A probationary IPS officer posted as assistant superintendent of police at Valsad has filed a complaint of dowry harassment against her husband,who is deputy collector of Behror in Rajasthan.

Police said Sarojini Kumari,a 2011-batch IPS officer,married Narsingh Hajarilal,a Rajasthan Administrative Service officer,in June 2011. After she was posted in Gujarat a few months ago,her husband started demanding dowry and used abusive language to threaten her. He also wanted her to quit her job.

“Ours was love marriage. Even before our marriage,we had fights. But since we were in love,I tried my best to forgive and forget his misbehaviour. After marriage,he continued misbehaving with me and my family. He also used to assault me and did not want me to serve in Gujarat. On March 13,he called me late in night and used abusive language,threatening to kill me and my family,” Kumari told The Indian Express.

The police said that as evidence,Kumari had recorded the threatening calls she received from her husband and provided it to them.
