Man, family get jail for trying to kill his wife
The district court has awarded seven years rigorous imprisonment to a woman’s husband and her in-laws over an attempt to murder case.
Tauhid, a resident of Kherlibhav, had lodged FIR at Rabupura police station stating that his sister Husno had married Ghaziabad resident Mehtab on May 29, 2004. Tauhid claimed his family had given the couple a motorcycle, other goods and ₹1 lakh cash. Her in-laws were, however, insisting that they pay them more dowry, including a car and more cash, he alleged. They were mentally and physically torturing his sister, he alleged.
On July 10, 2013 Huson’s in-laws poured kerosene over her and tried to set her on fire. However, her neighbours came to her rescue.
At the district court court on August 4, 2015, charges under under IPC section 498A, 307,506 and dowry prohibition act were framed against Mehtab, Riyajul Hasan (Husnpo’s father-in-law), Quresha (mother-in-law), Zubair (brother-in-law) and Shabana (sister-in-law).
