India says 1 woman killed every hour over dowry

An Indian
report says a woman dies every hour in disputes over how much her family has
paid in dowry to the groom for

her marriage.

The National
Crime Records Bureau says more than 8,200 women were killed across India in
such crimes last year even though Indian law prohibits the centuries-old custom
of giving or receiving dowries.   

Women’s
rights activists say dowry demands have increased with India’s economic growth.
 

At the same
time, thousands of Indian women are killed, often doused in gasoline and burned
to death, because the groom or his family felt the dowry was inadequate.  

Activists
and police said Tuesday that loopholes in dowry prevention laws, delays in
prosecution and low conviction rates have led to a steady rise in dowry related
crimes.
