As a woman walked into Anaithhthu PenkaL kaaval nilaiyam with a complaint that, her matrimonial home is harassing her for more dowry, police filed a dowry harassment case and put father, mother and their son in jail.
Prasad Kumar (36) has married Sheela (28). The couple live along with Prasad Kumar’s father Thimmaraayan (61) and mother Lalitha. The family live in Rayakottai HUDCO.
According to Sheela, her husband and his parents harassed her for more dowry. She lodged a police complaint and police have arrested all the three who have been accused by Sheela.
Most of the dowry harassment cases filed by women are found and proved to be fake in courts. Courts on several occasions have condemned police for arresting members without verifying the validity of the complaints. Only time and legal system has to tell, whether Prasad harassed his wife or Sheela harassed her husband.
