Earth shook beneath feet of a groom who received a private video of his own fiance just before a day of his first night in Bengaluru. A 31-years-old newlywed man from Bengaluru filed an FIR against his own wife after he received a video showing her in a compromising position with another man one before they were to consummate their marriage.
Brajesh (name changed), a resident of Subramanyanagar, said he married Sandhya (name changed) of Chikkamagaluru on November 24, 2019, in Hassan. They had been engaged in June. Brajesh works with a private firm, while Sandhya is a government employee.
Brajesh said he spent Rs 1.2 lakh for the engagement and Rs 7.6 lakh for the marriage. Their first night was scheduled for December 15. In the FIR Brajesh said, "On the night of December 13, I received on Facebook Messenger photographs of my wife indulging in sexually explicit acts with another man. A mobile number was provided with the pictures. I dialled the number and the person from the other side introduced himself as Ram (name changed), who said Sandhya and he were in a relationship for seven years."
According to Brajesh, Ram claimed he and Sandhya continued their physical relationship even after her engagement on June 30, 2019. “Later, I received a porn video from Ram, showing Sandhya and him sharing some intimate moments. Then, I received screenshots of WhatsApp messages exchanged between Ram and Sandhya on the nights of December 10 and 12. Sandhya in one of the messages tells that she likes Ram while her family members like me. Further, Sandhya says she is ready to spurn me."
As per Subramanyanagar police, Brajesh sought legal intervention to prove Sandhya had an affair and cheated him by withholding the information, while her parents too were aware of their daughter’s relationship.
Brajesh claimed Sandhya’s maternal uncle threatened him against going to the police. “Sandhya is threatening to commit suicide after leaving behind a note, as per Brajesh and his family of abetting her suicide,” the complainant said.
Based on Brajesh’s statement, police have registered a case under IPC sections 406 (breach of trust) and 506 (criminal intimidation).
