Her claim that she was taken to the United States of America (USA) to record a statement in connection with the November 26 terror attack seems to have brought city resident Anita Kudiyadi domestic conflict after police trouble.
Back from a stay in hospital, Kudiyadi’s husband is said to have kicked up a storm at home after getting to know the whole story.
Kudiyadi lives in the Machhimarnagar opposite Badhwar Park, where the terrorists are believed to have got off a dinghy.
The Crime Branch had filed a non-cognisable offence against Kudiyadi at the Azad Maidan police station on Friday, charging her with intentionally giving false information to a public servant.
Additional Commissioner of Police Deven Bharti confirmed the complaint against Kudiyadi, who is not a witness in the terrorist attack case.
Kudiyadi’s neighbours, who requested anonymity to avoid police trouble, said it appeared she had not told her husband, who had been undergoing treatment for urinary infection at GT
Hospital, of her whereabouts when she was untraceable for four days — the period she claimed she was abroad but may actually have only travelled beyond the city.
“It seems husband and wife had a huge row over the entire incident in the afternoon,” a next-door neighbour said on Saturday. “The husband was concerned about the Crime Branch filing a necessary (non-cognisable) complaint against her.”
After Kudiyadi’s husband Rajendra returned home, he did not let his wife out of the house.
“My wife committed a big mistake by talking to the media,” Rajendra said. “Police officials have been subjecting us to intense questioning.”
Contacted over a mobile phone, Kudiyadi said she would talk later. In the evening, her home was visited by a police team that was taking down a statement and recording it on camera.
