A man along with his parents was today sentenced to seven years in prison by a local court in a three-year-old dowry death case.
Additional Session Judge J S Bhinder, while observing that, "perpetrators of crime against women did not deserve any leniency", sent Lakhwinder, his mother Kuldip Kaur and father Amarjit Singh to prison and also slapped a fine of Rs 20,000 each.
Rajwinder Kaur, a native of Bhulath in Kapurthala district, was found dead in her in-law's house in Salempur village of Tanda on November 22, 2009, exactly two years after her marriage, prosecution said.
Her parents alleged that she was being harassed for dowry since marriage.
A case was registered against Lakhwinder and his parents on the complaint of Rajwinder's mother, the prosecution said.
