VHP's Mirzapur unit president Ashok Jaiswal, his son Sunil Jaiswal and wife have been arrested on Tuesday from Barkachha locality, 60 km from Varanasi, on the complaints of his daughter-in-law Ruby Jaiswal's family, they said.

Abhay Jaiswal, brother of Rubi (24), who was found hanging from the ceiling fan in her room yesterday, alleged that she was first strangled to death and then her body was hanged.

He said Ruby's in-laws were demanding Rs. 1 lakh as dowry for the past on year but due to their weak financial condition they failed to pay the amount and thus she was killed by them, he said.
