Rekha Nagvanshi, 30 has been found out after urinating in her in law cups of tea everyday for a year as an act of revenge because she was unhappy with her arranged marriage.
The woman would be caught red handed by her mother in law as she walked into the kitchen discovering her daughter in law squatting over the teapot.
Angered that her in-laws had stopped her husband, Deepa, 34, from doing chores around the home, Rekha told she sought revenge by urinating in their cups of tea for more than a year.
Claiming she would rather live with her parents, she said she was unhappy about her arranged marriage and felt she was being treated poorly after being forced to live with her husband’s parents in the district of Indore in central India’s Madhya Pradesh State.
A friend of the woman, Alia Kohli, 32 told reporters that Rekha was an independent woman who resented the influence Deepak’s parents exercised over their day to day lives.
Told the friend : ‘She was very unhappy with her arranged marriage and said her husband treated her like a slave and eventually she decided she’d had enough.
‘But after moving out, he begged her to go back for the sake of their four-year-old daughter.
‘She agreed but only if he cooked for her, massaged her feet and did all the washing up.’
But after moving back in, parents-in-law Suraj, 60, and her husband Ajith, 55, found out about the arrangement and tried to stop it.
Reiterated the friend: ‘He seemed fine with it but they went mental and accused her of treating him like a slave.
‘Rekha is strong-minded and likes to be independent and the thought of being dictated to by his parents was just too much for her.
‘So I guess that’s when she decided to start doing what she did, and urinating in their tea.’
Reiterated the mother in law, Suraj: ‘We used to go and visit them once or twice a week.
‘And although we knew she didn’t like us we had no idea she was doing this. She always smiled and offered us tea and we accepted.
‘But one day I went into the kitchen and found her urinating into the teapot.’
After going to the police and being told it was not a case for them, the horrified parents-in-law decided to take out a private prosecution.
Suraj said: ‘You cannot urinate into someone’s tea for a year and get away with it. We want justice.’
Rekha and her husband Deepak are now understood to be living apart.
