Bhubaneswar, Jan 27 :

The city Mahila police today arrested an Indian Army officer on charges of torturing his wife for her family’s failure to meet his demand for more dowry.

According to Mahila police, Lieutenant Colonel Pradip Kumar Kar serving in Indian Army in Punjab has been staying with his wife Monalisa Kar, a six-year daughter and a four-year old son at the Housing Board Colony in Baramunda here for the last 10 years.

Acting on a complaint report of dowry harassment filed by Monalisa at the Mahila police station on Sunday night, the Army officer was forwarded to a local court today following  his arrest by the Mahila police.

The accused has been booked under sections 498 (A) and 34 of the IPC.

In her complaint report, Monalisa had stated that her husband has been physically assaulting her for quite some time for failing to meet his demand for more dowry. But on Sunday night he crossed all limits by throwing her out of the house.

“Acting on Monalisa’s complaint, a Mahila police steam raided Pradip’s house and arrested him,” said the Mahila police

  1. IF A FALSE CASE IS LODGED AGAINST HUSBAND AND THE PROVISIONS OF THE LAW ARE MISUSED WHAT ARE THE PROVISIONS AVAILABLE TO RESTRICT SUCH COMPLAINTS.

    FATHER OF MR. PRADIP KAR EXPIRED ON 22.01.2013 I.E. ON LAST WEDNESDAY. IS IT POSSIBLE FOR ANY PERSON TO ASSAULT HIS WIFE AND CREATE DISTURBANCES IN HIS FAMILY WHEN THE FAMILY IS ALREADY DISTURBED?

    THE ONLY SON OF THE FAMILY MR. PRADIP KAR HAS BEEN ARRESTED WHEN HE WAS PERFORMING LAST RITES OF HIS FATHER. AFTER HIS ARREST PERFORMANCE OF THE RITUALS AS PER HINDU RELIGION HAS BEEN SERIOUSLY AFFECTED. WHETHER IT IS NOT VIOLATION OF HUMAN RIGHTS. IS IT POSSIBLE FOR THE CONCERNED DEPARTMENTS TO NOT ALLOW MR. KAR TO PERFORM THESE RITES.
