In a horrific incident, a pregnant woman was brutally killed by her husband over dowry harassment. This crime has taken place in Allagadda town in Kurnool district.
Going into details, a man by name Pratap, who belongs to Allagadda, got married to Susmita (20) nine months ago. Currently, she was with five months pregnant.
As she lost her mother at childhood, her father got a second marriage. Susmita was married to her stepmother's brother. At the time of the wedding, Pratap was given a dowry of nearly Rs 3 lakh.
The couple lived happily for some time, and recently husband and his mother started harassing Susmita demanding extra dowry. This led to a clash between the two families.
In this context, Pratap took his wife outside on Saturday afternoon. He stopped the bike near Battuluru village, cut off Susmita's hand nerves with a knife, tied her with chunni, dumped her in the pit at the farmland and went away from the spot.
Pratap returned home, and when asked about Susmita, he gave irrelevant answers. With this, the family members confronted him on Sunday morning, where he admitted that he killed his wife.
Immediately, the family members approached the police and lodged a complaint. On receipt of the information, the police recovered the body and shifted to the hospital for post-mortem. Over the incident, the police registered a case against Pratap, his other family members, and investigating further.
