Supreme Court has said that a husband would be primarily liable for the injuries inflicted on a woman at a matrimonial home even if these were caused by the relatives. SC denied pre-arrest bail to a man accused of assaulting his spouse. It was the man’s third marriage and the woman’s second. A year after the marriage, a child was born to them in 2018. In June last year, she lodged a complaint with Ludhiana police against her husband and in-laws after an alleged brutal assault on her by the husband, father-in-law and mother-in-law, accusing her of not meeting their growing dowry demands.
