The deceased who was identified as Reena Devi married Dipak Kumar (son of JD-U leader Arun Kushwaha) in the year 2015, and also had an 11-month-old child.
Reena’s father Mahesh Bhagat said in a statement, “We had given cash, jewelry, and other gift items at the time of marriage but my daughter’s in-laws were demanding a four-wheeled vehicle. When I expressed my inability, they started torturing my daughter to put pressure on me”.
