THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: The issue of dowry has become a hot topic in the state ever since the death of Sasthamkotta native Vismaya who died at her husband's house. Police have registered a case against Vismaya's husband Kiran Kumar, a government employee in the incident. In this context, a Facebook post shared by former Chief Minister Oommen Chandy in 2014 has also caught the attention of social media users. He had made it clear in the post that all government employees who are going to get married should give an affidavit to the head of their department that they have not received dowry after marriage.


'All government employees who are going to get married should give the head of their department an affidavit that they have not received dowry after marriage. This affidavit must be signed by the wife, father, and wife's father. It is mandatory and this document falls under the purview of the Dowry Prohibition Act,' the post read.
