Dowry deaths: an urban reality?

Here is a news report dealing with dowry-related suicides. 

The interesting aspect of this report is that it relates two events that took place in a city. 

Therefore dowry-related deaths are not exclusively a rural phenomenon but also happen in urban areas too.

It is all the more striking then, given that, as a rule, cities are supposed to be more modern than remote areas. So one may regard Indian cities as the origin or the source of strong contrasts in India.

What's your opinion on this?
