In an insensitive incident, a nurse who contracted the deadly coronavirus was demanded Rs 10 lakh by her husband if she wants to continue staying with him.
The nurse has alleged that her husband abandoned her when she tested positive for COVID-19 in April 2020.
The 27-year-old woman hails from the Isanpur area in Ahemdabad. She filed a complaint with the Kokhara police, the Times of India reported.
A nurse at LG Hospital in Maninagar stated in her FIR that she married the man on February 24, 2020. As per the FIR registered her in-laws have been harassing her since her marriage.
The FIR further stated that her in-laws didn’t want her to work as she might bring the infection home. The woman said that the coronavirus spread across the country after one and a half months of her marriage and she contracted the virus as she continued to attend the patients.
Later, her sister-in-law who is also a nurse suggested her to show a fresh negative report. After the woman refused to undergo any further test, her husband and in-laws demanded her to file a divorce.
Her husband abandoned her for six months which led her to file a police complaint.
