Asking wife to cook properly not ill-treatment: Bombay high court
MUMBAI: Asking one’s wife to cook properly or to do household work would not by itself amount to ill-treating her, the Bombay high court has said. The court made the observations while upholding the acquittal of a Sangli resident and his parents, who were accused of driving his wife to commit suicide in a 17-year-old case. The prosecution had claimed that the woman had consumed poison as she was ill-treated and she suspected her husband of having an illicit relationship with another woman.
“Telling the deceased to cook properly or to do her household work properly, by itself, would not mean that she was ill-treated. There is no further evidence to show that the treatment was of such a nature which would fall under harassment or abetment of suicide sections of the IPC,” said Justice Sarang Kotwal. The judge said that the prosecution had not furnished any evidence to prove that the man was in a illicit relationship. “The prosecution has not examined any other family member who could have thrown light on this aspect. In fact, these allegations do not travel beyond the realm of suspicion and therefore, none of the accused can be held responsible for the same.”
The accused, Vijay Shinde, and the deceased had married in 1998. As per the complaint, she had complained of being regularly scolded by her husband and in-laws for not cooking properly or doing household work. Hours before she committed suicide on June 5, 2001, the woman’s grandfather and maternal cousin had visited her matrimonial house and found the couple quarrelling. The grandfather had pacified the couple, but later received a message that his granddaughter had consumed poison. The HC pointed out that the complaint had been lodged the next day as on the day of the death the witnesses had not told the police about any problems.
“The trial judge has rightly held that the FIR was lodged as an afterthought,” said the HC, adding, “The quarrel, if at all it was there, was of not such a serious nature which would have driven the deceased to commit suicide.”

Marriage is a crime for men. Women keep filing false cases on men. Women can hit, use slang etc that time it's not ill treatment but husband not waging tail becomes a crime. Shame on such anti men laws. All men must unite against this misandry.

Internet in one hand and knowledge of a couple of English words have illusioned a lot of women that they are superior than 99% of the mankind and idiotic videos over the internet about "empowerment" has made the matter worse. Sadly, this has now crept in the pious institution of marriage where women want a royal treatment before, during even after they brutally assassinate the marriage but are not willing to do anything in return!

Many parents of girls dont teach them anything at home , manners, discipline, knowing to cook normal meals , and arrange the house etc. Both the husband and wife together had to do the work in the marriage but you will find many girls dont know anything or never did anytging at home and dont know even to make proper tea and how much to put sugar and so make the marriage a misreable relationship. Does the husband should not get even a cup of tea made by the wife properly atleast one time even if the husband does his own tea every other day. what nonsense this girls and the nonsense parents fighting for in the court for this type of girls brought by them without teaching anything and then they just grow up like animals.

Now make a law that at the time of marriage the bride and groom has to execute an agreement before competent authority describing the duties of each other with date fixed for physical intimacy to avoid any legal complications in future.

Women have magical charms besides their physical charms. Even after her death, the wife was able to charm the polish into arresting her husband and in-laws, who are innocent. Many people have committed suicides with out dragging their families or in-laws into judicial courts.

If Asking women to cook and do household chores is not ill treating than women demanding to build separate house with husband without in laws and demanding rich and well settle guy for marriage and expecting husband to earn more money for there family should not be ill treating as well...............
