SP, Begusarai (Bihar): Investigate My Sister's #Dowrydeath and Punish the Culprits


My sister Pushpam was tortured, burnt, beaten and killed in front of her sonbecause we couldn’t pay the dowry that her in-laws demanded.

Twelve years ago, Pushpam got married to the Kumar Rai family in Bihar. Soon after her wedding, her husband and in-laws started demanding money as dowry.

On 11th May this year, as her five-year-old son watched, they brutally beat and murdered her because they did not get the money that they demanded. 

We immediately filed an FIR at the local police station. Shockingly, the police failed to take action and asked us to compromise if we wanted this case to go in our favour. The culprits have not been arrested yet. 

My nephew talks about his mother’s death everyday. I want justice for my sister. But as a brother who couldn’t do anything to save his sister, I also want to ensure that no woman ever suffers her plight in my district Begusarai in Bihar. 

Thats why I started a petition on Change.org telling the Begusarai Superintendent of Police (SP), Ms. Harpreet Kaur to immediately start an investigation into my sister's death so that the guilty can be punished.

As the SP, it is Ms. Kaur’s duty to ensure that such acts of violence against women don’t occur in Begusarai district again. 

Dowry has been a evil in our country for many years, but I want to end this practice in Begusarai and I can’t do this without your support.

Please sign my petition and forward it to your friends and family. We need as much support as we can get to ensure justice for my sister Pushpam and to end the practice of dowry in Begusarai. 

Looking forward to your support,

Uttam Kumar

Dear sir/maam,

As an Indian citizen I am ashamed to inform you that in your district a gruesome case of dowry death took place which has outraged many.
Pushpam was tortured, burnt, beaten and killed in front of her son because her family couldn’t pay the dowry that her in-laws demanded.
Twelve years ago, Pushpam got married to the Kumar Rai family in Bihar. Soon after her wedding, her husband and in-laws started demanding money as dowry.

On 11th May this year, as her five-year-old son watched, they brutally beat and murdered her because they did not get the money that they demanded.

The family immediately filed an FIR at the local police station. Shockingly, the police failed to take action and asked us to compromise if we wanted this case to go in our favour. The culprits have not been arrested yet.

Her son talks about his mother’s death everyday. I want justice for my sister. But as a brother who couldn’t do anything to save his sister, It's important to ensure that no woman ever suffers her plight in my district Begusarai in Bihar.

I urge you to immediately start an investigation into my sister's death so that the guilty can be punished.

As the SP, it is your duty to ensure that such acts of violence against women don’t occur in Begusarai district again.
Dowry has been a evil in our country for many years, but it's time to end this practice in Begusarai and for this it's essential that you play a crucial mail in this.

Please ensure justice for Pushpam and end the practice of dowry and domestic violence against women in Begusarai.

Looking forward to your support,
