"The woman, Rama Kumwar, after marrying Prakash Sevak of another community had eloped from her village Pachlasa in Dungarpur district around eight years ago," a police official told IANS on Sunday.

"After living somewhere else for all these years she returned to her village along with her three-year-old daughter to meet her family and in-laws."

"Her brother Laxman Singh and other relatives who were still angry with her (Rama Kumwar), dragged her out of my house. They beat her up badly and burnt her alive. To destroy evidence, they cremated her late in the evening," Kalavati, mother-in-law of Rama Kunwar, said in her police complaint.

Kalavati also claimed to have been beaten up badly when she tried to save Rama Kumwar. "We have registered a case on her complaint and investigations are going on," the official said.

"We have so far arrested seven people including her brother Laxman Singh," he added.
