The All Woman Police Station (AWPS) at Avinashi had registered a case into the complaint lodged by Kannammal (65) that her 33-year-old daughter was harassed by husband at United States seeking dowry.

Police sources said the complainant, in the petition, had sought the assistance of the police officials here to rescue her daughter and grandson from United States and bring them back to India.

Premalatha, daughter of Kannammal, got married to R. Gnanasekar on March 13, 2009, and was living with him at Westwood, a borough in Bergen County of New Jersey in USA since then.

Police officials said the complainant had claimed that Premalatha was tortured both at her spouse’s native at Pongupalayam near Avinashi as well as at New Jersey.

The AWPS team are investigating.
