26 April 2015 Rajasthan

22 year old Khusnuma who was the head of a sarpanch (village council) in Bharatpur was murdered for dowry by poisoning. Her family members say that her in-laws were demanding Rs 1 lakh and an SUV as dowry and when she failed to oblige them, they poisoned her. Khusnuma’s sister, Sahnaz, who was married to her husband’s brother, was also believed to have been murdered for dowry, but her death was not reported to the police as the women’s parents feared that the in-laws would harm Khusnuma. The police have lodged an FIR against in-laws for killing Khusnuma for dowry.
