Another case of dowry harassment is reported from New Delhi, where a pregnant woman was beaten by her in laws and husband as she could not bring more money to her husband house. As per the pictures shown on the television, her face was badly bruised and the girl was constantly crying. And worse she was pregnant and was hit on her stomach.
The woman in question is Pawandeep, who was married to Sandeep Singh from Pitampura, New Delhi on June 29 2008. As per Pawandeep, since the day she was married she was harassed by her in laws for not bringing enough dowry. Sandeep Singh was furious about the fact that he demanded Honda Accord Car and he was given only Honda City Car. Further the family wanted Silver utensils. And when Pawadeep was not able to meet their demands, they started beating her black and blue and that’s where she reported the matter to her family.
The family of Pawandeep has vowed that they will ensure that Sandeep Singh and his family get severe punishment for barbaric act. Beating a pregnant woman and that too your own wife, your own daughter-in-law is nothing less than Shame and the culprits should be punished.
Police were reluctant to register a case whoever with the intervention of media and news channel, the police registered FIR and husband Sandeep Singh is detained.
If Sandeep Singh and his family are found guilty, they should be really given the most severe punishment so that others learn a lesson.
Further, let me further say this – The parents of Pawandeep are to be blamed as well. Why on first place did they agree to such guy who demands car and other gifts? Was your girl less educated or a burden that you had to give money to get her married?
To all parents – If you pay once, you have to pay always and if you cannot meet their demands the girl is bound to suffer and sometimes might be fatal. Remember you have spent the same amount of money in bringing your child and she will continue to serve her in laws apart from doing job. Paying a single penny as so called gifts or demands is WRONG, is an offence. Do not support dowry, bring the culprits in the limelight so that they feel ashamed of their fact! Stop dowry, stop trading marriages!
