Highly valuable advice from Mr. Kalaiselvan. In a domestic violence, the violence happens within the four walls and it is not expected in houses, CCTVs are installed or when verbal abuse comes through, the victim will start to record those things. If, presuming that she attempts to do, it will become one more reason for the fret husband to exacerbate his aggression. In a domestic relationship, a victim spouse always tries to take such steps which will pacify the perennial petulant pugancious partner. So he/she will never dream of installing the CCTV or video or audio recording the events which may pave the way for perdition.
The domestic violence Act has expanded the meaning of cruelty. It may be physical, verbal, economical and psychological. Most of them cannot be proved by way of occult evidence and audio evidence. The problem further accentuates because these things happen within the cocoon of bed-room.
Then, to prove these atrocities, the victim wife has to file a detailed affidavit giving the vivid descripttion of the incident along with time and date. When she is cross examined, she does not flinch to reiterate what she said in affidavit. Her general bearing and comport and demeanour would tell the judge the veracity of the facts she mentioned in her affidavit. The judges, who sit there, have vast experience and it is their daily job to see the tricksters, beguiles and honest persons. Even though they won't tell who is wrong and who is right, but by a look they know that who is guilty and shifty. So, if you are honest, you need not worry. In addition to the own affidavit, the victim also can bring the witnesses to whom she narrated her woes during her matrimonial life.
