Desertion charge against NRI

By Our Staff Reporter

KARIMNAGAR, DEC. 27. A woman has lodged a complaint with the district police against a Non-resident Indian (NRI) from the US for reportedly deserting her, demanding additional dowry of Rs 10 lakhs and also serving a fake decree of divorce issued by the district court of the County of Clark, State of Nevada, USA.

M Suguna, resident of Thimmapur mandal of Karimnagar district, was married to M Narsimha Chary alias Srinivas, resident of Cheerlavancha of Sircilla mandal, on August 28, 1997 as per Hindu traditions. At the time of marriage, a dowry of Rs 3 lakhs and other articles, including gold, etc were given. Narasimha Chary, an engineering graduate from Osmania University, left for the US for further studies after marriage on September 4, 1997, with a promise of taking his wife within three months. However, he failed to fulfil his promise in the name of completion of MS studies and searching for a job. After sometime, he asked Suguna to do a course in computers in Karimnagar for better opportunities in the US.

Harassment

Accordingly, Chary's in-laws admitted her to a girl's hostel in the town and joined her in a computer course. She completed her computer course but her husband refused to take her to the US nor see her. On the other hand, her in-laws and others started harassing her, demanding additional dowry of Rs 10 lakhs so that Narasimha Chary would take her to the US. Chary also promised to send her money and asked her to open a bank account, but did not send any.

Meanwhile, Suguna lost her father and also attempted to commit suicide by consuming sleeping pills, but was rescued by doctors. She gained courage and started making calls and sending e-mails to her husband, but in vain. Suddenly, she received divorce papers issued by a US court. When she enquired with local lawyers, it was found that the decree of divorce passed by the US court was found to be manipulated and not applicable to her as their marriage was performed according to Hindu laws.

Seeks action

Talking to newsmen here on Monday, Suguna urged the police to bring her husband back to Karimnagar and take necessary action for deserting her after marriage and demanding additional dowry. Suguna, who is currently working in a private school as a computer instructor, said that her in-laws were planning to migrate to the US by deceiving her. She said that her in-laws would marry off Narasimha Chary for a second time, seek more dowry and deceive another innocent girl.
