Muzaffarnagar (UP): Two women were allegedly poisoned to death by their respective in-laws in two separate incidents here, police said on Thursday.

Ritu (30) was poisoned by her in-laws over a dowry demand in the Police Line area Wednesday.

 

A case has been registered against her husband Ankit (26) and father-in-law, who are both absconding, the police said.

The body of the victim has been sent for a post-mortem and a probe is on.

According to a complaint lodged by Ritu's father, Sukhpal, her in-laws were demanding more dowry from the family.

When the demand was not met, Ritu was killed. She married Ankit in November 2013.
