A 22-year-old woman was murdered allegedly by her husband and in-laws over dowry in Nelamangala on Friday morning.
In all, four people killed her in front of her two children and hanged her from the ceiling before fleeing. They also informed the victim’s father about the death, police said.
Jameela, a resident of Channappa Layout, was married to Azgar Sharief, a mechanic with a private company, four years ago. The police said the incident took place around 11 am, when Azgar, along with his mother, father and brother thrashed her for dowry.
When she tried to escape with her two daughters, they dragged her inside the house and hanged her while the kids were watching, the police added.
Soon after the murder, Azgar and his family members fled leaving the children. They called Jameela’s father Sharief over phone and told him that they had hanged his daughter. Sharief rushed to Jameela’s house and found her body hanging and the children were crying, the police said. He informed the police and filed a case against Azgar’s family. The Nelamangala police have arrested Azgar and three other members of his family.
