Newly wed woman commits suicide over in-laws’ refusal to visit parent’s home in UP’s Ballia


Ballia: A 22-year-old woman allegedly hanged herself with a saree in Rajpur Nevri locality in Uttar Pradesh’s Ballia on Sunday because she was not allowed to go to her parents’ home by her in-laws, police said on Sunday. Police have registered a case of dowry murder against six persons including the woman’s husband at the complaint of her father.

Nisha, the deceased, wanted to go to her parents’ house after her husband, a navy man, had gone away to join duty, but was refused, police said. Her in-laws were allegedly not ready to send her immediately and were talking of a ‘muhurat’ (auspicious time) to allow her to visit her paternal house, they said.

Kotwali Police Station SHO Rajiv Singh said that on the complaint filed by Nisha’s father Dhruv Prasad Verma, a case of dowry murder has been registered against six persons including her husband, father-in-law, and mother-in-law. Nisha had married Amit on December 2, 2022, police said. Her body has been sent for a post mortem examination, they added.
