In-Laws Burn Woman Alive For Not Getting Them a Bolero as Dowry

A woman was allegedly burnt alive by her in-laws over demands for an SUV in Uttar Pradesh’s Sitapur district. Three years ago, Mamta married Satyapal Singh, and even bought an Alto car as part of dowry. However, her in-laws were not content with the hatchback, which they sold off shortly after Mamta’s wedding.

According to Mamta’s brother Karan Singh, she was repeatedly harassed by family members of her husband over endless dowry demands.
