A woman was killed allegedly by her in-laws over dowry issue at Kakudiamba village under the Maidalpur police station in the district on Tuesday night.
One Dharmananda Nayak of Kakudiamba had married Rasmita Satnami of Chichia village in Kalahandi district on July 1. But her in-laws were pressurising her to bring more money. Besides, they were allegedly torturing her physically and mentally.
