Woman asked to rejoin husband at his home

A woman, who had deserted her husband, has been asked by a Delhi court to rejoin him at her matrimonial home on the ground that she has failed to fulfil her “marital obligations”.

The court’s direction came while granting a decree of restitution of conjugal rights under the Muslim Law in favour of the husband. The woman had stopped contesting the case and was proceeded ex-parte.

“There is no reason to disbelieve the uncontroverted, and unchallenged testimony of the plaintiff (husband). He has been deserted by the defendant (wife) on her own without any lawful reason and she has failed to perform her marital obligations,” said administrative civil judge Shuchi Laler.

The husband, a Delhi resident, had approached the court seeking restitution of conjugal rights, saying he had married the woman in March 2008 as per the Muslim rites and customs and a child was born to them.

He alleged that his wife’s mother used to interfere in their married life and in April 2010, she with their child left his house and went to her parental home. He added that his wife had threatened him not to visit her parental home.

Interim bail

The son-in-law of a senior Delhi Police officer, who was arrested in a dowry harassment case, was on Tuesday granted interim bail by a Delhi Court to sort out the issue with his wife.

Metropolitan magistrate Jyoti Kler enlarged the accused, who works with an MNC firm in Gurgaon, on two months interim bail on the ground that the couple should sort out the issue among themselves at a mediation centre in Delhi High Court.
