Bride alleges burned at hands to test if she is adulterous !!

Things began to get uglier as she decided, on the advice of a quack, to take her fire-test or "agni-pariksha".

It was an arranged marriage that took place in holy city of Mathura.

But the bride Sweta (name changed) began getting accusations from her mother-in-law that she is indulging in adultery.

Things began to get uglier as she decided, on the advice of a quack, to take her fire-test or “agni-pariksha”.

It was then that she was subjected to a burning log of firewood on her palms.

Showing her badly burnt hands, Sweta said that her in-laws used to thrash and falsely accuse her of adultery.

Sharing another chilling incident, she said her husband once cut her hand with a knife in her sleep.

She has now filed a police complaint against her mother-in-law and six others for burning her hands, physical assault and harassment over dowry.

The police have initiated an investigation.
