"We have not demanded any dowry from the Paravur woman. The allegations by her family are baseless. I apologise for Rahul's mistake," his mother Usha said referring to the domestic abuse.

"A mistake came from my son's side. The family did not do what they said. The girl was engaged in Eratupetta. Later, the marriage was registered as part of the procedure to take the girl abroad, however, did not tie the knot. All this was done by Rahul himself. My son is missing, I can't call him, I don't know where he is. My
son is not aloof," Usha told Asianet News.

Mother Usha also said that her son stays at home when he comes from Germany.

Rahul is suspected to have been in hiding in Bengaluru. The police reached Rahul's house this morning and collected the CCTV footage.

In the incident, a special police team led by Farooq ACP reached the house of the complainant in Ernakulam North Paravur yesterday and took her statement.

Domestic violence against the woman surfaced when her family visited Rahul's residence as part of post-wedding ceremonies on Sunday.

She further revealed that Rahul had frequently beaten her, suspecting infidelity. Subsequently, her family accompanied her to the police station to file a complaint against Rahul. Additionally, the woman declared her intention to terminate her week-long marriage and returned her 'Thali' to Rahul.
