Berhampur, October 14 : A 21-year old woman was allegedly strangled to death by her husband and in-laws at Jamadeipur village in Odisha's Ganjam district over dowry demand, police said on Friday.

Police yesterday recovered the body of Kalpana Gouda from her in-law's house and subsequently arrested her husband, Mithun Gouda, said Inspector In-Charge of Kabisuryanagar police station D R Patnaik.
