Kerala Governor joins fast against dowry

Thiruvananthapuram: Kerala Governor Arif Mohammed Khan has started his fast against dowry on Wednesday. Gandhian organizations are organizing the 'fast against dowry', says Governor's office.

Also, the Governor would attend the prayer meeting to be held from 4.30 pm as per Covid protocol at Gandhi Bhavan, Thycaud, Thiruvnanthapuram.

The death of a 24-year-old Ayurveda doctor in Kerala’s Kollam district shook the conscience of the state. The victim, Vismaya V Nair, was found dead days after she shared on WhatsApp chats with close relatives alleged torture by her husband.

A day after the suspected suicide, police arrested her husband on charges relating to dowry death.

The Governor had recently visited the house of one of the dowry victims to meet her family. He had also urged society to take a stand against dowry, according to reports.
