Abused for a Car in #Dowry, Another Woman in Punjab Supposedly Commited Suicide
Gurdaspur, 31 Oct 2015,
In a case, like so many in India, Jaspinder Kaur, is said to have committed suicide due to dowry harassment. Her uncle said the in-laws had been demanding a car in dowry and used to beat her up. She was married to Gurmukh Singh, a resident of Kang village, three years ago. Her husband went abroad recently. Police say, unable to bear the harassment, she ended her life by hanging herself from the ceiling fan. Based on the complaint, police have registered a case against her father-in-law Baldev Singh and mother-in-law Gurmeet Kaur, who are absconding. Many dowry related murders, are often staged as suicides and with shoddy police work, these cases are rapidly dismissed as suicides or accidents.
