In 2012, Pinky Yadav married Sunil Kumar. A few days after their marriage, the woman's in-laws allegedly started harassing her for dowry.
"Last year, Sunil was diagnosed with jaundice. Pinky's in-laws told her to arrange Rs one lakh for his treatment. When she could not bring the money, they started torturing her," Superintendent of Police (rural) Surendra Pratap Singh said, citing a complaint filed by the woman's brother.
Based on Pinky's brother's complaint, a case of murder and dowry has been registered against Sunil Kumar and his family members. The police are on the lookout for the accused, who are absconding.
