INDIA, New Delhi: A strange form of dowry demand, even before marriage, has come to surface. The demand is not for a house, car, gold or lakhs of money, the groom’s family allegedly demanded a nude selfie of the bride-to-be for their son and said only then the marriage would get consummated.
Such a rare demand was kept by 33-year-old Jitendra and his family who hails from Thane, Maharashtra.
Surprisingly, Jitendra had reportedly asked the girl to send a nude selfie of herself, only after which he would ask his parents to finalise a date for their marriage.
He even told his family about his bizarre wish. Furthermore, his family actually went ahead and kept the condition before the bride and her family as a clause for getting married.
However, the girl and her family flatly refused to accede to his filthy demand. But the story does not end here, Jitendra and his family even asked the girl’s family for Rs 3 lakhs in cash and a new motorcycle, as per media reports.
The girl’s family immediately informed the police. On the basis of the complaint, Jitendra and his family have been put behind bars.
Police have informed that the dirty wish of Jitendra was a well thought out plan before getting married. This was a way of getting more dowry from the girl’s family. They had planned that as soon as they would have the selfie, Jitendra and his family would blackmail the bride’s parents to extract more money from them.
