Kamal Anand who works as a manager in a multi national company in Dubai sent his wife and 8-year-old daughter back to her parents home in Bareilly and said he would take them back after he received Rs.1 crore as dowry. An FIR was filed against him based on the complaint of the wife Sunanda who said she married Kamal a resident of Lucknow in 2004, and within a few months her father arranged a job for him at the company in Dubai, and the two settled there. In 2006 Sunanda gave birth to a daughter Anushka and the couple lived on compatibly for two years, but in 2008 Kamal demanded Rs.1 crore as dowry from his in-laws, who expressed their inability to do so. Kamal and his family members then started harassing her and forced her to move to her parent's house in 2011. The two families worked out a settlement after which Sunanda and her daughter returned to their home in Dubai, but things did not improve and Sunanda was subjected to physical and mental abuse by her husband and in-laws again. A case under the Section of the Dowry Prohibition Act has been filed against Kamal Anand and investigations are underway.
