According to a police complaint lodged by the woman’s father Nathulal, his daughter Pravesh Kumari got married to Rambaran three years ago and Rs 6 lakh was given to Rambaran’s family as dowry at that time.
He claimed that Rambaran’s family had been demanding an additional Rs 2 lakh, which led to frequent disputes between the husband and wife.
