Ms Soni's brother told the police that she had complained to her mother of harassment and torture by Badrinath, the sub-inspector said.
Ms Soni had abandoned her husband and two kids in Uttar Pradesh and returned to his brother's house in Vigyan Nagar area here two years ago. About one-and-a-half year back, she moved in with Badrinath, Mr Rao added.
