please give facts of the case. Domestic violence (mental) may be continuing even after separation.

Are you separated from your husband? Why DV case? Clarify facts.
T. Kalaiselvan, Advocate (Expert) 06 June 2023
It's a continuous offense hence it will not be affected by limitation
Advocate Bhartesh goyal (Expert) 06 June 2023
Although domestic violence is continuous offence but on given facts no case of domestic violence is made out as why complainant kept mum for 16 years .She can't take undue advantage of continuing cause of action and it will be clearly abuse of process.
