Lalita, who had tied nuptial knots with Sanoj Kumar a year ago, died today morning, police said. They said her in-laws, who were sleeping on the roof, saw smoke bellowing from her room early morning today.
They broke into the room and immediately took her to a hospital, where she was declared brought dead. Her brother, however, alleged that her in-laws were demanding dowry from their family and burnt her to death. On his complaint, police registered a case against her in-laws and launched an inquest into the matter.
