Man convicted of wife's death in dowry case

The convict, Inayat, was found guilty of harassing his wife Yasmin for dowry and setting her ablaze after dousing her with kerosene. She was admitted to the hospital where she succumbed to her injuries.

A case was registered with Banaswadi police and a chargesheet was filed.
The Sixth Fast Track Court Judge D Y Basapure convicted him under sections 498 (A) and 304 (B) of IPC and articles 3 and 4 of Dowry Prohibition Act, 1961.

The couple were married in 2002. Yasmin’s family had given Inayat Rs 10,000 cash and gold jewellery at that time. He and his parents, however, demanded Rs 50,000 more from Yasmin. When the demand was not fulfilled, they physically tortured her and later set her ablaze.
