On Wednesday, Aruna receiveds a call from her husband when he demanded that she get the money. Unable to bear the harassment, a depressed Aruna hanged herself to death at Amalapuram, said CI Sri Rama Koteswara Rao.

The victim's parents alleged that their daughter died after being repeatedly harassed for dowry and held the entire family responsible for Arunadevi's suicide.
