Doctor commits suicide over dowry harassment

Hyderabad, Nov 01: An anesthesiologist committed suicide by overdosing pills late on Wednesday here in Alwal. The police suspected that dowry harassment by in-laws ensued her to end life.

According to Alwal sub-inspector Varaprasad, Jayasri and her husband Karthik got to know about each other when they were pursuing MBBS in China. The duo professed their love to parents for which they agreed to their marriage.

Jayasri s family offered Rs 25 lakh cash, 45 tolas of gold, 2 kg of silver to Karthik s family as dowry during the time of marriage in 2015.

Ever since the couple returned from Honeymoon, the in-laws started harassing her for additional dowry and made casteist slurs at her as she reportedly belongs to a lower community.

Fed up with the harassment, Jayasri consumed pills and ended her life. After the in-laws found her lying unconscious, they shifted her to a private hospital where she was declared brought dead by the doctors. Based on the complaint filed by Jaya s father Guruvaiah, the police registered a case under relevant sections of IPC.
