Karnataka: May 3, 2014

A case has been registered against the father of international cricketer Robin Uthappa, Venu Uthappa, and two others for allegedly subjecting his mother to cruelty. “We have booked a case against three persons, including Robin Uthappa’s father for allegedly subjecting his wife Roselyn Uthappa to cruelty,” Kodagu Superintendent of Police Anucheth told PTI in Madikeri, Karnataka.

The case was booked on Tuesday evening, he said adding that the other two accused are Venu Uthappa’s relative Calvin Varghese and his wife Manjushri. The couple, who reside in Bangalore, had been to Venu’s house during which they picked up a fight with the cricketer’s mother. Roselyn complained that Calvin allegedly caused her harm by pulling her hand and Venu stood silently, doing nothing to stop him from assaulting her, Anucheth said.

Police have booked cases under Sections 498-A (Husband or relative of husband of a woman subjecting her to cruelty), 506 (Punishment for criminal intimidation) and 323 (Punishment for voluntarily causing hurt), Anucheth said. He said relations between cricketer Uthappa’s parents are not good. Police have served notice to all the three accused, Anucheth said adding, “If they don’t respond to it, we will not have any option but to arrest them.” Venu is an international hockey referee and Roselyn is a housemaker. Robin Uthappa now plays for Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) in the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL) 7.
