In a case of 498a and DV, the wife got her husband jailed. He was later set free on bail sought from the high court. At the same time a case of RCR was going on but the wife was not appearing in any hearings thereof. So the court went for the publication of notices in English and Hindi newspapers. By the order of the court alone the husband got the notices published in the newspapers. Mad on this, the wife and her family bribed the local police and in order to defame the husband and his family got false news published in a local newspaper.
The news was in short:
A former wife has reported that her former husband is emailing and texting her giving threats of murder and defamation of her and her family. The husband used to beat her with roads and used to come home late and drunk. He was jailed before and so is threatening the wife now.
In the above news, the wife's name and identity was kept secret while the husband's full name was used along with his address. The city is not a big one and hence a friend of the husband's sister told about the news published otherwise they would not know about it easily. This shows how the defamation of the husband was achieved by the wife without any fear of law.
The husband contacted the news agency which apologized and published another piece of news in the same paper stating:
The allegations were not supported by any evidence or proof and that an RCR was already going on in the family court. It is also observed that the husband is the present husband of the said wife and she is still the legal wife of him as they are not yet divorced.
However, the news agency did not mention the wife's name or her identity stating that they were forced by the local police to publish the news and that they learnt it later that they had made a mistake which they corrected by re-publishing the news to reflect the facts,
Is there a way to counter attack this wife and his family and also on the local police without whose illegal help this insane thing would not have been possible.
Please Note: The husband got the notices published because he was instructed so by the court. He did not do that because he wanted to defame the respondent. Whereas, the wife got the false news published just to satisfy the whimsical behaviour of her parents and of herself.
