There have been many jokes about people’s relationships with their in-laws in the past, but this lady from India took matters far more seriously. She disliked her husband’s parents so much that when they visited, she urinated in her in-laws’ tea.
Rekha Nagvanshi, 30, was recently caught in the act, squatting over the teapot, urinating in her in-laws tea, when her mother-in-law entered the kitchen. Nagvanshi then admitted she had been doing the same thing every time they visited for the last year.

According to the Daily Mail, Rekha was unhappy with her arranged marriage to her husband Deepak, 34. She left the home in the Indore district of central India, telling him she would rather live with her parents.
According to a friend of hers, 32-year-old Alia Kohli, Deepak had treated Rekha like a slave, and finally the woman had had enough. However, Kohli added that Deepak then begged Rekha to return home for the sake of their 4-year-old daughter.
After much cajoling, Rekha agreed, but she made the condition that her husband do the cooking, wash the dishes, and also massage her feet. Sounds like a fair deal indeed.
However, Deepak’s parents, Suraj, 60 and Ajith, 55, were not happy about the arrangement and tried to put a stop to it.

According to the Irish Mirror, Kohli explained that Rekha is a strong-minded person and likes to be independent. She said the thought of Rekha being dictated to by her in-laws was just too much.
“So I guess that’s when she decided to start doing what she did, and urinating in their tea.”
However, she was caught in the act of urinating in her in-laws’ tea and mother-in-law Suraj was disgusted, saying they used to go and visit Rekha and Deepak once or twice every week.
“… although we knew she didn’t like us we had no idea she was doing this. She always smiled and offered us tea and we accepted. But one day I went into the kitchen and found her urinating into the teapot.”
Apparently the horrified couple went to the police but found they couldn’t lay a charge against Rekha for urinating in her in-laws’ tea. They then decided to go for a private prosecution against Rekha, with Suraj saying she can’t get away with it.
“You cannot urinate into someone’s tea for a year and get away with it. We want justice.”
Whether the couple will get the justice they require or not is unknown, but apparently Rekha and Deepak are once again living apart. It is also unknown whether her in-laws have gone off drinking tea altogether.
