US na­tional mar­ried to TN man stranded; res­cued and sent back

Sunday Express - - CHENNAI -

A 26-year-old na­tive of United States who was found stranded at Kancheep­u­ram was on Thurs­day res­cued and sent back to her na­tive on Fri­day night.

The po­lice said, Rosie (26) (name changed) had mar­ried a city-based soft­ware en­gi­neer. “It seems the woman and her hus­band were ad­dicted to al­co­hol. Dis­sat­is­fied with her be­hav­iour and fam­ily dis­putes that arose later, her hus­band and his mother are said to have de­serted the woman at Kancheep­u­ram and fled the city as well.”

On Thurs­day, based on in­for­ma­tion, Kanchipu­ram Taluk po­lice rushed to Vel­lai Gate and res­cued Rosie.

She was found speak­ing with some au­torick­shaw driv­ers. “The woman was taken for en­quiry, but she was in ine­bri­ated state and hence we sent her to a home at Kanathur,” a po­lice of­fi­cer said.

She un­der­went med­i­cal ex­am­i­na­tion and there were no signs of sex­ual abuse or rape, said the po­lice. When po­lice reached the soft­ware en­gi­neer’s house, it was locked and neigh­bours said the fam­ily had shifted a week ago.

The in­for­ma­tion was passed on to the US con­sular of­fice in Chen­nai and a team vis­ited the woman and told po­lice that she was men­tally ill.

She was shifted to US on Fri­day night. The po­lice are try­ing to trace her hus­band with de­tails from his of­fice.

Mean­while, Kancheep­u­ram po­lice per­son­nel en­quired some au­torick­shaw driv­ers, who spot­ted the woman roam­ing un­der the in­flu­ence of al­co­hol, to know who bought her drinks in the town.

They also in­quired if the woman her­self had boarded a bus to reach Kancheep­u­ram, where she was stranded or her hus­band dumped her.
