MADIKERI: A man has allegedly shaved the head of his wife and sent her back to her native place as a punishment for not giving more dowry at Abburukatte extension in Somwarpet.

The accused Shiva, an auto driver at Kusubur, allegedly shaved the head of his wife Asha, a native of Thanneeruhalla and threatened to kill her if she informs police.

A hapless Asha, however, approached Somwarpet police. A case has been registered against four accused, including Asha’s mother-in-lawAshaand Shiva, who got married 13 years ago, have two children. According to a complaint filed by Asha, Shiva, his mother Lakshmi, brother-in law Raju and his wife Shanthi used to harass her demanding more dowry despite giving 80 grams of gold during marriage.

After Asha’s parents, who are labourers, said they could not give more money, on November 29, Shiva accused her of having illegal affair and took Asha and her mother Leelavathi to a nearby temple. After shaving off her head, he forcibly took her ornaments and sent her back to her native village.

Asha is now undergoing treatment at a hospital.
