Two women allegedly took their lives by setting themselves on fire over dowry issues in two separate incidents here, police said today.

Sonu (30) was found burnt alive in her parents' house in Uttar Pradesh's Shamli district yesterday, police said.

It is suspected that she set herself ablaze because her in-laws tormented her for dowry, they said.

Sonu had filed a complaint of dowry harassment against her in laws four months ago, SHO OP Choudhry said.

The body of the victim was sent for post-mortem and a report is awaited, the SHO said, adding further investigation is underway.

In a separate incident, a 27-year-old woman allegedly also took her life by setting herself on fire in Uttar Pradesh's Jalalpur village, police said today.

A case has been registered against seven people including the victim's husband, Sunder, father-in-law, Kadam Singh, and mother-in-law, Champa Devi, they said.

A medical examination of the woman was conducted and the report was awaited, the police said.
