Anuja Linjare and her son, Shree were found dead Tuesday when her mother-in-law returned home from work at 6 pm, police said. During investigation, police found Anuja was allegedly being harassed by her husband and in-laws which could have forced the woman to take the extreme step. A case of abetment to suicide and dowry has been registered against three people.
