Srija, who eloped with Sirish in Oct 2007, filed a harassment case for dowry against her husband. Chiranjeevi's youngest daughter lodged a complaint against her husband where she claimed that Sirish allegedly torture her mentally and physically for dowry.
According the police sources, Srija had already given several crores of rupees to Sirish and now her husband is demanding Rs 1.5 crore more.
"But of late there has been no end to his greed and it has become a daily practice for him to get drunk and torture his wife," the police official informed citing Srija's complaint.
Police has issued a case under under section 498-A (subjecting a married woman to cruelty) of the IPC against Sirish and sources reported that he was already taken into custody. Though police has not declared anything about his arrest.
