‘Saas-bahu’ sagas are nothing new. However, here is one with a twist. A Russian ‘bahu’ is sitting on dharna at the doorstep of her in-laws in Indrapuri locality of Agra, seeking her husband’s share from her mother-in-law’s property.

Olga Efimenkova is so adamant not to end her protest till her husband is provided their share, that despite rainfall, she sat on dharna on Saturday.

Olga had married Vikrant Singh Chandel in 2011 and they have a son. The couple had been residing in Goa, but after suffering losses in business, they returned to Agra.

However, when the couple reached their house, they were not allowed entry as Vikrant’s mother Nirmala Chandel had gifted the property to her daughter who runs a school there.

Agitated over her husband being deprived of his share in the property, Olga went and sat on a dharna at the doorstep of her in-laws. She is being supported by her husband Vikrant.

When asked, Olga said that she had informed New Agra police and Russian Embassy, but police did not register a case as they said it was a case of property dispute between family members.

Olga’s mother-in-law Nirmala Chandel maintained that she is living in a single room and had gifted the house to her daughter who is estranged from her husband.

“My daughter runs a school on the premises. I have already given Rs 11 lakh to Vikrant. Now I have nothing left with me to give to him,” she said, adding that her son and daughter-in-law gamble and consume liquor and have not cared about her.
