The body of a woman was found hanging at her house in Yakubpur, following which her husband and father-in-were arrested on the charge of being involved in dowry death, the police said today.

The body was found hanging two days back and it was thought to be a case of suicide. But today, on the complaint of the woman's brother, a case of dowry death was registered against the woman and her in-laws, they said.

He alleged her sister's in-laws were demanding more dowry and as they could not fulfil their demand they killed her, a police official said, adding, following this, the woman's husband and father-in-have been arrested.
