COIMBATORE: Parents and relatives of a young woman lodged a petition with district collector Archana Patnaik on Monday, alleging Sangeetha, 23, an engineering graduate, had committed suicide on January 31 after she was harassed by her husband and his family for more dowry. They also lodged a complaint with the city police seeking their arrest.

Sangeetha, a BE (Information Technology) graduate from Sullivan street got married to Jeyesh Kanna, 27, from Samy Iyyer New Street in the city on November 2, 2014. He was an engineer in Muscat. The bride's family had given 25 sovereigns of gold jewels, 2kgs of silver and Rs3lakh in cash as dowry.

"My son-in-law Kanna left to Muscat a few weeks after the marriage. He told me to send him Rs70,000 every month for renting a house there. I was also asked to give him and his family more cash and jewels. Only then would he allow Sangeetha to join him in Muscat," said Venkatraman, her father. Unable to bear the torture, Sangeetha returned to her parents' home.

On January 31, Sangeetha committed suicide by hanging at her parent's house on Sullivan Street. Variety Hall road police registered a case. Meanwhile, Venkatraman lodged a dowry harassment complaint against Kanna, his parents Rajasubramanian and Rajeswari and his brothers Jeyaprasanth and Jeyanthraj. Variety Hall road police registered a case against the family members under sections 304 (B) (dowry death) of IPC.

The family has been absconding for the last 15 days. "We are seeking the district collector's intervention to arrest the guilty for abetment of suicide," said Venkatraman.
