The woman, daughter of an electrician, was married off to Gopal Das, a 40-year-old widower and father of one.
The woman, who hailed from Kankurgachi in Kolkata, was left with her husband and in-laws after the wedding by her family but the next morning they were informed by the groom's neighbours that their daughter was tortured by the in-laws.

Neighbours of the accused and the groom also beat up the two men before they were arrested. A complaint was lodged with the local police station and the girl was medically examined.
