In a strange turn of events, the police on Tuesday picked up two family members a woman who is sitting on a dharna in front of the house of a man who allegedly ditched her after marriage.
The Baidyanathpur police today picked up the father and brother of Dimple Dash who has been sitting on dharna in front of the house of Pramod Sahu at Brahmanagar Lane 2 for the past two days. She alleged that Sahu's younger son Sumit, a doctor by profession, had married her in court on September 7, 2020.
Dimple alleged that after marriage she stayed with her in-laws for six months. However, they decided to send her back to her parental home on the pretext of solemnising the marriage as per Vedic rituals and now denying her entry into the house.
" We are into a relationship for three years before opting for court marriage. Eventually, my in-laws wanted to conduct our marriage as per Vedic rituals and gave me dates twice for the marriage. I have proof as we have arranged all the items required for the marriage. I will continue my agitation until my husband accepts me," said Dimple.
Though two days have passed since the woman has been on a dharna, none from the family of her in-laws was seen responding. As she threatened to commit suicide, if she was not accepted by her in-laws, the police stood guard to her.
Meanwhile, Berhampur SP said a case has been registered at the Mahila police station in this regard and a chargesheet has been filed. However, as a divorce case has been filed in court by the family of the youth, the case is sub-judice.
"As a case has already been registered and chargesheet filed and the matter is in court, whatever the direction the court gives, we will follow," said SP Pinak Mishra.
