Divorce granted on ground of cruelty like tantrik kriya

Santosh Sahay vs Hanuman Sahay

Delhi HC


MAT.APP.(F.C.) 63/2016

About/from the judgment:

Divorce granted on ground of cruelty like tantrik kriya!


The disgusting accusations made by the wife against the husband of he being in illicit relationship, referring him as a drunkard are serious in nature assassinating his character and harming his reputation as a teacher. She has failed to prove any of the above but yet resisting the divorce which if accepted, would make life of the two even more complex and unbearable. The allegations made not only in the written statement but also in the FIR against the husband and his entire family have the effect of causing mental cruelty to him and his entire family. It is now beyond cavil that if a false character assassination allegation is made by either spouse it would invariably constitute matrimonial cruelty to entitle other spouse to seek divorce.
