Madras High Court slams woman for alleging hubby intimate with mom

Madras High Court slams woman for alleging hubby intimate with mom,
but still grants maintenance and permanent alimony to the Wife.
What a mockery of Justice???? The Woman is still free after 
disgusting accusation leading to serious assault on the character, 
honour, reputation and status of not only her husband but also her 
father-in law.

CHENNAI: A woman,wholevels an unsubstantiated “disgusting accusation” that her husband had an illicit relationship with his own mother, cannot seek cancellation of divorce, as her allegations amount to cruelty, the Madras high court has said.

A division bench of Justice Elipe Dharma Rao and Justice M Venugopal, dismissing the appeal of P Nirmala recently, said : “The disgusting accusation made by the wife that the husband is having an illicit relationship with his mother, and further accused her father-in-law of leading an adulterous life, are nothing but a serious assault on the character, honour, reputation and status of not only her husband but also her father-inlaw.”

As for her appeal against the family court order granting divorce to her husband, the judges said : “Not proving such allegations against them, but yet resisting divorce proceedings would mean a resolve to live in mental turmoil only to make the life miserable to both parties.”

K Muruguselvam married Nirmala in October 1999 and they had a girl child in October 2000. In 2002, he moved the family court seeking divorce on the grounds of cruelty.In May 2008, the additional family court-I here granted him divorce after recording the fact that she had “seriously alleged that her husband was having illicit intimacy with his own mother and that her father-in-law led an adulterous life”. Noting that the unproved allegations amounted to cruelty to Muruguselvam, he granted divorce on the ground of cruelty. The present appeal was preferred by Nirmala.

Dismissing the appeal, the bench said Nirmala had not substantiated her allegations against her husband andfather-in-law andthat the family court had “rightly weighed and assessed the oral and documentary evidence available on record in a proper manner and has come to the right conclusion that the wife has committed an act of cruelty …Itwarrants nointerference in thehandsof thiscourt.”

As for the maintenance, the bench directed the husband to pay Rs 750 each as monthly maintenance to the wife and daughter, besides Rs 1 lakh each as permanent maintenance as full and final settlement “keeping in mind equity, fair play and good conscience”.

    Difficult to comment on judgment made by HC ….. May be the HC found sufficient ground for the maintenance …… I think some wrong message is getting spread in the society due to this judgment …. HC should make a note of this judgment to make it more clear with reasons to ensure support to their judgment…. they should include strictures also in the statement to understand the common people… this is my view …

    OK! Pls stop being on multiple identities…
    Further…pls dont give us your valuable suggestions…pls check the further proceedings. News channels are the one who for publicity, publish/ print the stories which gives masala….what happens to the same story after the case is filed in Court. Let me tell you the 498a cases data published which states that 98% dowry harassment cases are false… and this is not published by us but by NCRB which is National Agency which keeps records. What happened with Nisha Sharma who was made heroine in a night, but after 9 yrs court acquitted the so called husband and his family members. Ruchi/Lisa do u know that if u try to file false case against ur husband or his family members, u will find that its so easy because mere statement by u is enough for police to make arrest even without investigating ur complaint. Same is about other cases like sexual harrasements, molestation, Rapes etc etc etc….

    I liked the court’s decision to let live husband peacefully even at the cost of money. Let the lady take 750 rs.. I am sure this is not sufficient by any means for any sort of good living. She would still have to work and earn on her own.
    The only wrong message this judgement sends is that do whatever you want in your hubby’s house, you will get something during divorce. This is bad precedent set by the court !!! …. I feel SIFF should support husband take case in Supreme Court and get stay on maintenance. This will be a further good for whole Husband community
