Rekha Nagvanshi, 30, sought revenge on her parents-in-law after they stopped her husband, Deepak, 34, from doing chores around the house in the district of Indore, in India’s Madhya Pradesh State.

It was such a saucer annoyance to the embittered wife that she decided to make the pair of old stirrers cuppa load of her home-made Pee-G Tips on their regular weekly visits. And she milked the situation successfully until the old bag marched spoon-taneously into the kitchen one day and discovered she was being made a convenience of.

Rekha had previously walked out on her arranged marriage with Deepak, but returned for the sake of their four-year-old daughter in exchange for his promise to cook for her, massage her feet, and do the washing-up. But when her in-laws found out about the arrangement they tried to stop it – prompting her to start tinkling in their tea.

“We used to go and visit them once or twice a week,” said Rekta’s disgusted mother-in-law, Suraj, as quoted in the Daily Mirror. “And 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.”

Now Rekta can lump it so far as Suraj, 60, and her husband Ajith, 55, are concerned. They reckon the police’s refusal to act is taking the biscuit, and are planning a private prosecution against their daughter-in-law.

“You cannot urinate into someone’s tea for a year and get away with it,” added Suraj. “We want justice.”

Rekha and Deepak are now thought to be living apart again. Sugar.
