IAS officer's wife protests alleged harassment by her husband

An IAS officer's wife, along with leaders and activists of All Democratic Women's Association (AIDWA), staged a protest in front of the officer's house today, to protest against forcing her for a judicial separation.

Vice Chairman and Managing Director of Girijan Cooperative Corporation (GCC), Visakhapatnam, Eathokata Ramesh Kumar's wife Swapna (35) alleged he and his family were agitated that she did not give birth to a male heir to carry forward the family legacy.

Swapna, a BTech graduate from Warangal in Telangana, who married Ramesh Kumar in October 29, 2001, said problems began after she gave birth to her first daughter E Rupin Kamini around 11 years ago.

After her second daughter E Shansia was born six years ago, her in-laws allegedly began harassing her as well as brainwashing her husband to marry another woman.

Swapna said she hoped that her husband would reform and love their children but alleged Ramesh did not change his attitude and continued harassing her. He filed a petition for judicial separation at the Additional Family Court, Visakhapatnam, on March 12, 2013, she said.

"I, along with my children, left for my parents' home town in Khammam around seven months ago after my husband and in-laws threatened me with dire consequences for staying with them. I approached several IAS and IPS officers to solve my problem but no one responded. Ramesh severely harassed me and my daughters and did not even provide food on some days," Swapna charged.
