Advocate Rinkukumari Yadav and public prosecutor Manoj Kumar Gupta argued on behalf of the complainant in the custody hearing on Tuesday. Earlier, Neha's husband Pankaj Chaudhary has also been jailed by the court for taking dowry. According to social tradition, Neha and Pankaj Choudhary got married on March 9, 2022 AD. During the marriage, Pankaj's family also took a dowry of more than 1 crore.
But later Neha is accused of pressurizing her to build a house in Kathmandu and when she refused, she demanded more dowry by torturing her. After the relationship broke down, Pankaj initially filed a divorce case. After that, Neha filed cases of forgery, domestic violence, dowry, mana chamal, and partial cases against her husband Pankaj, father-in-law Rampravesh, and four other family members.
