New Delhi. In a bizarre incident, Shruti Chandra, a housewife, has filed an FIR against her husband for dropping her at a Maruti service center instead of a beauty parlor. The couple has been happily married over five years and this is their first incident of dispute where Shruti has accused her husband of negligent driving, defamation, infidelity, mental harassment, and cruelty by spouse in a domestic relationship.

“When he halted at the service center and asked me to get down, I thought that maybe he is just planning for a quick break-fix or something. I kept standing there in the sun until an adamant mechanic approached me with a checklist saying that all free-services are over,” said a fuming Shruti.

Beauty Parlor

Shantanu claims that he has lost no love or respect for Shruti, and he can successfully spot her even in such a “costume”.

Further investigation into the case by the police unearthed the fact that Shantanu, a software engineer by profession, has been a great car buff right from his childhood days. So much so that he even used to refer Shruti as Lamborghini during their initial courtship days in college. But due to his parent’s persistence he didn’t follow his dream of becoming an automobile engineer and became just another software engineer.

What that meant was that the closest to his dream cars that he could afford was a Mitsubishi Lancer. But he ended up buying a Maruti Alto as a part of the allocated budget was transferred to pay for brow-lift and nose-job (rhinoplasty) surgery bills of Shruti.

Accepting that she was aware of Shantanu’s craze for cars that had made him call her mother a Lada once, Shruti said that the craze did not in any way justify what he had done now.

“I loved Shantanu so much that I won’t even mind laughing at his sad jokes on similarities between a wife and a car, like how both wives and cars ask for high maintenance and about how both start creaking if not serviced on time. But this is no laughing matter now; it seems he always believed in those jokes!” said a peeved Shruti, breaking into tears.

However Shantanu claims innocence and blames the new signboard at the Maruti service center, which he confused for that of a beauty parlor: Drop your troubles here.

“I know my Lamborghini is angry with me. But it was just an honest mistake. I am sure she will forgive me when she will hear that I have already arranged for her to get a cheek-lift,” said Shantanu, who had sold his Alto a couple of hours back.

    Fake Incident !!? I won’t be surprized if it’s fake as majority of FIRs and cases filed against the husband are false anyway! The whole involvement of law in the matrimonial issues is bizarre, not the incident… there will be a time when wives will file an FIR even if the husband breaks wind.
    “Drop your troubles here.” ;)
