In a reminder of a scene straight from Hindi film Sholay, a 19-year-old woman from Dombivli in Mumbai threatened to jump off the terrace of a four-storey building if her husband didn’t apologise to her for asking her to go her parents home.

Arti Choudhary,19, got married to Mahesh Choudhary, 21, who works at a construction site in Thane, in October. For the past few months, the couple has been fighting over petty issues such as money or his sister’s alleged interference in their lives.

“ We got a call to rescue the woman around 2pm on Thursday. She had climbed the terrace and got on to the ledge, demanding her husband apologise for the fight in the morning. A few local residents got her husband, who said sorry to her and promised he wouldn’t fight with her again,” said Lalita Thokle, assistant sub-inspector, Dombivli police station.

The police managed to convince the woman to come down. The couple was counselled and sent back home after a warning.
