Man Locked Up Wife At Home For 12 Years, But No Case Lodged; Check Details

Bengaluru: Police have rescued a woman who claimed to be locked up at home for 12 years by her husband.

Despite her prolonged ordeal, though, the woman didn’t lodge a case against her husband and decided to stay at her parents’ place.

According to the woman, who is in her thirties, the husband had kept her locked inside a Mysuru house for 12 years. During this period, she apparently she used a small box for toilet and loo breaks.

She also said that their two children had to wait outside the house after returning from school, until her husband returned from work and let them in.

“It’s been 12 years since I got married. He always locked me up in the house and tortured me. Nobody in the area would question him… My children go to school. But they remained outside until my husband comes back from work. I would give them food through the window,” India Today quoted the woman as saying.

A police officer differed with the woman, saying that she was confined to her home only during the last two to three weeks.

“Her movement was restricted. She visited her parents’ home in the past. The husband was locking her inside the house before leaving for work. He was insecure. He has been counselled as well,” the officer told India Today.

Police counselled the woman, who is the man’s third wife, and she agreed to try and sort out her marital issues.
