A woman residing in the posh Prahladnagar area has accused her husband of trying to force her into a wife swapping deal. The woman who has been married for 13 years and has an 11-year-old son has alleged that her husband tortured her both physically and mentally to force her into the wife swapping deal.
The 40-year-old woman Shweta (name changed) lives in a bungalow behind the YMCA club in Prahladnagar. She got married to her husband Parth (name changed) in the year 2004 in an arranged marriage.
For 13 years they had a good marriage. In the year 2017, she got to know that her husband was having an affair with another woman. Things began to go downhill as her husband allegedly began to torture her physically and mentally after being caught.
He also forced her to have a wife-swapping session with a person but when she refused he got angry and began to abuse her. She complained to her brother who intervened and helped the couple reach a compromise. Her in-laws and husband allegedly continued to harass her.
Wife Swapping: How the relation deteriorated
Again the relationship began to deteriorate and on January 29, 2020, Shweta called her relatives to help intervene in the matter. The couple agreed to forget the past and live in harmony but Paarth continued with his affairs and began pressuring Shweta to divorce him.
He also stayed away from Shweta for over a year. Shweta whose marital jewellery was in the common locker of her in-laws’ family got the same sealed. Unable to take the torture anymore, Shweta filed a complaint against her husband and in-laws for mental and physical torture with the West Mahila police station.
