Dowry abuse: Woman stages sit-in dharna
In a bid to make police act on a dowry harassment complaint filed by her, a 21-year-old woman staged a sit-in protest in front of the City Police Office on Saturday.
According to sources, Soudha Bebe, a resident of Pillayarpuram, staged the protest demanding that the police investigate on her complaint against her husband and in-laws for harassing her demanding dowry.
According to police, Soudha was married to one Asraf Ali (27), a painter, last month. However, Asraf and his family even after taking `1 lakh and 4.5 sovereign gold were allegedly harassing her demanding more.
Soudha alleged that she had earlier lodged a complaint with the AWPS but no action was taken on it.
