Humiliated by the absence of toilet in her home, a woman from Patna dragged her father-in-law to the police station and allegedly forced him to sign a bond that he would get one constructed soon.
The incident happened in Cheggan Neura village in Minapur block of Bihar’s Muzaffarpur district.
Jyoti, the officer in-charge of women’s police station in Muzaffarpur, told PTI that the woman had given a written complaint on 25 September against her father-in-law and brother-in-law for not paying any attention to her constant pleas for a toilet.
Because of this hardship, she would come to her marital home only when her husband returned from his work place in Tamil Nadu.
She used to again shift to her father’s house after he went back to his place of work.
On the basis of the complaint, the police called the two accused to the police station on 26 September, Jyoti said.
The two men relented before police and the father-in-law signed the bond that a toilet would be constructed at home soon.
“We asked them to do it in one week but they pleaded for some more time to arrange money. After the compromise was reached, the woman withdrew her complaint,” Jyoti added.
