A 27-year-old woman was reduced to a "bag of a skeleton" and has died allegedly due to starvation enforced by her husband and mother-in-law for dowry, police said Saturday, in a case that has caused a public outrage.
Thushara, a native of Karunagappally near here, was denied proper food for days and survived only on soaked rice and sugar syrup before she breathed her last at a government hospital here, police said, quoting the postmortem report and neighbours.
