Sc:any person can now be tried under domestic violence act

In Recent Supreme court judgment,[https://mynation.net/docs/10084-2016/] it is held that anyone can file Domestic violence case.

it means husband can file on wife ?

No, SC has defined the defination of respondent only and not petitioner so only women can file.

Yes, acc to J Nariman yes. Landmark judgement. Tuk tuk (auto ) is wrong.


Your thinking is wrong. DV Act is meant only for women, not for men. Sorry, you can't file such a case against your wife.
