Medico family claims that she was killed while her husband says that she killed herself.
Hyderabad: A 20 years old medico was purportedly set ablaze by her husband on this Sunday night after continuous dowry harassment.
Rendering to the police department, Harika was wedded to her cousin, Rishi Kumar, 26, a private sector employee and they were living in Rock Town Colony at LB Nagar in Hyderabad. Her family claims that she was killed while her husband claims that she slaughtered herself.
“Harika was previously staying in a hostel and having long-term EAMCET coaching, as per Rishi’s wishes. After she succeeded to get a Bachelor of Dental Surgery seat, she had come back to Rishi and both were in discussions on which university to select,” stated the ACP of LB Nagar, P.Venugopala Rao. They initiated quarreling when Harika declined to join in a famous college where Rishi had paid over 1 lakh for a BDS admission.
“Rishi called Harika’s parents and said them that she was found lifeless. He told them she had committed suicide by suicide,” the ACP said. Harika’s parents, who came to the spot, said that they found her body in suspicious conditions and allege that Rishi slews her for extra dowry. A case of murder and dowry demise was filed under pertinent Sections of the IPC and an inquiry is on. LB Nagar police have got Rishi into custody.
