Chennai Saidapet court acquitted actor Prashanth of all charges filed against him by his wife Grihalakshmi, who according to the police had misrepresented facts and accused him of dowry harassment case.
Mr.Prasanth speaking on the issue said that his case was a classic example of how section 498 A of the IPC, which protects women against dowry harassment has been misused by his wife Grihalakshmi.Despite of submitting false testimonials to the media and tarnishing his image, he never reacted against her as she was going to bear his children at that time.He was also shocked to hear, she was already married to someone else.Mr.Prasanth had to trace out all the relevant documents to substantiate his case and did not go to the media. Instead, he resorted to the law in which he had immense faith.
When asked about his son, Mr.Prasanth said that he wanted to take steps and fought for him.
It is relevant to mention here that recently the Supreme Court of India has held that the provisions of the Dowry prohibition Act should not be used to harass the husband.
