Hands of an Indian lady were allegedly burnt with boiling water on Thursday by her in-laws over not bringing dowry with her.
“They beat me for not bringing INR10,000 from my parents and then put my hands in boiling oil,” Karuna Waghmare told media while being in hospital in Maharashtra.
The newly-wed bride who belonged to a village in Kej tehsil charged her husband and in-laws for drenching her hands in boiling oil. Soon after the incident, the woman was admitted to the government hospital in Beed to get treatment for severe burns, said the police.
“My husband forcibly put one hand in boiling oil and my sisters-in-law poured boiling oil on my other hand,” Waghmare said.
According to a police official, they have deputed police team to take a statement of the woman and other relatives. However, the accused has not been arrested yet.
