Kurnool: In a bizarre incident, a woman was allegedly roasted alive by her in-laws in this district on Sunday.
According to police, Lavanya was married to Nagarjuna of Palakolanu a year ago. Her in-laws started torturing her for dowry from the day one. Lavanya was not sent to her parental home even when her father Rama Krishna died ten days ago.
When they made sure that they could not get anything from Lavanya’s mother’s family after her father died, she was driven out of the house. Instead of going back to her house, Lavanya took shelter at the Water Tank in the village. Enraged by her action, her father-in-law and brother-in-law allegedly poured kerosene and set her afire. She was rushed to the Kurnool General Hospital where she succumbed to injuries.
