A 35-year-old woman in Delhi has alleged her father-in-law has been trying to force her into an illicit relationship with him, threatening her of dire consequences.
The woman, whose husband went missing in February this year, now wants to pursue LLB to teach her father-in-law a lesson.
"I have complained to Palam Colony police station and to National Commission for Women (NCW) but nothing has been done so far. He (her father-in-law) is still forcing me to develop a relationship with him. He has threatened me that if I don't spend a night with him, he will kill my two daughters and me," she said.
"As police and NCW have not responded to my pleas I want to teach him a lesson on my own. I am pursuing an LLB course from a Noida-based institute. Unfortunately I don't have money to deposit the fees for my final year," said added.
The woman married Aseem Kumar Badal in 2003. She claims that since the very beginning her husband and his father had been harassing her over dowry issues. The situation took a turn for the worse after she gave birth to her two daughters.
"Once he dragged me inside his bedroom saying that he would have sex with me, with or without my consent. I managed to flee from his clutches and locked myself into another room and called the police," she said.
