stomach and medicine saying the foetus will convert to a male child and collected Rs 20,000," the police said.

On one occassion when she refused to meet the practicioner, her father-in-law allegedly slammed her against a wall.After her marriage in August last year, the woman's family had paid Rs 5 lakh as dowry, police said.
