A woman residing in Ahmedabad’s Ghatlodia has lodged a complaint with the local police station accusing her husband of beating and berating her for being ‘fat, ‘dark’ and ‘ugly’. She also said that her husband left her because of the same. The woman,23, in her complaint with the police said that she got married to her husband, who was based in Mumbai’s Grant road in 2018 but soon after that, her -in-laws started berating her for her looks.
The woman in her complaint added that a few months after she got married, her in-laws started putting pressure on her and her family for dowry. When her family failed to come up with the money, the woman alleged that she was beat up frequently over petty issues, TOI reported.
The woman reportedly said that her husband used to taunt her regularly over her appearance.
“He used to tell me that his girlfriend was pretty, slim and fair. Whenever I protested, he used to beat me and his family members also used to provoke him to beat me,” she was quoted as saying.
The woman said that her husband and his family members also used to say that she would bring in ill luck because she didn’t have a brother and thus won’t be able to give birth to a boy. She said that they used to threaten her with dire consequences if she gave birth to a girl instead.
The woman has also alleged that her husband used to beat her up for not making good food. The local cops have filed the complaint and a probe will be conducted regarding the same.
