Prayagraj, Uttar Pradesh:
A woman was found dead in Uttar Pradesh’s Prayagraj in a village on Saturday, a day before her marriage.
Deputy Commissioner of Police Abhishek Bharti said that the police received information that the body of Reena (20) was found in a field in the Dalapur village.
He said that the family members of the woman filed a complaint accusing the brother-in-law of the woman, Tara Chandra Bind, of killing her, adding that an FIR has been registered and police are trying to arrest him.
The officer said that it was found that the woman had allegedly eloped with the accused thrice in the past and had returned to her home only ten days ago.
