A man allegedly threw his 24-year-old wife out of the house late last month for drawing portraits of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Uttar Pradesh chief minister Yogi Adityanath at a village in Sikandarpur area of Ballia district, police said.

Police said Nagma Parveen, a native of Maturi village married Parvez Khan of Basakirpur village in Sikandarpur area in November 2016. Nagma’s father Shamsher Khan alleged that although his son-in-law and his family members used to harass her for dowry, she tried to get along with them.

Police said the woman drew paintings of PM Modi and chief minister Yogi Adityanath recently and showed them to her husband, who allegedly lost his cool and beat her up.

The woman then informed her father who came to Basakirpur and spoke to his son-in-law and his parents. They alleged that Nagma had gone mad. The woman and her father then headed to the police station and narrated their woes to the police.

Police said that Shamsher Khan told them that Nagma’s in-laws told him that his daughter was drawing pictures of Modi and Yogi and had no right to live with them.

“We are going to register a case in this connection following a complaint by the woman. A thorough probe will be carried out and action will be ensured accordingly,” Avinash Kumar Singh, station officer of Sikandarpur police station told HT.

He said the woman earlier lodged a complaint against her in-laws on July 20, alleging that they were harassing her for dowry. The matter is under mediation.
