HYDERABAD: Alleged harassment for additional dowry by her husband drove an MBA graduate to end her life at Narsingi on the city outskirts on Sunday. The victim 35-year-old T Mallika allegedly consumed poison and was found lying unconscious near their home, said police. According to police, Mallika hailing from Warangal and E Koti Reddy from Guntur district in Andhra Pradesh got married six years ago.
