A newlywed woman was allegedly attacked by her husband for dowry at a village in Abohar subdivision of Fazilka district.

Reports said Kuldeep Kaur of Dandewali village was married to Chinder Singh of Khippawali village six months ago.

Since their marriage, she was allegedly being harassed to bring more dowry, which her parents could not afford, Kuldeep claimed.
