Husband had harassed Sahithya for dowry, alleges victims mother

The police said, three years back, Sahithya, a native of Ananthpura, Andhra Pradesh was married to Manjunath, a railway employee and the couple had a son.

The girl's mother has complained of dowry harassment by Manjunath and informed the cops that at the time of marriage they had paid Rs 4 lakh in cash and gold jewellery worth Rs 2 lakh.

Often, Manjunath was taunting and harassing Sahithya for money. Meanwhile, neighbours have given a conflicting version: They said the families had a strong belief in black magic and were in the habit of roping in people to perform various poojas.

For the last several months, Manjunath was of the opinion that Sahithya had brought bad luck to him and was a stumbling block for his success.

They also alleged that Manjunath had an illicit relationship and that might have worsened the situation.
