The Faridabad police have filed a case of dowry harassment against the husband of a British woman on Friday.
Vijayantimala, the British national, said she met and married Anil Nagar of Buapur village, Faridabad, during her visit to India in 2005.
After the marriage, both Vijayantimala and Anil went to London and Anil stayed there for nearly two years, she said .
Anil, who served in a hotel in London, returned in 2008. He claims that he got an ex-parte divorce from a local court here in May 2009. Subsequently, Anil married a local girl Poonam a few months back.
“I did marry Vijayantimala, a British national, knowing well there was a huge age difference, but I know it was a contractual marriage meant for only two years,” Anil Nagar said. “Her behavior in London was not good, nor did we share a husband-wife relation,” Nagar said.
“It is a fact that I married a local Indian girl a few months ago,” Anil said, claiming that “Vijayantimala tried her best to create hurdles when we were preparing for the post-wedding party.” “I am fighting for justice. Anil used to take money from me and claims he has divorced me,” Vijayantimala said on phone.
The Tigaon Police registered an FIR under Section 498A of IPC on Friday on the basis of Vijayantimala’s complaint. Police has started investigation. “It seems to be a case of matrimonial dispute between the two. We have to hear both sides,” PK Agrawal, Commissioner of Police, Faridabad, said.
