A day after the death of 25-year-old Pooja Rani,police booked husband Rakesh alias Prince and three others.

Her body was found hanging in the lobby of the under-construction house of her in-laws on Thursday afternoon.

However,no arrests have been made so far.

Akash Chand,the victim’s father who came on Thursday night from Sujjanpur in Hamirpur district,alleged that the family had been torturing his daughter from day one on one pretext or another. She was also tortured for bringing less dowry.

SHO Davinder Singh said,“Earlier,the husband said robbers came to their house and took away jewellery after killing his wife. However,that story was totally false.”

Singh added,“Jewellery was found from the house only and later,the husband admitted that he was telling a wrong story. We have booked the husband,mother-in-law and two brothers-in-law of the victim.”

Police,however,said the post-mortem report would establish whether the woman was murdered or she was forced to commit suicide.
