    Tikamgarh (MP): Anticipatory bail plea of a judge couple and their son in a dowry harassment case was rejected by a local court here.
    District and Sessions Judge Uday Singh Behrawat rejected the anticipatory bail application of retired judge Purshottam Bhatt, his wife, Meena Bhatt and their son Siddharth yesterday.
    The family had approached the court after Jatara police in the district registered cases against them under various sections on the directions of Madhya Pradesh high court.
    While Purshottam has retired, his wife Meena is a judge in the family court at Jabalpur.
    Siddharth was married to one Meenu on July 5, 2006 and since then the Bhatts had been harassing her for dowry.
    On April 5, 2009 the Bhatts called Meenu's father Jagat Narayan Sharma to Jabalpur and demanded Rs three lakh from him and threatened him to implicate in false case if he failed to pay.
    Following this, Jagat Narayan committed suicide on April 9 that year and later the case was pursued by his brother Manoj Sharma with Madhya Pradesh high court which directed the Jatara police to register a case against Bhatts.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
