Badaun (Uttar Pradesg):
In yet another case of dowry death, a woman identified as Pinky Yadav was allegedly killed over dowry by her in-laws and her body was later hanged from a tree outside their village. The incident took place in Hasaura village here late last night, the police said.

Pinky Yadav had in 2012 entered into wedlock with Sunil Kumar. A few days after their marriage, the woman's in-laws started harassing her for dowry, according to PTI.

"Last year, Sunil was diagnosed with jaundice. Pinky's in-laws told her to arrange Rs one lakh for his treatment. When she could not bring the money, they started torturing her," Superinendent of Police (rural) Surendra Pratap Singh said, citing a complaint filed by the woman's brother.
