Police Machinery Can’t Be Utilised To Hold Husband At Ransom

Gujarat HC, Ahmedabad Bench



About/from the judgment:

Police Machinery Can’t Be Utilised To Hold Husband At Ransom!


Every matrimonial conduct, which may cause annoyance to the other, may not amount to cruelty, the court observed.


The case appears to be one of a serious maladjustment in the marital life. The wife, as usual, has levelled wild and reckless allegations of harassment and cruelty not only against the husband, but even against the father-in-law and mother-in-law. The allegations do not inspire any confidence worth the name. In my view, continuation of the criminal proceedings will be nothing, but an abuse of the process of law.


The first thing that comes in the mind of the wife, her parents and her relatives is the police, as if the police is the panacea of all evil. No sooner the matter reaches the police, then even if there are fair chances of reconciliation between the spouses, they would get destroyed.


The spouses fight with such venom in their heart that they do not think even for a second that if the marriage would come to an end, then what will be the effect on their children. Divorce plays a very dubious role so far as the upbringing of the children is concerned.
