Victim’s father’s statement : “I was always threatened by her husband to take back my daughter. On yesterday her mobile phone was broken by him. Recently, her husband sought moneys from me but I didn’t have now, so could not give. On yesterday, I called her whether I have to go to her home or not, but she replied me that I should not come but she will come today, but today her phone was switched off and today this incident happened. I guess, the brother-in-law of my daughter has done this”.
