A twenty-seven-year-old housewife, Janaki, alle-gedly committed suicide by hanging at her house in Manikonda after her in-laws reportedly demanded more dowry.

Police said Janaki was married to software professional Shanti Reddy three years ago. Her parents had given her cash and household articles as dowry at the time of marriage.

However, her husband and in-laws started pressurising her for additional dowry. Unable to bear the torture, the woman committed suicide.
