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.
