Investigating officer, PSI Arun Sugaonkar informed, “The woman was married to Amit Sheriyar in 2008 and started staying with her husband and in-laws’ house in Dahisar. According to her complaint, soon after marriage, her husband and in-laws started demanding dowry and allegedly threatened her kill her if she did not bring Rs 2 lakh cash, a two-wheeler and a gold chain from her parents.

When, she turned down their demands, she was allegedly subjected to physical and mental abuse. Hence, unable to bear the agony, she left her husband’s house and for the past one year she was staying at her father’s house in Juhugaon.

However, in October 2010, she lodged a complaint against her husband and in-laws at Vashi police station. But, whenever we visited their house in Dahisar, we found the house locked. Finally, on January 8, in the morning the three in-laws were arrested from their residence.
