A woman was allegedly killed by her husband and in-laws for dowry in Kurla (West). VB Nagar Police said 24-year-old Sana Khan was allegedly beaten to death by her in-laws on February 13. The in-laws tried to pass off the alleged murder as suicide. But family of the victim refused to perform final rites and investigation revealed Sana did not commit suicide.
Her husband Gyasuddin Khan (31), father-in-law Niyaz Khan (73), mother-in-law Aslam Khan (55) and brother-in-law Azam Khan were arrested on February 16. They were remanded in police custody for a week and on February 27, in judicial custody. "We are recording statements of neighbours and relatives of the victim," a police officer said.
In another case in Mahim, 28-year-old Rizwan Zaheer Shah was allegedly harassed by her in-laws after her father failed to fulfill their dowry demands. She claimed husband Zaheer (30) and in-laws Razzaq Shah (60), Rashida Razzaq (52) and Saadiq Razzaq (25) had been harassing her for the past few years for dowry.
Police registered a case under Domestic Violence and Do-wry Prohibition Acts Friday and are looking for the absconding accused who have been booked for murder attempt.
