19-yr-old bride strangled & hacked to death for #dowry

14 March 2015, Bareilly

Barely two months after her wedding, a 19 year old bride was killed for dowry by her husband and in-laws. The woman’s father, a farmer, said he had gifted Rs 1.5 lakh cash and a motorcycle to his daughter at the time of marriage, but her in-laws used to beat her for more dowry.
He said that her husband’s uncle had threatened to kill her if she did not manage to gift a car to their family.

The father said on Thursday he got a phone call from a villager of Gahluiya informing him that his daughter had died. When he reached the home, he saw her body full of cuts and bruises. She seemed to have been strangled.
