vismaya

KOLLAM: The Additional Sessions Court, Kollam will pronounce verdict today in the dowry-related death of 24-year old Vismaya, an Ayurveda medical student. She committed suicide due to torture from her husband Kiran Kumar, an Assistant Motor vehicle Inspector demanding dowry. He has been booked under various IPC sections on offenses of dowry death, dowry harassment, abetment to suicide, voluntarily causing harm and criminal intimidation. The prosecution alleges that the torture was over a car given as dowry.

Vismaya was found hanging at Kiran's house in Sasthamkotta on June 21 last year. Kiran was later dismissed from service. The investigation was completed within 90 days under the supervision of IG Harshita Atalloori and the chargesheet was filed on September 10. The trial began on January 10 and was completed on May 18. The apex court had granted bail to Kiran a month ago as the trial was nearing completion.
