BENGALURU: A 28-year-old woman techie has filed a case of sexual harassment against her father-in-law at Basavanagudi women’s police station. 


A senior police officer said the complainant Radhika (name changed), a resident of Basavanagudi, approached the police on Monday and stated in her complaint that she was married to one Raghunandan, also a techie, a year ago.


Immediately after the marriage he left for the US on work and asked Radhika to stay with his parents in Indiranagar. But a few months later, her father-in-law Venkatapathy started misbehaving with her by touching her inappropriately. 


She told Raghunandan about this and asked him to take her with him to the US. But Raghunandan told her that he would take her with him only if she brought dowry. Radhika then got ornaments from her parents and moved to the US. Later, Venkatapathy and his wife also moved to the US and she was again sexually harassed by the father-in-law.


This time, when she complained about this to Raghunandan, he asked her to co-operate with his father. Even her mother-in-law was in support of her husband and son despite knowing what was going on, police said. 


Upset, Radhika decided to return to India and filed a case.

A police officer said that an FIR has been registered and the case is being transferred to Halasuru Gate women’s police station. The accused will be taken into custody soon, police said.
