Wife demands dowry; Husband goes to court against wife

Udupi: In a bizzare incident which came to light, a husband has approached the court complaining about dowry harassment against his wife.

Abdul Kudrus Khaji from Mallar is the complainant. He has complained that his wife Shabana Banu Khaji has been harassing him demanding to bring more dowry.

As per the complaint, the couple had married in 2011 which was a second marriage for each of them. Abdul had given Shabana jewellery worth Rs 25 lakhs during the wedding. Thereafter Shabana had allegedly demanded for a sum of Rs 28 lakhs, which Abdul readily obliged to and paid her. Later Shabana is said to have demanded an additional Rs 25 lakhs from her husband.
