HYDERABAD: A woman hailed from Malkajgiri filed a case of dowry harassment against her husband and in-laws. She is from a low caste community but got married with a man who belongs to a high caste community.
A 26-year-old pregnant woman reported police stating that she had undergone five abortions according to the demand of her husband and in-laws.
