Marriage based on virtual chit- chat collapses
Romancing ‘virtually’ on the internet finally proved tragic for a couple who decided to marry after 10 months of chit-chat on the net.
Geetu and Nitin Guru had wed after a 10-month virtual relationship, but their union has not even lasted two years.
After more than three months of counselling, the woman cell of the local police station registered a case in a dowry- related complaint on Thursday. As things panned out, Geetu’s in-laws including her husband, started torturing her for dowry just a week after marriage.
A case has been registered against his husband Nitin Guru of Sundar Nagar, father-in-law Paramjit Guru, mother-in-law Meenu, sister-in-law Vanika and her husband Raman.
The police arrested Paramjit Guru and Meenu Guru on CASE REGISTERED AGAINST IN-LAWS AFTER THREE MONTHS OF COUNSELING Thursday and produced them before court. The court has sent Meenu to judicial remand, while Paramjit Guru has been remanded in police custody for a day.
Eventually, Geetu started living in a rented accommodation near Domoria Bridge.
“My in-laws threw me out of the house. Shocked at the development, my father passed away after a cardiac arrest in December 2011 at SPS Apollo Hospital, Ludhiana,” said Geetu.
“I was not allowed to meet my husband. A divorce case was also filed. Finally, I complained to the police commissioner and filed an application against inlaws,” she added.
