Kerala dowry death: Husband nabbed after wife found hanging

ITDC INDIA EPRESS/ITDC NEWS R After a 24-year-old woman was found hanging inside a bathroom at Sasthamkotta in Kerala's Kollam district, her husband was taken into police custody on Monday.

S.V. Vismaya, a native of Kaithode in Kollam, was spotted hanging inside the bathroom of the house of S. Kiran Kumar, her husband, on Monday morning.

She had sent a series of WhatsApp messages to her relatives on Sunday over the alleged harassment she was suffering from him over dowry.

A student of Ayurveda medicine, she had also sent photos of the wounds and beating marks on her body, which she suffered during the recent severe physical torture from Kumar.

In her WhatsApp chat, which her family shared with the media, Vismaya alleged that her husband did not like the car gifted by her father as dowry and used to beat her over that.

In the shocking chats, the woman also alleged that she was dragged by her hair and stamped on the face over dowry especially over the car by Kumar, a motor vehicle department employee.

He used to verbally abuse her father, saying that he deserved more dowry according to his stature but got only very little, the woman also charged in the chat.

Her father, Thrivikraman Nair, said that the family had given 100 sovereigns of gold and over one acre land besides a car worth Rs 10 lakh as dowry to Kumar during their wedding last year.

"But, he did not like the car and wanted Rs 10 lakh as cash instead of it. As I said it was not possible, he used to torture my daughter. He had beaten Vismaya in front of us after coming to our home during midnight last January," an emotional Nair told a TV channel.

He said his daughter would not have taken this drastic step and suspected that Kumar might have murdered her.
