Last night she came to our house with some goons and started roughing me and my parents. She with help of those miscreants looted jewelry and cash breaking the wardrobe,” the youth said.
“She and her henchmen beat us severely and went away with our three-year old daughter leaving us injured,” he alleged. Later, he lodged  a complaint against 10 persons including his wife Sonali, her brother Pankaj Chowdhury and mother Pratima Chowdhury.
