Puri: A 32-year-old woman has lodged an FIR at Pipili Police Station in Puri alleging she was sexually harassed by her father-in-law. She has also produced a video recording as evidence to support her claim.

The woman in the complaint has claimed that her father-in-law, who is a retired Railway Police personnel, has been sexually harassing her for the last few years.

She has also accused her in-laws of dowry harassment and alleged that her brother-in-law,  despite being Inspector-In-Charge (IIC) of a police station in Odisha, also ignored her accusation.

Reportedly, the woman who hails from Pipili had married into a family at Kumbharpada in Puri district. It has been eight years she is being harassed by her in-laws in absence of her husband.

As there was a threat to her life if she lodges a complaint at Kumbharpada Police Station, she took the step after returning to her parents’ house.

Meanwhile, a case number 185/19 has been registered at Pipili Police Station and appropriate action will be taken after probe, informed IIC Sarat Chandra Sahu.
