A Man Kills his Wife Over Dowry In Ghaziabad, UP.
A 24-year-old woman was shot and killed Tuesday by her husband for not bringing enough dowry after their marriage in the Raj Nagar Extension area, police said.
Sarika (24), a native of the Upawali village of Budhana tehsil in the Muzaffarnagar district, married Kuldeep alias Mintoo in February last year.
She was regularly harassed for not receiving any more dowry from her parents and the couple used to fight over the issue frequently, said senior police official (City-1st) Nipun Agarwal.
The victim’s parents filed an FIR under the Dowry Prohibition Act at the Nand Gram Police Station, as the incident took place in Saddiq Nagar village, near the Raj Nagar extension area.
After murdering his wife, Kuldeep and his father Moolchand fled the home, Agarwal said.
On Tuesday morning, Kuldeep had an argument with his wife for failing to comply with the demand for 50 lakh rupees in cash. In a fit of rage, he drew a gun and shot his wife three times. The bullets pierced his lower abdomen, stomach, and one in his temple, killing him at the scene, the police officer said.
Neighbors informed the police about the shooting incident and police personnel arrived at the scene to find Sarika’s body lying in a pool of blood.
They immediately sent the body for an autopsy. Police teams have been dispatched to arrest the missing father and son.
Kuldeep has already been jailed for a murder case of a city businessman. In addition, the defendant was registered under the Gun Law and other criminal cases, Agarwal added.
