Hyderabad: Alleging that his Non-Resident Indian (NRI) son-in-law was torturing his daughter in Australia, a retired BHEL employee lodged a complaint with the Cyberabad police on Thursday.
The retired BHEL engineer, Venkateswara Rao, said his daughter Padmaja married Kambala Venkata Subba Rao of Mansoorabad in 2001. Venkata Subba Rao, known as Venkat, had finished Ph D from IICT.
At the time of the marriage, Venkat was given Rs 11 lakh worth property as dowry, Venkateswara Rao said.
Following the marriage, Venkat went to France, Switzerland and Australia on post-doctoral work. He is now currently a research fellow with the University of South Australia in Adelaide.
The couple has two daughters. All the family members are now citizens of Australia. Venkat began harassing his wife from 2004, demanding her to get money from her parents, Rao alleged in his complaint. “He wants us to sell some of the properties in India and give him the money,” Rao said.
Unable to put up with the harassment, Padmaja wanted to approach the local authorities in Australia for help, but constant surveillance by Venkat and threats to harm the children stopped her from doing so, Rao added.
A few days ago, Padmaja spoke to her parents and asked them to approach the local police in India.
On Thursday, Rao approached the Kushaiguda police and lodged a complaint against his son-in-law.
“We have registered a case under section 498-A (Subjecting a married woman to cruelty) against Venkata Subba Rao,” Kushaiguda inspector T Manohar Reddy said.
On Friday, Rao is planning to approach the Crime Investigation Department (CID), which deals with cases related to Indian nationals residing abroad.
