A day after a 28-year-old woman allegedly committed suicide, the police on Friday arrested her husband and booked her in-laws for allegedly harassing her for dowry.

According to the police, the body of the woman was found hanging from the ceiling fan on May 9. The husband had recorded a statement with the police, saying that she had allegedly committed suicide. However, no note was recovered from the spot.
