Hyderabad (Telangana) [India], Mar. 26 (ANI): Each case of dowry death pulls back a progressive India a century back, reminding us of the immense greed and exploiting bride's family deeply rooted in the minds of people. Another such case of dowry death came to the fore, where a woman was found hanging at her residence here. 30-year-old Bhagyalaxmi left a suicide note mentioning in it the harassment which she was facing by her in-laws and husband. Unfortunately, the woman committed suicide on the day of her first marriage anniversary. Married to Shashidhar, an employee in the Google, on March 25, 2016, deceased Bhagyalaxmi was bearing torture right from the second day of her marriage. Bhagyalaxmi had earlier also filed a complaint in the women's police station after which the issue was settled for the moment. However, the police have now registered a case of dowry harassment under section 304B of the Indian Penal Code (IPC). "Probe is going on. The accused has not been arrested yet," Assistant Commissioner of Police (ACP) S. Ranga Rao told ANI. (ANI)
