Lucknow, May 31

The daughter of a prominent businessman in Lucknow has lodged a complaint with the police that her husband, mother-in-law and brother-in-law had been torturing her and demanding a dowry of Rs 30 crore.

DCP Central Zone, Aparna Rajat Kaushik, said an FIR had been registered on the complaint of the victim.

The victim has alleged that she was being harassed for more dowry even though her parents gave costly gifts and organised a grand wedding in 2010.

"They used to taunt me saying it was of no use marrying into such a prominent family as they got only simple dowry," she alleged and added that she was beaten up for opposing them.

The victim said she was forced to ask her maternal uncle to arrange a contract for her husband and she did it to save her marriage.

"My maternal uncle arranged a contract for my husband who earned Rs 4 crore though the business. But they did not stop beating me. One day my mother-in-law slapped me and dragged me by my hair while my husband pushed me down on the ground," the victim alleged.

The police said the matter is being investigated.
