Jalandhar, November 27
The Nawanshahr police have booked a man and his in-laws for allegedly torturing his wife and demanding dowry from her.
The couple had tied the knot in October last year. The woman, who is from Rahon, has alleged in her complaint, “My parents had to shell out Rs 15 lakh for the wedding ceremony. Besides, they also gifted gold ornaments to some of my husband’s relatives, despite our financial woes. But now, my in-laws want us (me and my parents) to gift gold ornaments to some other relatives, too.”
She has also alleged that her husband had vowed to relocate to England with her at his expense. But she rued that he never took her abroad.
Accusing her husband and her in-laws of mental harassment, she said, “Each time I asked my in-laws about our plans to move to England, they mocked me by saying that there are several other girls out there with a higher IELTS score than me who would be willing to marry my husband.” She has also alleged that her husband used to thrash her.
The police have registered an FIR under Sections 406, 498-A, 420 and 120-B of the IPC.

The Tribune, now published from Chandigarh, started publication on February 2, 1881, in Lahore (now in Pakistan). It was started by Sardar Dyal Singh Majithia, a public-spirited philanthropist, and is run by a trust comprising four eminent persons as trustees.
The Tribune, the largest selling English daily in North India, publishes news and views without any bias or prejudice of any kind. Restraint and moderation, rather than agitational language and partisanship, are the hallmarks of the paper. It is an independent newspaper in the real sense of the term.
The Tribune has two sister publications, Punjabi Tribune (in Punjabi) and Dainik Tribune (in Hindi).
