SI held for dowry harassment
Hyderabad: An SI was arrested on Monday for domestic violence and dowry harassment by Malkajgiri police. Laxma Reddy was serving as SI at Sangareddy. He had married one Jyothi around two years back and had been harassing her since then. “I recently went to my mother’s place for delivery and on returning he started harassing me saying that he does not want me and that he had found someone and wants me to leave him,” said Jyothi Reddy. “He tried to murder me several times. My in-laws said they will kill me and that their son has a better dowry offer elsewhere and that I should leave with my son,” added Jyothi. Malkajgiri inspector S. Janaki Reddy said they received a complaint against him in November 2016 and had counselled the couple at the Bharosa Center in Kushaiguda in vain. On Monday, police arrested Laxma Reddy for dowry harassment and violence.
