Hyderabad: Malakpet Police in Hyderabad city have rubbished the claim of a Hyderabad woman that they had harassed her in the name of enquiry. The woman had released a video where she was seen crying and speaking about the alleged harassment by the police, which went viral.
The woman in question, Priyadarshini(30) who belonged to Adikmet fell in love with Santosh(33) of Jiyaguda,who belonged to a different caste. They got married in 2005 and had a boy child.
After a few years, they had frequent disputes and one day got into an argument. In August this year, Priyadarshini filed a complaint against her husband at Nallakunta Police station and Santosh was arrested on September 2. He was later released on bail on the 6th. While granting bail the court also put a condition on him that he should not meet his wife.
Getting to know that he was in his parents' house in Moosarambagh after his release, she went there. She demanded that he return to the marital home, and started harassing her in-laws also. On the same day, her brother-in-law Satish filed a police complaint against her in Malakpet police station. A case vide Cr.No. 245/19; u/s 341; 448; 506; r/w 34 IPC was registered based on his complaint.
As part of the investigation, Sector SI Srinu Nayak spoke to Santosh and came to know that she had filed a SC ST Atrocity case against Santosh. The SI spoke to Priyadarshini and told her to stay away from husband and leave the in laws house.
As a counter defence, she made a video where Priyadarshini alleged that the police (SI Srinu Nayak) harassed her in the name of inquiry and posted it on WhatsApp, which went viral.
Malakpet ACP Sudarshan and Inspector KV Subba Rao responded to the video and said the allegations made by her had no truth in them.
It is reported that in June, another case of trespass was registered against Priyadarshini in Petbashirabad Police Station for trespassing into her sister-in-law’s house and she was known to create disputes in the family. The video she released was just to save herself from further trouble and malign the police.
