Whenever someone argues that only a few urban women are independent – the ones harassing in-laws and misusing the laws, they must be asked to read some of such stories, as below, that happen in the rural segment of India.
A newly married woman, upset with her in-laws, allegedly killed an 18-month-old son of her sister-in-law and rendered her four other relatives severely ill on Monday by serving them poisonous tea in a village near here.
The incident has been reported from Machhiyahi village under Kotwali Dehat police station area in Uttar Pradesh. According to Bahraich’s Additional Superintendent of Police Kunwar Gyananjay Singh, the four persons who became severely ill, were identified as the woman’s father-in-law Pancham Jaiswal, brother-in-law Jitendra, sister-in-law Shivani and niece Srishti, Shivani’s daughter.
Singh added that the victim child Shivnath, who died, was the son of accused Anita’s other sister-in-law, while all four people, taken ill are undergoing treatment in a local hospital.
The additional SP said Anita was married to Jaiswal’s son Pooran last December, but she was upset with her in-laws. She had left her in-laws’ place recently but had returned a day earlier.
She was visited by her in-laws on Monday when her husband was not there in the house, the officer said, adding Anita prepared tea for them and served it after mixing some poisonous substance, brought from her parent’s home, in it.
A case has been registered against Anita on the complaint by her brother-in-law and she has been detained.
