Lahan, Feb 9: A newly-wed woman has been found dead at Choharwa, Golbazar Municipality-2, Siraha under dubious circumstances.
The deceased Sarita Sahani, 23, is said to have committed suicide by self-immolating at her house. However, her death has been seen in the light of a framed incident by her husband and his family members, shared Ram Bharoshi Yadav, a local.
Deceased Sahani’s husband, Sitaram Sahani and his family members have absconded following the incident, adding further to the mysterious death of the newly-wed bride.
Locals believe that the death was not deliberate attempt of the newly-wed but a well-planned murder orchestrated by the husband’s family over a dispute related to dowry. The marriage had been solemnized only two months ago.
The dead body of Shahani has been taken to the District Hospital for post mortem and further investigation into the case was underway, said Santosh Niraula, Police Inspector at Area Police Office, Golbazar.
