Can wife seek compensation from husband's girl friend?

For justice and dignity

 

AHMEDABAD:

 

Can a wife demand compensation or maintenance from her husband's girlfriend under provisions of the Protection of Women From Domestic Violence Act, 2005?

The Gujarat high court is to decide on the issue after getting the first case of this type for adjudication.

The issue came in the form of a petition by one Jalpaben Padsala from Rajkot, who wanted the complaint filed under DV Act against her to be quashed. As per case details, a couple Meetaben and Gautam Akbari developed differences and began staying separately in 2002. Last year, the wife filed a complaint under domestic violence laws alleging that Jalpaben was her husband's kept, and she sufferred a lot due to their relationship. Hence, she along with Akbari should be made to compensate her and action should be taken against her as well as per the law.

The DV Act is a civil law, which provides that in cases like that of Meetaben who has sought compensation under section 12 of the Act, the respondents can be directed by court to compensate the complainant or to maintain her.

After a magisterial court in Rajkot began proceedings on Meetaben's complaint, Jalpaben moved HC demanding that the complaint against her at least be quashed. Her counsel Umesh Trivediargued that a woman can file a complaint against her husband and his relatives only. He submitted that Jalpaben was not a relative of the husband and, therefore, she cannot be made liable to pay to the wife.

The lawyer also referred to a Supreme Court judgement, wherein while dealing with a case of section 498 of IPC, the apex court examined who could be considered a relative. Even Gujarat high court, in June last year, quashed a complaint filed by a woman in Bhavnagar, whereby she sought to charge her husband's girlfriend for domestic violence under section 498 of IPC.

On the other hand, Meetaben's lawyer Krunal Shah referred to the Act and submitted that words "aggrieved person" is well defined in the law.

Justice R H Shukla admitted the petition with observation that the matter required consideration. HC has stayed the proceedings and scheduled further proceeding in the second week of the month.

the husband has already given a grand position to his k***,that she is almost like a relative.hence she must also be booked.

 

secondly,even if DV act does not recognize her as a relative,it must add this clause that the "other woman" must also be treated as a relative...

 

same clause must be added in 498A too...

 

why we indians are so rigid about making such amedments???

 

 

as of now,the very purpose of these 2 laws,ie,to give justice to the aggrieved wife who has been troubled by her husband's k*** stands defeated..


the keep will keep enjoying the rights of a wife,but the law will not be able to do anyth. for the wife....so all the crusading dun for the dignity of a lawful wife in all these decades by the feminists has gone waste...

 

these feminists kept filling buckets of water so that this water benefits sum1,but then they also kept pricking holes in them

 

so now all the water is draining out....hence, what was the need to fill all this water,when they did not want it to reach the deprived women????this is something which puzzles me!

@Zameer

can a wife punish his her husband under S 497??

A ke*p enjoys life after fights starts between husband and wife because of her.She becomes the other womanjust because of money.When there will be a provision to book her in such a case and when she will ahve to visit court  for such a shameful position of her owner's life then many women will learn a lesson before getting them engaged to married men.

Your version is strange because you hate wives only not ke*ps!!How can a man refuse to give money to his lawful wife but becomes happy when extorted by MIstReSS??
