Harassed for dowry, wife hangs self

Basaveshwarnagar police said Rupashree was married to Kiran Kumar (30) of R P C Layout in Vijayanagar two and half years ago. The couple had a one-and-half-year-old daughter.

Rupashree’s father Ramanna, Food Inspector at Food and Civil Supplies Department, alleged that Kiran’s mother Gauri and sister Rashmi, an engineer, harassed his daughter for more dowry.

He had given two kg of gold jewellery besides Rs three lakh as dowry during his daughter’s wedding. Rupashree’s in-laws wanted her to bring more dowry to buy a site and constantly abused her.

She came to her parents’ house two weeks ago. On Saturday she went inside a room after dinner, closed the door and hanged herself from a ceiling fan, police said. Kiran Kumar, his parents and sister are absconding.
