Perturbed over demands being made by her husband for dowry, a woman attempted to end her life by consuming poisonous substances in the premises of Jhajjar police station in Jhajjar on Thursday.

The woman, identified as Dhanpati, wife of Mukesh, a resident of Girawar village, has been admitted to PGIMS in Rohtak where her condition is stated to be critical, police said.

The incident took place when Dhanpati came to the police station to know the police action regarding a complaint she had lodged with the police against her husband on Wednesday.

She consumed the poisonous substances near a Peer Majaar located in the police station premises and fell on the floor after some time.

Some policemen took her to a hospital here from where she was referred to PGIMS at Rohtak.

Jhajjar SP Patram Singh said she had lodged a complaint on Wednesday that her husband Mukesh was not only forcing her to bring dowry from her parents but also torturing her for mounting pressure on her to meet his demand.
