A 38-year-old dentist has been accused of dowry harassment by his  doctor-wife. The dentist M Ramasamy was questioned by the police after his  wife  Chandrakala, 35, a doctor at Egmore Government Children’s Hospital, lodged a complaint that Ramasamy has been pestering her for dowry though 100 sovereigns were given during the time of their wedding.

The couple had been married for 10 years and has two children,   police said. The couple was supposedly staying separate for the last few years. Based on the complaint, the police booked Ramasamy on Tuesday but they did not produce him before a court till the evening.

“Chandrakala lodged a complaint that her husband had forged her signature and took a loan of Rs 28 lakh from a bank. She came to know about this only after receiving a notice from the bank. She also said  that Ramasamy was trying to force her to bring more jewels and cash,” said a police officer.

The police have registered a case under Sections 498 A (husband or relative of husband of a woman subjecting her to cruelty), 465 (punishment for forgery) and 468 (forgery for purpose of cheating) of the IPC. Further Investigation is on.
