The woman’s husband and father-in-law have been detained for interrogation after her parents filed a complaint against them alleging dowry harassment and murder, the police said. The woman got married a couple of years ago and lived in Saithra village under Chiksana police station limits.


On Friday, she and her child sustained 90 percent burn injuries. They died during treatment. The exact cause of the fire is yet to be ascertained, Deputy Superintendent of Police Brijesh Upadhyay said, without divulging further details.


The bodies were handed over to the woman’s family members after the post-mortem on Saturday. Forensic experts have been asked to collect evidence, he added.
