A 28-year-old woman has approached the Basavanagudi police in Karnataka’s Bengaluru, alleging that she was sexually harassed by her father-in-law.
The woman claimed in her complaint that her father-in-law sexually harassed her during her stay with her husband in the UK, reports The Times of India.
She has also reportedly accused her husband and mother-in-law of supporting the accused.
The report states that the woman who hails from Tumakuru, got married to a software engineer a year ago. Though he had promised to take her with him to the UK, he did not do so, states the report.
When the woman demanded to be taken to the UK to live with her husband, he allegedly asked her to bring jewellery and Rs 10 lakh in cash from her parents.
Later in December last year, the woman flew to UK on her own, without informing her husband. Her husband who was "upset when he received her at the airport" soon got his parents to the UK. It is there that her father-in-law began to sexually harass her, the woman said in her complaint.
When she complained to her husband, he reportedly ignored it and instead asked her to "adjust".
According to a Deccan Chronicle report, the case is likely to be transferred to Halasuru Gate all women's police station.
