Woman poisoned to death allegedly by in-laws for not bearing male child

Muzaffarnagar: Unable to bear a male child, a mother of two was allegedly poisoned to death by her in-laws who then tried to cremate her body without informing her family at the Jansath police station area in Muzaffarnagar.

Acting on information received from some neighbours, police stopped the cremation midway on Friday and arrested the deceased Pinki’s in-laws. A case has also been registered against her husband.

The victim’s father has lodged a complaint alleging that the in-laws were demanding dowry from his daughter and harassing her for not giving birth to a male child.

He alleged that the accused persons had poisoned her and tried to cremate her without informing him.

Police said they are searching for her absconding husband.
