Notably, a 27-year-old chartered accountant has lodged a complaint against her 29-year-old husband accusing him of cheating her by hiding the fact that he is bald. She alleged that her husband’s family did not reveal that he is bald.
In the complaint, the woman said that her husband had been wearing a wig and if she knew he was bald she wouldn’t have married him. The woman claimed that she got to know about her husband’s baldness status a day after the marriage and when she reached out to her in-laws, they said it is a minor issue.
She also alleged that her in-laws were harassing her for more dowry and that her husband performed unnatural sexual acts on her.
“The main accused got married to the complainant, a chartered accountant, in September this year. The woman later discovered that he was bald and had been wearing a wig,” said Kailash Barve, senior inspector of Naya Nagar police station.
Her husband and in-laws have been booked under relevant sections of the IPC.
