Navi Mumbai: Police have registered an offence against a man and his two relatives at Digha in Navi Mumbai for allegedly beating up his wife as they were against her wearing fashionable bangles, an official said on Saturday.
The Rabale MIDC police filed the case based on a complaint lodged by the 23-year-old woman, he said. As per the complaint, the victim's husband Pradeep Arkade (30) was against her wearing fashionable bangles and argued with her over the issue.
