Efimenkova got married to one Vikrant Singh Chandel of Agra in 2011 and they lived with their three-year-old daughter Dasaha in Goa where Vikrant ran a restaurant. When his business suffered losses, the family of three moved to his hometown last month, setting off a dispute reportedly over property.

In her complaint to the police, Efimenkova alleged that her mother-in-law Nirmala Chandel tortures her mentally for not bringing dowry and has refused to let them into the house.

“My mother-in-law mentally tortures me for being a foreigner and pressures me for dowry. She has kicked me out of the home along with my daughter and my husband,” said Efimenkova, who speaks fluent Hindi.

Her husband told police that his mother has given his share of property to his elder sister Saumya Pal, who lives in New Delhi.

New Agra police station Inspector A K Singh said “it’s a family dispute over property”. Police have registered an FIR against Nirmala Chandel, her brother Rajendra Milind, daughter Saumya Pal and another relative under sections 498-A and 504 of the IPC.

Nirmala, however, accused Efimenkova of “gambling and consuming drugs” and of taking away whatever money she saves.
