Man does sting on wife to establish her income

The husband had conducted a sting operation to establish that his wife was working and earning a good sum.

AHMEDABAD: Gujarat high court asked a family court in Surat to permit a man to pose certain question to a witness, who has allegedly employed his wife. This happened after the employer refused to identify the employee as the man’s wife in a video clip showing the woman working at the employer’s firm.

The husband had conducted a sting operation to establish that his wife was working and earning a good sum.

Rajesh and Meena Patel are in a legal battle, and the court in Surat asked Rajesh to pay Meena Rs 25,000 as maintenance every month. Rajesh objected to this and claimed that his wife was working at an engineering firm with a salary of Rs 17,000.

To prove his wife’s employment, Rajesh called the firm’s owner as a witness, who said that Meena was not working in his firm. Rajesh produced a video recording in the courtroom, showing a woman working in this office. However, the employer refused to identify the woman. On this, the husband asked for account books to confirm if his firm paid a salary to Meena.

The court didn’t allow the call for account books to verify the employment and to verify that the witness had lied by not identifying the woman in the video recording. Hence, Rajesh moved the HC and argued that it is the only evidence, and he should be allowed to call for account books to verify his wife’s job as revealed in the video.

On the other hand, the wife raised a question on the veracity of the video and alleged that the video was morphed. On this, the HC said that the wife can apply to family court to get the recording examined by the Forensic Science Laboratory.

"If morphing is found, the husband will be in trouble, but the mere allegation is not sufficient. There are several other allegations regarding false evidence and information on record by the wife also, for that the husband may apply for perjury," the HC said.
