Indore: A 27-year-old dalit woman has agreed to return to her husband`s home at a village in Dewas district, after he promised before a court to get a proper toilet constructed at his place.
Savita, who got married to Mundlaana village resident Devkaran Malviya (30) about seven years back, left her husband`s home along with her two children three years ago and went to live with her parents as she felt a sense of shame at being forced to answer the nature`s call in the open.
Later, she filed a case in a local court seeking monthly maintenance from her husband. During the course of the case, it came to light that she had a dispute with her husband over their being no proper toilet facility in his house.
She told the magistrate court recently that she would not go to her husband`s home unless a proper toilet was built there.
Devkaran has assured the court that he would ensure a proper toilet at his home before January 10, which is the next date of hearing in the case.
