A Congress corporator in Bhiwandi Nizampur City Municipal Corporation, along with three others, was Saturday booked for allegedly harassing his daughter-in-law for dowry.
The police have booked corporator Siddheshwar Kammurti (60), his wife Kaveri (55) and sons Sanket (31) and Shrikant (28). The case was registered following a complaint filed by Shrikant’s 25-year-old wife. “In her complaint, the woman, who hails from Mangaluru, said that she had tied the knot with Shrikant last February in Bhiwandi. However, after a few months, the relationship between them soured,” said an officer from Bhiwandi police.
“The complainant has alleged that her husband and in-laws started demanding money from her parents, and tortured her physically and mentally, due to which she had to abort her child,” the officer added.
