3. The factual matrix of the present case is that the marriage was
solemnized between the petitioner no.1 and respondent no.2 on
29.10.2009 according to Hindu rites and customs. It is alleged that
soon after the marriage, the in-laws of the complainant started
harassing and taunting her for dowry and cash. The husband of the
complainant not only failed to prevent his parents from subjecting her
to harassment, but also joined them in the name of ‘family honour’.
The said harassment escalated to the level of physical assaults on
many occasions, bar on the complainant’s parents visiting her at the
matrimonial home, her physical confinement at home, bar on her
communicating with her relatives and friends etc. It is the case of the
complainant that on 01.04.2011, she ran away from the matrimonial
home to save her life.
