Police registered a dowry death case after the father of the pregnant woman, whose body was found hanging at her Sector 37 house, filed a complaint. Noida Police registered the case against her husband and in-laws. The accused have been arrested.

Sector 39 Station Officer Anil Samania said, “Victim Shardha Pandey’s father Udey Prakash Tiwari alleged that she was killed for dowry. He lodged a case against her husband Ashish Pandey, mother-in-law Veena Pandey and father-in-law Santosh Pandey. All the three accused have been arrested and sent to jail.”

On Tuesday afternoon, Shrada’s body was found hanging from the ceiling fan hook. Her body was found when her husband Ashish, who had gone to fetch his parents from the railway station, returned home. Though her husband claimed it to be suicide, the victim’s father and sister have alleged that she was murdered for dowry," said Samania.

Ashish has denied the charge and said he and his family were being falsely implicated in a dowry death case when her wife had committed suicide.
