HYDERABAD: A software engineer from the city, who was employed in the US, was arrested from the Delhi international airport in a dowry harassment case. The techie was returning to the US when immigration authorities caught him and handed him over to the city police.
The software engineer is the son of Asifabad additional district judge Sambasiva Rao.
Police said K Ramakrishna was married to Anupama, a resident of Yousufugda in 2006. Anupama’s parents reportedly gave Rs 1.80 lakh cash, gold ornaments and other household articles as dowry during the marriage.
An year after the marriage, Ramakrishna and Anupama left to the US. Ramakrishna started harassing his wife for additional dowry. When Anupama become pregnant, Ramakrishna sent her to Hyderabad. She told her parents about the harassment.
Anupama’s family members met Ramakrishna’s parents, Sambasiva Rao and Saraswati, several times to sort out the matter but their efforts went in vain.
In May this year, Anupama lodged a complaint against her husband and in-laws with the police.
The City police alerted all international police stations about the case and issued a look out circular against him. Recently, Ramakrishna came to Delhi on an official work and was on his way back to the US from the Delhi airport when immigration officials caught him.
“Ramakrishna was arrested from the Delhi airport and he was sent to judicial remand,’’ CCS women police station inspector S jyothi Lakshmi said.
Meanwhile, the police sought the permission of the High Court to take action against Sambasiva Rao and are awaiting court’s nod.
