A bride-to-be allegedly committed by hanging herself after her fianc and his relatives demanded dowry, police said on Thursday.

The incident took place in Kedi village under Babri police station limits on Wednesday, they said.

Khushbu, the victim, was supposed to enter wedlock with Yunus, a resident of Hind village, on February 20.

Yunus, however, allegedly demanded Rs 5 lakh cash and a car from Khushbu's parents, failing which, he refused to marry her, police said.
