In a twist to a domestic violence case filed by a 26-year-old woman, the Pimpri court quashed her alimony claim after her eight-year-old daughter nailed her lies. The woman had accused her husband of torturing her and suspecting her fidelity. The accusations turned on their heads when the little girl said that she saw her mother sleep with another man in the house when her father was not around.

The woman had accused her husband of physically and mentally harassing her under the influence of alcohol. The so-called victim had lodged a case against her 39-year-old husband, his mother, his brother and his married sister. Barring her and her husband, all the others stay in a village in Akola district.

The couple were married on March 31, 2000 in Akola. They then migrated to Pune in 2003. The man managed to land a job in the industrial township of Pimpri-Chinchwad, while the woman started a beauty parlour.

Trouble started brewing between the two in 2010 after she started claiming that her husband abused her, suspecting that she was having an affair with another man. She even approached the Pimpri police on February 13, 2010 and complained about her husband. The police registered a non-cognisable offence.

The man’s counsel, advocate Rajendra Anbhule told Mirror that his client finally left home with his daughter. “His wife filed a divorce petition in the family court, in which she had not demanded alimony,” he said. Later on, she asked for maintenance when she filed a case under the Domestic Violence Act. “In reply to this, we submitted that the man came to know about her illicit relationship from their daughter.
On January 15, 2010, the man came home in the afternoon from office and saw a man in the house,” he said. “His wife failed to explain why the strange man was in the house when he was out. After this, my client moved out with his daughter,” he added.

When this fact came to light, Anbhule said she even filed cases against her own father and brother. “Her eight-year-old daughter had seen a man visiting her mother in the absence of her father, which we submitted to the court,” he said.
The case papers had the daughter’s statement in detail, where she even says that she saw the man lie on top of her mother on the bed but did not understand what they were doing. The court stated the woman’s application did not prove her case prima facie hence her claim of interim maintenance was rejected, Anbhule added.

The Section 125 (4) of the Criminal Procedure Code reads that “no wife shall be entitled to receive an allowance for the maintenance or the interim maintenance and expenses of proceeding, as the case may be, from her husband under this section if she is living in adultery, or if, without any sufficient reason, she refuses to live with her husband, or if they are living separately by mutual consent”. Anbhule said that now it was the responsibility of the woman to prove that she was not living in adultery.
