Bantwal: A heartbreaking incident of dowry harassment has come to light in Bantwal, where a newlywed woman, identified as Nauseen (22), took her own life due to persistent mental and emotional abuse by her in-laws. Nauseen, a resident of Subhash Nagar in Sajeep Muda village, had entered into a love marriage with Azman from Ullal just three months ago.

Despite the love marriage, Nauseen’s family generously gifted her 180 grams of gold as a wedding dowry. However, her mother-in-law Zubaida, along with her sister-in-law Azmea and her husband, subjected her to constant taunts and mental harassment, claiming that the dowry provided by the bride’s family was insufficient. This relentless pressure and criticism, coupled with emotional torment, forced Nauseen to leave her husband’s home in Ullala and seek refuge at her mother’s house in Sajeepa.

Tragically, on August 25, when no one was at home, Nauseen succumbed to her mental distress and took her own life by hanging herself in her room. A formal complaint has been filed with the Naseer Nagar police station, holding her husband, mother-in-law, and sister-in-law responsible for her untimely demise.

Nauseen and Azman’s love story had blossomed through social media platforms, primarily Instagram. Despite their families’ initial consent and support, Nauseen’s marital life took a dark turn due to constant pressure from her husband and in-laws regarding dowry. Her family, devastated by the loss, is now seeking justice for Nauseen.

A relative of the deceased, Siddique, has called for a thorough investigation and legal action in the matter, emphasizing the need for justice to be served to Nauseen and her grieving family. The incident sheds light on the persisting issue of dowry harassment in society and the urgent need for stringent measures to curb such practices and protect vulnerable individuals.
