Newly wed woman found dead, family alleges dowry killing
Khordha: Tension ran high in Gobindpur village under Begunia police limits in the district after a newly-married woman found dead at her in-laws’ house under mysterious conditions this morning and her family alleged dowry killing.
The deceased has been identified as Annapurna Jena of Baraput village under Baideswar police limits.
The incident came to light this morning after some neighbours of the victim spotted her body lying in the bedroom and called up police. Her in-laws were found missing from the house also.
Begunia Police reached the spot and sent the body for autopsy to start investigation into the incident.
On the other hand, the family members of Annapurna have alleged that she has been killed by her in-laws. She was being tortured by her in-laws since her marriage to bring more dowry from home which could have led to her murder, they feared.
Meanwhile, the accused in-laws of the deceased are absconding and police have launched efforts to trace them.
