Hyderabad: Police have arrested a 38-year-old architect for filming his wife nude and harassing her for dowry at Malkajgiri in Hyderabad.
Identified as Dinesh Chand Pittala, he was only harassing his wife for dowry, but also threatening to make intimate videos public.
Police have registered a case under the Dowry prohibition Act and outraging the modesty of a woman.
Sources said Dinesh is working as an Architect while his wife is a homemaker. Her parents had given Rs 10 lakh cash and 20 tolas of Gold as dowry to Dinesh when they got married in April 2018.
Sources said after a few months, he started demanding more dowry. Further, he also started harassing her physically and mentally.
He, according to sources, was filming his wife while bathing. Moreover, he also filmed sexual acts on his mobile phone.
What came as a shock was when his wife found that Dinesh was gay. He, however, threatened his wife not to reveal his sexual orientation to anyone otherwise he would upload the videos on the social media.
Last month, Dinesh along with his parents and relatives threw her out of the house. Fed up with the harassment, she approached the police and narrated the tale of woes. Police immediately swung into action and arrested Dinesh.
