KOCHI: The Adalat organised by Kerala Women’s Commission here on Wednesday witnessed as many as many as 151 complaints, including a grievance from a girl that her parents were forcing her to seek divorce, a woman’s complaint that her husband was living off the money earned from disposing of her property and a petition from a lady that she had been sexually exploited by a man, who later reneged on his promise to marry her.

Women.jpgAccording to an official release, 63 out of the 151 complaints  were settled. Police report has been sought in 37 cases and in six cases RDOs have been asked to submit their reports. In five cases counselling had been suggested while in 40 cases the parties were called for the next meeting.

In the case of  the girl, who got married in 2013, her parents  took away their daughter’s gold, documents of the car and educational certificates before forcing their daughter to end the marriage.

They also filed a complaint against their son-in-law. However, the issue was amicably settled at the Adalat after the documents were returned.

And  one of the other cases taken up by the Commission on Wednesday involved a  woman from Perumbavoor, who complained that her husband was refusing to go to work and was living with the proceeds received after selling off the land. The 8-acre land has now come down to 2acres, the woman complained.

The Commission sent the couple for counselling. In the case, where a woman complained that she was sexually abused by a person, who promised to marry her, the case was withdrawn after the respondent agreed to marry the lady, the release said.
