Itโ€™s the day many families in India spend their lives dreaming of and saving for: their daughterโ€™s wedding. But behind the veil of the big Indian wedding lurks a hidden menace - dowry deaths.

In India, one woman dies every hour in a dowry-related case. Dowry is a social tradition where the families of Indian grooms can make endless financial demands of the brideโ€™s family.

In extreme circumstances, the newlywed bride can be murdered by her in-laws, or driven to commit suicide.

And now, 101 East reveals that this deadly tradition has arrived on Australian shores.
