Amazon employee in India commits suicide because of #dowry abuse

12 June 2015, Bangalore

Deepika B. , a 24 year-old Amazon. com, committed suicide, and left a note saying she did so because she could not bear the abuse by her husband for dowry. She had moved out of her in-laws and husband’s house, to escape the abuse and had been living separately. But her parents were pressurizing her to return to her husband’s house and compromise to make the marriage work.
