BANGALORE: In an interesting case, the Karnataka high court has passed an order dissolving the marriage of a film producer citing that he has sufficiently proved the cruelty meted out to him by his wife.
"The making of unreasonable and unjustifiable demand for a separate house and a sum of Rs 20,00,000 in lump and Rs 20,000 as maintenance per month, the lodging of complaints on important dates, the dates or the previous day, on which the younger brothers of her husabnd were getting engaged and getting family members arrested and taken straight from marriage halls definitely amount to mental cruelty. The family court judge has not appreciated the evidence in right perspective," a division bench headed by Justice K L Manjunath has observed while ordering dissolution of the marriage conducted in Mysore in March 2006.
The husband, who had claimed that his wife kept on postponing the nuptila ceremony and had even asked him to undergo HIV test, which he underwent and was asked to undergo ELISA test and co-habitation was denied.
Interestingly, the wife had filed complaints against the family members either on the day or the previous day of the engagement ceremonies of the younger brothers of her husband and forcing them to take anticipatory bail in 2009.
