Why should a person create such a situation that a wife has to go to police station. 498a will definately break the family. it is the last resort. everyone suffers wife,husband and childrens their family. knowingly if the wife has taken such a grave step how much of the pain/suffering she must have undergone.
asking for child’s maintenance is extortion than what is the gifts presents and monetary help given to that girl.
happiness of child is what she wants.
