Blinded by greed for more and more dowry, four members of a family not only tormented a woman, both mentally and physically, but also attempted to kill her to satiate their demands. All the four accused have been booked.
According to police, the accused Mohammed Fahiz Mohammed Arif (36), presently residing at Flat No. 101, Gautam Nagar, Rajkot, Gujarat had married to Kaiser Tabassum Mohammed Faeez (27), presently residing in New Gandhi Layout, Mankapur Ring Road, Nagpur on 24.08.13. However, just 15 days after the marriage till 8.11.14, Mohammed Fahiz Mohammed Arif, his father Mohammed Arif Gulab Rasool (55), mother Rubina Mohammed Arif (55) and brother Mohammed Kaif Mohammed Arif (28), all residents of Fahiz Nagar, Yavatmal, started torturing Kaiser Tabassum, mentally and physically, for dowry money frequently. Frightened by the continuous harassment, Kaiser Tabassum returned to her parents’ home. However, after some days, she went back to husband’s house with a hope that everything will be fine. But her hope was shattered when her husband Mohammed Fahiz Mohammed Arif, at about 0030 hours of Saturday (November 8), gagged mouth of Kaiser Mohammed with the help of a pillow when she was fast asleep and also poured a can of kerosene on her with an intention to kill her for not bringing the dowry money. However, Kaiser Tabassum anyhow managed to free herself from the scary situation and immediately lodged a complaint with Gittikhadan Police Station against her accused husband, in laws and brother-in-law.
Gittikhadan PSI Jaiswal, based on the complaint, has booked all the four accused under Sections 498(A), 307, 34 of the IPC and probing the matter further.
