RAJKOT: A retired policeman and two of his family members were booked on Monday for abetting the suicide of his daughter-in-law, who ended her life here on Sunday.
Police said victim Manchhaba Jadeja committed suicide by hanging herself from the ceiling of her house in Rameshwar Park in Railnagar area. The victim's father in-law Dilubha Jadeja, retired assistant sub-inspector, had informed the city police control room about the incident. The investigation was handed over to Pradyumannagar police station.
Manchhaba's family created a ruckus at the civil hospital when her body was brought for postmortem. Ranjeetsinh Parmar, Manchhaba's brother has alleged in his police complaint against her husband and in-laws that his sister was being physically and mentally tortured for not bringing Rs 50,000 as dowry. This forced her to take the drastic step, he has alleged.
Dilubha, his son Lakhdhirsinh and wife Ansoyaba have been named as accused in the complaint and have been booked on the charge of abetment to suicide, said assistant sub-inspector T J Mishra of Pradyumannagar police station.
