Man asked to spend three days with each of his 2 wives

The directive has been issued by a Police-parivar-paramarsh (PPP) kendra, a police-family counselling centre in Purnia.

A man charged with bigamy has been asked to spend three days with his first wife and another three with the second one.

He will have to spend the remaining one day in the week with his old and widowed mother.

The diktat has not been issued by a local or higher court. The directive has been issued by a Police-parivar-paramarsh (PPP) Kendra, a police-family counselling centre in Purnia, around 375 km from the state capital.

Established in 2006, the counselling centre has solved more than 5,000 cases which could have remained in knots had it been fought in court.

But the latest incident has drawn more attention as the diktat has saved two families from being disintegrated.

As per the case, Rakiya Khatoon, the first wife of a local person Abu Shama, filed a complaint with the PPP Kendra pleading that Abu deserted her and married another woman with whom he had been staying.

She also claimed physical assault by her husband when she protested his second marriage.

“Two counselling sessions were held after Khatoon’s complaint. After that, we passed the order that Abu should spend three days with each wife and the remaining day (in the week) with his old and infirm mother,” Swati Baishantri, the founder member of the counselling centre, told local media.

During the counselling session, it came to light that the man married again precisely because his first wife never took care of his septuagenarian mother.

“By issuing such order, we have saved two families. At the same time, we have also instructed the two wives of Abu to take proper care of their mother-in-law, who is not only old but a widow as well,” she added.
