Flipkart founder Bansal’s wife files dowry harassment case

Bengaluru: Flipkart co-founder Sachin Bansal’s wife Priya filed a dowry harassment case against him in Koramangala police station in the city, police said on Thursday.

“Sachin Bansal’s wife has filed a dowry harassment case against him,” confirmed Madiwala Assistant Commissioner of Police Kari Basavanagowda to IANS.

“Post-wedding, it was decided that I will stay with my husband. Before the wedding, in-laws visited my home and asked for more dowry. My husband and in-laws have been giving me mental and physical torture for dowry. When my sister Radhika Goyal was in Delhi, Sachin had sexually assaulted her. Sachin had tried to transfer all properties in my name to his name and when I refused, Sachin physically assaulted me on October 20, 2019. I have been tortured mentally and physically by in-laws for dowry,” Priya Bansal alleged in the FIR.

Priya, 35, alleged that her father splurged Rs 50 lakh on her wedding and additionally gave Rs 11 lakh to 38-year-old Bansal.

She said that the e-commerce pioneer in India has been harassing her to transfer all the properties on her name to his ownership.

In consequence of her rejection to do so, Priya said Bansal’s family has been harassing her.

In Priya’s complaint, Bansal has been designated as the accused one (A1), followed by Sat Prakash Aggarwal (A2), Kiran Bansal (A3) and Nitin Bansal (A4).

The investigating officer said the probe is on and Bansal has not been arrested yet.
