In UP, the woman presents the FIR against the husband for breach of privacy
BAREILLY: A woman has filed a lawsuit for privacy violation and at the Baradari police station against her husband, accusing him of filming his intimate moments.
In her complaint, she said that when she protested, he first promised to remove the videos, but then began threatening to upload them to social networks. The police have registered an FIR against the husband under sections 377 of the IPC (non-natural crimes), 506 (criminal intimidation) and the provisions of the IT Law. The police are investigating the case and the defendant has not yet been arrested.
According to the police, the plaintiff married a local contractor on October 29, 2018. During her nuptial night, her husband allegedly recorded his intimate moments on his phone. When she objected, he assured her that she would eliminate the video. But a few days later, when she realized that the videos were still there on her husband's phone and tried to eliminate them herself, she allegedly assaulted her sexually in unnatural ways and once shot a video of the act.
Such assaults were repeated several times, but when she approached her in-laws to ask for support, the latter apparently sided with her son. Her husband also threatened to upload the videos online, so she kept quiet instead of alerting her parents. Then, on June 30, after she was allegedly beaten by her husband, she returned to her parents' house and, on July 7, approached the Baradari police station to file a complaint against her husband.
Deputy Inspector Ved Prakash Gupta, acting in charge of the Baradari police station, told TOI: The complaint seems genuine, so we present an FIR against the husband. The case is being investigated by Yogesh Kumar, but since it is the 'Urs-e-Tajush Shariah' season, and Yogesh is in festival service, the investigation will begin once Urs has finished
