Panjim Police on Tuesday arrested Brijesh Naik his younger brother Abhijit and their parents Manohar and Sunita in a case of death following the death of Suvarna Naik.
Brijesh had married Suvarna about 17 months back and the young bride, who has a seven month old child, hung herself to death on Sunday.
Police action came in the wake of the complaint by the Suvarna’s family who claimed that she was strangulated and further accused the Naik family of harassing her for dowry.
The Naik family refuted the allegation but were arrested for dowry harassment and abetment of suicide.
Moreover, since the death of the bride occurred within seven years of marriage, a Sub-Divisional Magisterial enquiry is also on.
