Beaten black and blue? A tale of horror
Kiran was unhappy with the car he got as a part of his dowry
Vismaya's father has claimed that as a part of his daughter's dowry, he had given Kiran Kumar 800 grams of gold, some property, and a Toyota Yaris car. But not happy with the car, Kiran demanded money in exchange of it. But because he was told that this wasn't possible, he allegedly fought and abused Vismaya daily.
