Pratibha was killed on Tuesday night by her in-laws after ten months of her marriage because of dowry. When her parents reached the place, they informed the police and demanded the arrest her husband and family.
Her father and brother have alleged that the groom had claimed of having completed a degree in B. Pharmacy. The groom had also told that he had been abroad for a specialised course.The girl’s parents were impressed and they married their daughter to the man.
The allegation is that it was only after the marriage that Pratibha got to know that her husband had qualified 12th and never went abroad.
The relatives of the groom also believed him when he said that he works in Delhi, but it is only now that they found out that he never had a job.
The girl’s father, Trilok said that the couple got married in May 2015 and at that time Pratibha was just 24 year-old. They gave more than that they could afford in dowry. But the groom’s family always tortured Pratibha. Initially they forced her to get a car following which they used to beat her everyday. After all these incidents, Pratibha went back to her home. Later on Tuesday, her in-laws came to take her home and apologised for their mistakes. And on that very night they killed Pratibha.
Pratibha who had done M.tech used to teach at a college in Panipat but her husband forced and even tortured her to leave the job.
When her parents got the news, they rushed to her in-laws place and started protesting and demanded to arrest the whole family. They even refused to take away their daughter’s body. Meanwhile police brought an ambulance in order to keep her body inside it but the enraged family members shut the door and did not allow the police to touch their daughter’s body.
