Death of differently abled woman and daughter: Husband arrested

Pathanamthitta: Days after the death of a differently-abled woman and her daughter, police arrested the woman's husband here on Tuesday.

The accused is identified as Vineeth, a native of Edayaranmula. His Shyama, and daughter Adhi Shree (3) who suffered severe burns breathed their last at the hospital last week.

The incident happened on May 12. Shyama and her daughter were found with severe burns inside their house. Both succumbed to injuries while undergoing treatment at the hospital.

Following this, Shyama's father lodged a complaint before the police suspecting foul play. He added that Vineeth approached him several times demanding money after the marriage.

Vineeth and her parents absconded soon after a complaint was lodged before the police. Following this, the police intensified the probe and nabbed him after learning that he had returned to his native place. He was booked under IPC 304 for dowry abuse and IPC 306 for incitement to suicide. Meantime, the police are yet to nab Vineeth's parents.
