Her in-laws didn’t construct a toilet despite requests, forcing a newly-wed woman to return to her parents’ house in Morena.

The matter came to light on Wednesday when Rajni Jatav filed an application at the women’s police station in Gwalior.

Twenty-one-year-old Rajni married Satyendra Jatav, 22, a few months ago. At the time of marriage, Satyendra’s family lied to Rajni that their house has a toilet.

But when Rajni went to her in-laws’ house, she came to know that she would have to go out to answer the nature’s call.

She requested the family members to construct a toilet but in vain. She left the house and returned back to her house in Gwalior.

Women’s police station counselor Mahendra Shukla called the in-laws and husband of Rajni. Satyendra has given a written assurance to police that they would get a toilet constructed soon.

Earlier, a woman in Betul had taken a similar step. She was later feted by the Sulabh International.
