Dowry death brews anger in Nagaon

Yet another dowry-related death sends no less shock and anger in Nagaon district where police have drawn flak for failure.

The incident took place in Bhoraguri village in Puranigudam where a woman was allegedly killed by her in laws on Wednesday night. Identified as Dharitri Gayan, the 16 year old was married to Pankaj Gayan eight ago.

According to Dharitri’s family members, she has been facing inhuman torture by the in laws for the last couple of months only because of dowry.

Dharitri was found burning under mysterious circumstances on Tuesday night and her body was rushed to Guwahati. But of no avail. She breathed her last as she was undergoing treatment on Thursday wee hours.

Her family members have called it a murder case and moved police for action. But much to a major disappointment, police have yet to arrest anybody in this connection.
