Yet another woman sits on dharna in front of father-in-law’s house for justice in Odisha
Berhampur: Following the footstep of Tapaswini Dash, who sat on agitation in front of her father-in-law’s house at Bramhanagar in Berhampur demanding acceptance as Dr. Sumit Sahu’s wife and entry into the house recently, yet another woman sat on dharna in front of her father-in-law’s house for justice. The incident has been reported from Ambapur village under Golanthara Police station limits of Ganjam district in Odisha.
The woman, who has been identified as Rashmita Kumari Raoul, alleged that she had married to one Jitendra Muni of Podapali village in 2014. However, some years later, her in-laws demanded more dowry and it was given to them as per their demands.
Both Rashmita and Jitendra lived together in a rented house following a family dispute. However, Rashmita claimed that Jitendra’s family members are now planning to give her in marriage to another person.
Protesting their plans, she is now sitting on a dharna with the help of social worker Pramila Tripathy, who helped Tapaswini to get justice.
Rashmita also alleged that despite filing a written complaint at the local police station, the police are not taking any action. On the other hand, the Orissa High Court has put a stay order on the divorce petition filed by her husband.
While Rashmita is working as a teacher, Jitendra is a cop.
