Mumbai. March  2: Borivli resident Manish Madhusudan Kotian (28) was arrested by the MHB Colony police on Wednesday for mentally torturing his wife Shweta (25) and threatening to circulate nude pictures of her through his cell phone.

Shweta said she learnt of the pictures one morning when she was browsing through Manish’s cell phone. “I was casually going through the phone and was shocked to see some nude pictures of me,” said Shweta.

According to Shweta, Manish, a computer operator in a diamond trading firm in Panchratna, Opera House, used to give her some black powder which would make her lose consciousness. After that, he would undress her and photograph her in the nude, she alleged. “I used to wake up with a severe headache and could not recall any events of the previous night,” said Shweta.

The couple had an arranged marriage in 2000 and have a four-year-old son. “Manish threatened to kill me and my son. Off late he has also been telling me that he would sell me off to a pimp and make me a prostitute. He even humiliated my mother by showing her my nude pictures,” cried Shweta.

She said her relations with Manish had strained after she discovered that he was having an affair with a woman called Pooja. “Once, when I checked Manish’s shirt pocket I found his photograph with Pooja. I also found a letter from Pooja telling Manish to divorce me and marry her. When I asked him about it, he confessed to the affair and said he had been in that relationship even before our marriage,” said Shweta.

According to Shweta, Manish had turned into an alcoholic after the revelation and would sometimes abuse her and beat her with belts. Shweta alleged that once after a beating, Manish had torn off her clothes and poured cold water on her body.

A fed-up Shweta had approached the police twice in February to lodge a complaint. Police had then called Manish and given him 15 days time to change his ways. However, when Manish did not change his behaviour, Shweta approached a women’s oraganisation, Bhagwati Mahila Vikas Mandal who took up her case with the cops.

“Generally we try and counsel couples to settle their marital disputes amicably. But since matters had gone out of hand here, we arrested the husband,” said inspector Vijay Bagwe of MHB Colony police station. Manish will be produced in court on March 2.
