In a shocking news coming from Odisha, a newly-married girl was killed by her in-laws in Ganjam district as her father failed to fulfill the dowry rituals of Rs 1.70 lakh through the new currency notes of 500 & 2000, Odisha police said today. This crime took place in a village called Rangipur located in Ganjam. The bride named Prabhati married the bridegroom named Laxmi Nayak, hailing from the same village on November 9, a day after the 500 & 1000 currency notes were demonetised.

The bride’s family had earlier agreed to fulfill the aforementioned amount as cash in the form of dowry on the marriage day. But the girl’s father was not aware of the sudden declaration on demonetisation by the Centre. Thus, when he offered Rs 1.70 lakh in old denomination notes, the bridegroom’s family refused to receive the cash. Instead, they demanded the new currency notes within a specified time.

The deceased bride, Prabhati’s parents alleged that her in-laws killed her yesterday as they failed to get the dowry in the form of new notes, according to an India Today report.“Laxmi Nayak and his family killed our daughter just because we were unable to provide the new notes. I want them to be punished,” reacted Prabhati’s mother Kunu Mandal. A case of dowry death has been registered at the Golanthara police station, said inspector-in-charge Alok Jena.

      Lesson learned: Never get your daughter married to Modi supporters. They will hold your daughter som out of greed for dowry and kill her out of love for Modi's policies.

            This is a sad story but a very inappropriate one to throw light on demonetisation.

              This post belittles the serious discussion around the so many other financial crimes to hide which the demonetisation nautanki has started....this crusade against "black money" comes after serious black money transfer increased on a logarithmic scale under the current govt.... and only 6% of black wealth is in cash!!!!

                So blame Demonetisation?? How about the persons who agreed to give and take dowry. The person who takes extreme step. Are we building our society that weak?? In which decade are we living today still encouraging these concepts.
