Man Held for Dowry Harassment at Third Wedding
Wed 15-01-2014

The reception for the third marriage of a 30-year-old businessman didn't go quite as planned after he was arrested for dowry harassment at the venue.

The first wife of Adnan Mukadam, a former ICICI bank employee, has accused him of dowry harassment.

Adnan is the son of Iqbal Mukadam, chairman of Gateway Elephanta Jal-Vahatuk Sahakari Sanstha Maryadit, which owns several ferry boats.

He was arrested from Courtyard Hotel in Amboli on January 10, where he was celebrating his third marriage when his first wife Shabana showed up.

"The reception had just started when around 8 pm, Adnan's first wife Shabana came and created a ruckus, following which the police arrested Adnan saying he was wanted in a dowry harassment case. It was very embarrassing for the family," said a relative, requesting anonymity.

In her FIR lodged at Kasturba Marg Police Station, Shabana alleged that soon after they were married in 2008, Adnan's family started torturing her physically and mentally. She alleged that they demanded money from her.

"He got married to his third wife in a morning ceremony on January 10. I went to the reception only to confront him," she said.
