police said on Sunday.

Surema (26) died soon after her husband Triveni beat
her brutally last night, they said.

The victim`s family members lodged an FIR in this
connection and alleged that she was killed as a demand for
dowry by Triveni was not met.

wife in a fit of rage after they had an altercation over the
issue of cooking, the police said.
