MADURAI: A woman belonging to caste Hindu community who married a dalit man in February last year has told the Madurai bench of the Madras high court that she does not want to live with her husband. Police on Wednesday produced Gowthami of Salem before the division bench of Justice S Rajeswaran and T Mathivanan in connection with a habeas corpus petition.

Gowthami's husband, R Raghu, 24, of Shenoy Nagar in Madurai, moved the court, seeking reunion with his wife. Raghu, who is pursuing training as a health inspector in Madurai Medical College, registered his marriage with Gowthami with the sub-registrar's office in Royapuram in Chennai on February 3 last year.

He alleged that his father-in-law and brother-in-law had recently confined his kin and tortured them. Following complaint, the couple was taken to a police station for interrogation in March this year. He alleged that police threatened him to leave his wife. Following this, Raghu moved the high court. The court permitted the woman to go with her parents.

Taking the matter to the higher officials' knowledge, representations were sent to the officials on May 29. But, there was no action on their part.

Following it, he had filed habeas corpus petition through his counsel A Rajini before the Madras high court Bench against seeking custody of his wife.

When the matter was listed recently, the police was ordered to produce the concern woman before the court on June 26.

Accordingly, when the matter came up before the division bench consisted of Justices S Rajeswaran and T Mathivanan on Wednesday, the woman was produced by the police.

The bench enquired both husband and wife separately, during which the woman told the court about her wish to live with her parents and she did not want to go with her husband.

Besides, the woman's counsel M Natarajan also told the court that divorce petition has been filed by the woman before the concern court.

It is also noted that police security was tightened at the outside the court hall to prevent any untoward incident as the relatives of both sides, gathered.
