Tripura: Refuted as wife, woman stages sit-in in front of in-laws’ residence

An ill-fated woman, who had been refused by her husband whom she tied the nuptial knot a year back, staged a sit-in demonstration before the residence of her in-laws demanding justice in Tripura.

It may sound hilarious, but according to the woman, she was allegedly forced to leave her husband and when after repeated attempts she could not manage to get her rights back, she took this drastic step seeking justice.  

The woman—Swapna Nath who hailed from Dgramangar’s Radhapur area of the North Tripura district got married to Kalpajyoti Nath after at least one year the both developed love relations. Both of them used to stay at Banglaore and all of sudden her husband left her and returned his own house and snapped all her contacts with her. The girl alleged she was even allured of huge money by the in-laws to leave her husband in Tripura.

“When I reached the Airport, I had been told that I need to follow the quarantine protocols. I reached the police station and gave the address of my in-laws. They directed me to go there and to see whether they accept me or not. I waited for six hours but no response came up. I had gone to the police repeatedly and even approached the local Panchayat but my in-laws kept on deferring the date of the meeting and tried to bribe me so that I leave my husband”, the girl alleged in Tripura.

She also alleged that her in-laws were against their marriage and somehow convinced her husband to leave her. She said that she would even go to the extreme point to get her rights back.
