Woman rescued from hubby’s house arrest after 2 months

Jul 10, 2017

MYSURU: A homemaker who was ‘reluctant’ to reunite with her harassing husband was rescued from his community members who were allegedly forcing her to return to him in HD Kote taluk of Mysuru district.

The timely help came three days ago from Santhavana Centre, run by the women and child welfare department. Sudharani, mother of a 10-year-old boy, had been confined within four walls for nearly two months by her husband Nagendra Prasad, who suspected her fidelity.
Sudharani was then taken to her parents’ home in Belthur, also in HD Kote. But her ordeal did not end there as Prasad, along with a few community members, took her to Sargur where she was allegedly coerced to agree to go with the husband.

She was kept in isolation in the community hall in the town for nearly five hours and was threatened that she would have to pay Rs 4 lakh as compensation if she didn’t go with her husband.
