In a horrific incident, a woman and her three-month-old daughter were allegedly burnt alive by her in-laws over demand of dowry in Rampur’s Hajipura mohalla of Uttar Pradesh on September 18.

The two victims were allegedly doused with kerosene and set ablaze by her husband, Mohammad Qasim. 

Mohammad Javed, the victim’s brother, said: “She had a 3-year-old son and 3-month-old daughter. She was living in her father’s house after her in-laws forced her out for dowry. They used to torture her, on Wednesday they called her home in the morning and burnt her along with her little one.”

He said that her sister’s in-laws did not inform them about the whereabouts of Shabnam and her 3-month-old daughter and that they were informed of the incident from neighbours.

Police later registered a case against the victim’s in-laws and husband under Sections 302 (murder), 304-B (dowry death), 498-A (husband or relative of husband of a woman subjecting her to cruelty) of IPC and Sections 3 and 4 of Dowry Prohibition Act. 

Superintendent of Police Ajay Sharma said: “A dowry and murder case has been registered. The investigation will be done on the basis of circumstantial evidence. Efforts are on to nab the accused.”

The bodies were sent to the district hospital for postmortem.
