The menace of con brides in Punjab has been only increasing, where lesser educated Men are lured into contract marriages by IELTS qualified women to sponsor their education abroad. Once the brides reach their destination in a foreign land after making husbands spend Rs 30-50 lakh, they discontinue all communication with men and their families.
With regards to this matter, Punjab Congress MP Jasbir Singh Gill on Tuesday gave a notice in the Lok Sabha seeking a discussion on the alleged harassment of husbands by NRI brides and said there were laws to address harassment by NRI husbands but none even acknowledging, let alone covering, the “anguish caused by NRI brides.”
Giving a notice for a short duration discussion on the matter and calling the attention of the home minister to the issue, Gill said in LS,
I am in the know of many cases where deserted husbands committed suicide and families of many in laws were left in financial distress leading to disturbances.
The MP from Khadoor Sahib said several husbands were financing their wives to study The International English Language Testing System (IELTS), and later to travel and settle abroad. In the notice given to Lok Sabha Secretary General, he added,
After completing the study the wife gets her work permit and instead of sponsoring the husband to the new country, she deserts the man. We have a law to punish runaway husbands but there is no law to punish girls who inflict deep psychological and financial wounds. We should bring in a law for this.
