Sravanthi, daughter of Jamuna, approached the women’s police station at Basheerbagh and lodged a complaint against her husband Rahul Reddy and in-laws alleging they had subjected her to mental and physical torture.
In her complaint, she alleged that ever since her marriage, the trio (mother-n-law, fathr-in-law, and husband) had been torturing her physically and mentally, apart from demanding additional dowry.
A case was registered under Sections 498 (A) IPC (cruelty to wife by husband or relatives), 506 (criminal intimidation) IPC and sections 4 and 6 of the Dowry Prohibition Act. Sravanti’s father-in-law and mother-in-law were arrested while Rahul evaded the police.
