Newly-Wed Bride Torched to Death for Not Bringing Motorbike as Dowry
GUJRANWALA: A newly-wed bride succumbed to her wounds on Tuesday after she was doused in petrol and set ablaze by her husband for failing to bring a motorbike as dowry.
Madiha, 22, had married Amir two months back. She was often beaten up by her husband for not being able to bring a motorbike as dowry, her family said.
Four days back, her husband and in-laws doused her in petrol and set her on fire. She was rushed to the hospital in a critical condition where she succumbed to her wounds.
The family registered an FIR against the husband and in-laws after which police arrested Amir, but her mother-in-law and father-in-law fled.
