People in Agra, Uttar Pradesh, have raised a question on the death of a Hindu woman who married a Muslim man a year ago. People gathered outside the police station after the victim's family filed a complaint against her husband.
According to police, the victim, Varsha (22), had an interfaith marriage with a local person, Faheem (26), a year ago and was living away from the city. The victim's family has alleged that she did not die by suicide and was being harassed by her in-laws.
Police lodged an FIR against Faheem and four members of his family under IPC section 304-B (dowry death) at Shahganj Police Station, SSP, Agra, Sudhir Kumar Singh said.
"There is no possibility that she killed herself. She was not happy and she told us she's trying to adjust. It seems she could not adjust anymore and they killed her," victim's brother Dushyant said.
