Woman Locked Up in Bathroom for Three Years Over Dowry Demand

Woman Locked Up in Bathroom for Three Years Over Dowry Demand

A 25-year-old married woman was allegedly kept locked in a bathroom in Bihar, india for the last three years by her husband and in-laws after she could not meet their dowry demands. Station House Officer Seema Kumari found her in tattered clothes, unkempt dry hair and with overgrown nails.
“The woman revealed that she was thrown into the bathroom and locked there. She was not allowed to see her child, and given leftover food irregularly. It was as if her in-laws were seeking revenge for not bringing ample dowry and giving birth to a girl child,” the Ms Kumari said.

The woman was rescued after much effort by her father Shyam Sundar Singh, who had complained to Darbhanga Senior Superintendent of Police Kumar Ekle, who in turn instructed the woman inspector to pursue the case immediately.

The police has registered an FIR against the women’s husband, father-in-law Dhirendra Singh and mother-in-law Indra Devi. They have been taken into custody.
