Patna: Janata Dal – U legislator Ravindra Kumar who was earlier expelled from the party for indulging in ‘anti-party activities, was at the receiving end on Monday when his wife of seven years Babita approached the police against her husband for extreme cruelty to her, both physically and mentally, for the last several years.
As reported, Babita, feeling threat on her life, filed a case against her husband on Sunday with the Airport Police Station in Patna. The police ordered the couple to appear before a counseling team at Gandhi Maidan Police Station on Monday where Kumar’s wife described her ordeal in the hands of her husband.
“We were married in 2008 and the first two years we had no problem. However, since 2010, he started to physically torture me and our two daughters as well. Things just kept getting from bad to worse until I decided to take the matter to the police,” Babita, who showed beating marks on her left arm, told the police.
“If something happens to me, I want the police to know that it would be my husband who would be responsible for it,” she said fearing threat to her life.
The expelled JD-U leader, at the behest of the police, gave a written apology saying he would not beat his wife or the children anymore and if he did, the police would arrest him.
Police, however, said no charge was filed since the couple reached a mutual consent.
