In a bizarre incident that came to light from Hyderabad on Monday, a medical aspirant has been allegedly killed by her software engineer husband for failing to quality MBBS entrance exam.

As per reports, in the incident that took place on Sunday at Rock Town Colony of LB Nagar area of Hyderabad the husband allegedly killed the wife and later set her ablaze.

Although, Rushi Kumar, the deceased woman’s husband claimed that  she committed suicide, the parents of the deceased have alleged that the entire incident was a planned murder. They have also filed a complaint of harassment for dowry.

“Harika’s husband claims she committed suicide, but after we visited the scene, it appears to be a murder. We suspect that the man killed his wife,” ACP (LB Nagar division) Venugopala Rao said.

“Harika and Rushi got married two years ago. He had been harassing her as she didn’t get an MBBS seat. She got (admission in) BDS this year. He also harassed her for dowry… It is a planned murder,” said Harika’s mother.

As of now, the body has been sent for autopsy and an investigation has been initiated in the case.
