She alleges that soon after, her husband and his family members started harassing her because they did not want a girl child. Naz further alleged that her husband’s family also made her undergo abortion for being pregnant again with a girl child.
“I have been staying at my matrimonial home since past 15 days. After I came here, my husband Shahnawaz Akhtar has been demanding Rs 10 lakh dowry. My father passed away 9 months back after he got to know. My mother became a widow. How will my mother take care of my and my daughter’s expenses? We have no source of income. What do I do? I want to end my life,” she said.
She then further appealed to the UP administration and UP CM Yogi Adityanath to help her. “If anything happens to me, my husband Shahnawaz Akhtar and my brother in law Wasim Akhtar will be responsible,” she said.
Following this, the UP Police got into action and 7 people have been arrested till now.
