Was Policewoman Anamika a Victim of #Dowry Greed or #Vyapam State Corruption?

July 6, 2015, Madhya Pradesh

Police allege Sub-InspectorAnamika Kushwaha committed suicide by drowning and was a victim of dowry harassment.  They have arrested her husband and in-laws.  Anamika’s death was believed to have been connected with the mysterious deaths surrounding the investigation of one of the biggest corruption scandal in India involving bribes and corruption for medical entrance exams of Vyapam.  There are believed to be more than 50 mysterious deaths involved with the investigations.

While the police have denied any link to the Vyapam scam, Kushwaha’s death was earlier linked to the scam because she was selected through an examination conducted by the Madhya Pradesh Professional Examination Board (MPPEB) of Vyapam.

The 25-year-old, who was undergoing training at the police academy in Sagar, is said to have jumped into a lake, and  post-mortem report showed drowning as the cause of death.

Kushwaha was married to Ravi Sikarwar, an employee of a leading private bank posted in Jhansi. His father, Narottam Singh Sikarwar, a retired army personnel, was also arrested from Sagar. An offence under the dowry law was registered after Kushwaha’s father, a head constable posted in Morena, gave a statement to the police.
