19-year-old girl, married two months ago, commits suicide in Okhla

It was two months ago when 19-year-old girl got married.

However, the marriage bliss didn’t last long as the girl identified as Shivangi, married to Vipin Sagar, the younger brother of former music reality show contestant, committed suicide by hanging herself at her husband’s house in Bharat Nagar area after facing harassment from her in-laws who were opposed to the marriage.

They had a court marriage and Vipin’s family hadn’t accepted their union. They were staying in a house opposite Vipin’s father’s house, said a police officer as quoted by PTI.

Shivangi’s parents have alleged that she was physically harassed by her in-laws and husband for dowry and was quite disturbed. An SDM enquiry is also being carried out in the matter.

“A case has been registered under sections 498-A (Husband or relative of husband of a woman subjecting her to cruelty) and 304B (Dowry death) IPC against Vipin and his parents at the Bharat Nagar Police Station. Vipin is currently detained and is being interrogated by police,” said the officer.

The development has left residents shocked in the locality. Moreover, the issue has also grabbed national headlines with dailies giving coverage to the incident. The probe into the incident is to begin soon.
