Hubby, In-laws Escape After Dowry Plaint

A dowry harassment case was filed against a mechanical engineer and his parents following a complaint from his wife  at the All Women Police Station (AWPS) in Villianur on Friday.   

According to the complaint filed by Komala (26),an MBA graduate, her husband Santosh Kumar (33),father-in-law Arumugham (62), and mother-in-law Malarkozhi (56) had beaten her up and thrown her out of the marital house demanding dowry. They had told her not to return unless she brings `5 lakh from her parents, who reside in Kottakuppam, adjoining Puducherry, for construction of a house.

Komala got married to Santhosh in 2011 and had given birth to twins eight months ago. Her parents had given 30 sovereigns of gold and `1.5 lakh cash to the groom's family at the time of marriage.

Soon after the marriage, there had been persistent demands from her husband and in-laws to get money from her parents. She was subjected to continuous assault and in one such incident, she was hospitalised. After the incident, she had complained to the local fishermen panchayat and subsequently at the AWPS which led to police counselling the husband and in-laws and sorting out things.

However, after she gave birth to twins, the situation again came back to square one. She  was asked to get `5 lakh from her home and  thrown out of her house, with an ultimatum that she shouldn't return unless she has the money.

After the incident, she filed a complaint with the All Women Police Station in Villianur. Police registered a case under Dowry Prohibition Act and under various sections of IPC for harassment and assault, said AWPS sub inspector Thilagrani. Police said they are on the lookout of the three.
