The Ludhiana police on Tuesday night registered a case of demand for dowry and unnatural sex against BRS Nagar-resident Manpreet Singh. Singh reportedly married the complainant,Avneet Kaur,in February. According to the complaint filed by Kaur,a Shastri Nagar resident,her husband and father-in-law,Amarjeet Singh,physically tortured her for not bringing sufficient dowry and forced her to get more money.
Kaur alleged that the accused began to physically assault her a few days after the marriage. Finding it hard to cope with the situation,Avneet reportedly filed a complaint against her husband and in-laws,nearly two-and-a-half months after the marriage.
Apart from the dowry act,the police also registered a case under Section 377 of the Indian Penal Code (unnatural offences) against the husband on the complaint of Kaur.
The accused are at large,but police are trying to nab them. Kaur has come back to her parents house.
