According to Indian media, police claimed that 26-year-old Rushi Kumar, who is a software engineer, allegedly killed his wife Harika Kumar for not clearing medical entrance exams in an area of LB Nagar's Rock Town Colony.
As per reports, the accused on Sunday night informed Harika's mother that her daughter had committed suicide.
After the incident, the deceased's parent lodged a complaint with LB Nagar Police Station accusing their son-in-law and his family of committing planned murder and harassment for dowry.
The accused has claimed that his wife had set herself on fire, the police said, adding that the case appeared to be a murder after visiting the spot.
Harika's parents revealed before the police that Kumar had been threatening her daughter with divorce for not passing the medical entrance exams.
