Woman’s Body Recovered from a Crematorium in a Suspected #Dowry #Murder Case
Noida, 23 Oct 2015,
The body of 29-year-old Surekha was taken off a burning pyre by police in Dadri after her parents complained she had been murdered and was being cremated in a hurry by her in-laws. The family had come to know of their daughter’s death from an acquaintance, as the in-laws did not inform them about it. When a police team reached the crematorium, the in-laws of the deceased fled the scene. The body was on a burning pyre, and had to be doused for the police to recover the remains. Surekha had been married for 5 years and had a 4 year old son. Her parents said her in-laws had been torturing her for dowry, and physically abused her often.
