The commission directed the SSP to submit the action-taken report by the next hearing.
The woman’s family claimed to have paid Rs 8 lakh at the time of marriage. They said Bhupinder promised to take her and her two brothers to the US. But the woman was allegedly dumped within a week of the marriage.
