Dowry harassment: woman ends life in Hyderabad


Hyderabad: A woman committed suicide allegedly due to her husband’s harassment for additional dowry at Kachiguda on Tuesday.

K Gautami (31) was married to K Madhukar in July 2018. At the time of marriage her parents reportedly gave articles and gold amounting to Rs 18 lakh.

“Since last few months Madhukar was reportedly harassing Gautami demanding her to arrange Rs 2 lakh from her parents as he needed money for some work. Despite expressing her inability to arrange the money Madhukar kept persisting,” said Mohammed Habeebullah Khan, Station House Officer, Kachiguda, quoting the parents of the woman.

On Monday night, the woman hanged herself from the ceiling fan at her house. The Kachiguda police registered a case and are investigating.
