Gurgaon: A 23-year-old woman and her nine-month-old daughter were found dead in a Gurgaon village on Monday.
The police has booked the deceased’s husband and in-laws under sections pertaining to murder and dowry death.
Neeru and her daughter Sakshi were found dead in Daultabad Kuni village under Pataudi police station.
“We have booked Govind and his parents – Kundan and Sheela – under sections 302 (murder), 304B (dowry death), 498A (cruelty for dowry) and 34 (common intent) of Indian Penal Code,” Hira Singh, Chief of Pataudi police station, told IANS.
While Neeru’s corpse was found hanging in the sheds built for cattle, her daughter’s body was floating in a water tank of the house.
Neeru, who hailed from Thada village in Alwar district of Rajasthan, got married to Govind around two years ago.
Her in-laws claimed that she first killed her daughter and then committed suicide.
However, the deceased’s father Mukesh alleged that his daughter and grand daughter were murdered for dowry and they were unhappy with Neeru for having delivered a girl child.
No arrests have been made yet.
