I am seeking advice for my friend's daughter. The girl is being harassed by her in-laws. She has been married for 5 years and has a daughter.
The girl recently on advice of her friends started to record calls of her husband, she found that in one of the recorded calls between her husband and his mother .... they are arguing and at one point the mother in law is saying to her son "kill her and dont come back to see me till then". The in-laws are staying seperately but the MIL controls her son a lot. Also further in the call when the MIL is saying "tell her you will give her divorce", the husband is also heard saying that he is going to leave wife and kid and never see their face.
This call is almost 1 & 1/2 month old now and another issue is, this call was made when the girl and the husband were visiting the girl's parents in Aurangabad. The girl, her husband and in-laws stay in Nasik. Now the girl and her husband are back in Nasik
So my questions are:
1) Can the girl file a 498a?
2) Where should the case be filed? Will there be jurisdiction issue since the call happened in another city?
3) Any other advice will be appreciated?
