Lt Ravi Kiran, on whom the allegations have been levelled had previously moved the court seeking anticipatory bail after his wife raised "baseless" charges against him following his move to approach a family court for divorce.
After the complaint was registered to the Navy chief and with the Delhi police, the Navy has started an internal inquiry based on the complaint.
The wife had allegedly been tortured for dowry and senior colleagues of her husband had tried to molest her, police here had registered a case against 10 people, including her husband, under section 498 (enticing or taking away or detaining with criminal intent a married woman) of the IPC. The charges of torture related to dowry issues were against her husband and his close relatives.
However, the Navy had denied her charges and said the complaint was the result of "a marital discord" and allegations raised by the woman against "superior officers" were "unfair."
