Kollam: In a startling revelation, an audio clip describing the assault faced by Vismaya, who committed suicide in Kollam, came out. In the audio clip that is in the possession of Mathrubhumi News, Vismaya exposes the torture she faced at the hands of her husband Kiran Kumar.
Meanwhile, Kollam District Additional Sections Court will pronounce the verdict in the Vismaya case on Monday.
"I won't survive if you leave me here. I need to get back home. Kiran Kumar is assaulting me. I am scared and I would do something," she said in the audio. The phone recording was that of a conversation between Vismaya and her father Thrivikraman Nair.
He said that it was too late by the time he realised that Vismaya was facing torture. "They demanded dowry when we went to their house after marriage. Kiran’s family told me that they paid their daughter 100 sovereigns. We agreed and paid 100 sovereigns, one-and-half acre, Rs 10 lakh and a car. I believe that Kiran Kumar might have tortured my daughter assuming that we would pay more," he said.
"Vismaya revealed the torture she faced in the hands of her husband to her mother. However, she could do little about it and reassured her that everything would be alright. She took her own life after suffering a lot," he said. He added that a favourable verdict would be pronounced that could stand against harassment faced by women in the name of dowry.
Vismaya, an Ayurveda medical student, was found hanging in the bathroom of her husband's house at Sasthamkotta in Kollam district. Vismaya's husband Kiran Kumar was booked for abetment of suicide and other charges in the case. Following the outrage over the woman's death, Kiran, who was working as an assistant motor vehicle inspector, was dismissed from service.
