DV Act is essentially for protection of women from the violence by husband and those other male members of the family who involved in violence in some way or the other.  Husband's mother can also be charged for her involvement along with  or besides her son in the violence.  There is no bar.  Even her own father can also be proceeded against in terms of the DV Act.  It all depends on the facts of events.  As Kapoor Deepak sir said even a far off place resident can also subject the aggrieved woman to violence indirectly and there need not be immediate physical presence.   If violence proceeds from the charged it is encough.
