In a bizarre development, a man is facing accusation of ‘marital rape’ from his wife.
It emerged that the man has been booked for marital rape on court orders after his wife accused him of forcing her to have sex with him.
This could very well be the first of its kind of case of marital rape on a husband by wife.
The wife has also lodged complaints of dowry demand and torture against her in-laws.
The woman, a resident of Sinthee, approached the court to register a case after she claimed the physical assault continued even after she got pregnant.
Police investigations have found that when the wedding was fixed, the woman’s family was told that the man was a senior official at a private bank.
But on reaching her in-laws’ home at Bansberia, she realized she had been cheated as he turned out to be a junior employee at a small private firm.
The woman began to avoid him but continued to force himself on her and the in-laws tortured her, she alleged.
Women rights activists have been demanding that a husband cannot own his wife’s body.>
