Rebuked for wearing fashionable dress, woman consumes poison


Bijnor (Uttar Pradesh), Nov 7 (IANS) A 21-year-old woman in Uttar Pradesh’s Bijnor district consumed poison after her elder sisters pulled her up for wearing a ‘fashionable’ dress.


The woman, Nandani was taken to a private hospital for treatment, where her condition is stated to be now out of danger.

According to reports, the incident took place on Tuesday night in Malakpur village here.

One of the Nandini’s relatives said she is the youngest of three sisters, all of whom work as tailors in the village. Nandani was fond of wearing stylish and modern dresses. Some villagers objected to it and complained to her elder sisters.

On Tuesday night, her elder sisters had an argument with her on this issue.

This angered Nandani so much that she consumed poison.

The police were not informed of the incident and no case has, therefore, been registered in the matter.
