Bandana and Jaminikant had got married on February 16. The parents of the deceased alleged that Gochhayat family had been harassing and torturing her for dowry since the day of marriage.

They were to visit her in-laws’ place on the fateful day for resolving the issue.

Mother of the deceased woman said that Jamini informed them that he had taken her to the Capital hospital for some treatment. However, they found their daughter dead after reaching the hospital.

“We saw deep rope mark around her neck and her body had turned blue. They have killed our daughter for dowry. Our daughter had earlier complained to us about being torture by them. We sent her back to the in-law’s house with the hope that the issue will be resolved, but that turned out to be a great mistake,” she lamented.
