Plz remember, DV is a unique law:
1) It rides on PRIMA FACIE vehicle! So...........a messile much dangerous........relief may be given in the 1st hearing itself..............even if thw lady does not have an iota of evidence!
2) It seeks relief simulataeously even if she has lodged sparate 498a, 406, GWA etc etc. Law says--- such a destitude lady be given immediate relief in the form of money, residence, child visitation etc etc. court should not wait for evidence....these things may come forward later on!
3) So if u have taken dowry, harassed her u will be PUNISHED under 498a but DV seeks no IMMEDIATE PUNISHMENT. Under this act, all she needs is immediate shelter, money, protection from further violence at her matimonial house.
So the cuurent scene given by u is very much plausible under DV act! CHEERS!
