MYSORE: Officials of the Mysore mahila police station have arrested four persons, including a woman, in Hyderabad in connection with a dowry harassment case.

The police gave the names of the arrested as Habeebulla Khan, his parents Ahmed Khan and Zarina Shehzadi, and brother Rafiulla Khan.

`Dowry'

The police said Habeebulla Khan, a kerosene dealer, had married Ameena Habib Sharief, daughter of timber merchant Sharief. Habeebulla Khan allegedly received cash, gold and silver ornaments from Sharief's family as dowry after a grand wedding here. The police said Habeebulla had been allegedly harassing Ameena to bring more dowry after their marriage.

He came to Mysore recently and had been staying in his father-in-law's house demanding dowry.

Complaint

Unable to bear his harassment, Sharief filed a dowry harassment complaint against Habeebulla and three of his family members. The four were arrested on Wednesday and brought to Mysore.

They were produced in a local court on Thursday. The court remanded them in judicial custody.
