Mother and Baby Girl Burnt Alive for Dowry
Allahabad, Gujarat, Nov 09, 2012
Sushila Gupta who married Rakesh Gupta in 2009, often complained to her parents that her husband and in-laws were abusing her for more dowry. They wanted a motorcycle and Rs. 50,000 more.
When they didn’t get more dowry, Sushila was locked into a box with her one and half year old daughter, and the box was set on fire. To ensure they didn’t get away, her husband and in-laws also locked the door from outside. By the time the neighbors broke the door open and tried to rescue the mother and child, both had burnt to death. Report here
