Hyderabad: Meerpet police arrested a cab driver on Wednesday for abetting the suicide of his wife. Kadari Yadaiah, 38, was reportedly harassing his wife Anitha, 30, for dowry since their marriage 12 years ago.
“On May 15, after a quarrel with her husband, Anitha allegedly consumed bathroom acid and died in the house,” said DCP, LB Nagar, M. Venkateshwara Rao. Yadaiah was arrested by the Meerpet police on Wednesday.
