of the victim complainant.
The husband and the complainant are married for over 29 years. The
complaint has been lodged which indicates that the assault on the victim
occurred on a rather frivolous matter as regards the feeding of the dog in the
house. Be that as it may, the complainant was allegedly beaten up physically
that resulted in her hospitalization and subsequent recovery. There are other
previous allegations of physical assault by the husband as also the son of the
complainant. The husband is stated to have regularly beaten up and assaulted
the complainant. The son of the complainant after consuming alcohol used to
threaten and intimidate her on a regular basis. The mother-in-law of the
complainant admittedly resided with her another son away from the
complainant. Apart from the statement under Section 161 given by the mother of
