Durg, Sep 2 (PTI) A 21-year-old woman here in Chhattisgarh has lodged a case against her husband, accusing him of forcibly converting her religion for marriage and indulging in unnatural sex with her, an official said on Thursday.

She also alleged that her husband and in-laws harassed her for dowry, Chhavni police station house officer Vishal Son said.
