Woman alleges torture by hubby, rape by brother-in-law

Nagpur: A 23-year-old woman has lodged a complaint against husband Sarvjeet Tiwari, his brothers Pradeep, Rajesh and their sister Reena that they mentally and physically tortured her for the last three years and demanded she bring cash from her parents. She also claimed to have been raped by brother-in-law Rajesh.

Wadi police have slapped a case of rape, threatening, outraging modesty of a woman and other charges against Sarvjeet, Pradeep, Rajesh and Reena following the complaint. It is learnt that the survivor has claimed that she was being harrased since her marriage in 2015.

Police have also charged the four under Dowry Prohibition Act. The woman complained about being sexually exploited by elder brother-in-law Rajesh when she declined his demands. Rajesh and others allegedly also posted the survivor’s explicit photographs on social media when she began protesting their behaviour.

Police said a case was registered following a prolonged probe but no arrest has been made yet.
