JUDGMENT

%
JYOTI SINGH, J.

1. The present appeal has been filed by the appellant-wife seeking
to set aside the judgment and decree dated 18.07.2016 passed by the
learned Family Court, whereby the divorce petition filed by the
husband, who is the respondent herein, has been allowed and the
marriage between the parties has been dissolved on grounds of cruelty
under Section 13(1)(ia) of the Hindu Marriage Act (hereinafter
referred to as „HMA‟).

2. The necessary facts are that the respondent is a senior officer in
the Indian Air Force and got married to the appellant herein on
29.01.2006 according to Hindu rites and ceremonies at New Delhi. A
daughter was born out of this wedlock on 19.11.2008. The respondent
MAT.APP(F.C.)130/2016 Page 1 of 19
had approached the Family Court by filing a petition seeking divorce
on grounds of cruelty under Section 13(1)(ia) of the HMA.

3. The respondent had pleaded that the appellant herein was
reluctant towards her household duties and careless in her dressing
sense which was not expected from the wife of an Air Force Officer.
He pleaded that the appellant was very arrogant, stubborn and a self-
centered woman, who would get highly irritated on minor issues.
According to him, she would abuse the respondent and his parents and
would even get physically violent and had in fact hit him on a number
of occasions even on account of minor disagreements. He pleaded
that the appellant would do horrendous acts so as to cause
embarrassment to him amongst his colleagues and staff members. The
appellant would throw utensils and hurt herself by breaking glass
panes of the doors and windows. It was pleaded that even the parents
of the appellant did not intervene, despite requests to resolve the
issues. The appellant even threatened the respondent to falsely
implicate him and his parents in dowry cases in case he did not
succumb to her illegitimate demands.

4. It was alleged by the respondent that the appellant would often
fight with him till late hours in the night and not allow him to have
proper sleep which effected the discharge of his tough and onerous
duties, as he was a fighter Pilot with IAF. As per the respondent, the
appellant even threatened to commit suicide if he did not pay heed to
her demands. In fact on several occasions, the appellant would lock
herself in a room or would leave the house in the late evenings,
without informing him. The respondent claimed that on one occasion,

MAT.APP(F.C.)130/2016 Page 2 of 19
he was shocked when he discovered an undated “suicide note” written
by the appellant and the contents of which blamed the respondent for
the miseries in her life. This according to the respondent had
immensely disturbed him and adversely effected the performance of
his duties thereafter. The respondent also alleged that the appellant
had even concealed from him that she had undergone a psychiatric
treatment prior to the marriage and even after this revelation, the line
of treatment was not disclosed.

5. The respondent further pleaded that all his efforts to normalize
the relationship, more particularly, after the appellant conceived in
February 2008, remained futile. In May 2008, the respondent left the
appellant at her parental house as desired by her and thereafter, she
refused to return to the matrimonial home when he and his parents
went to bring her back. He pleaded that even when the child was born
on 19.11.2008, he was not informed of the same. He thus prayed that
the marriage be dissolved between the parties.

6. The appellant filed her written statement and denied all the
allegations levelled against her. According to her pleadings, it was the
respondent‟s family, who was never happy with this alliance and they
did not even celebrate any function or perform any customary
ceremony, during the first year of the marriage. She never received
any companionship, social or financial security and was ill-treated by
the respondent and his parents.

7. According to the appellant, the respondent time and again
threatened to divorce her and even asked her sisters to persuade her to
agree for the divorce. The appellant claimed that even during her
MAT.APP(F.C.)130/2016 Page 3 of 19
pregnancy, she was ill-treated and after she left for her parents‟ home,
he never contacted her or enquired about her well-being. After the
birth of the child, the respondent never visited her and all her efforts to
resolve the matter, by visiting the respondent at Hyderabad, failed.

8. The respondent filed his replication where he denied the
averments of the written statement and reiterated the contents of the
petition.

9. Based on the pleadings of the parties, following issues were
framed by the Family Court on 03.08.2011:

“(1) Whether the petitioner was treated with cruelty by
the respondent as referred to in the petition?

(OPP)

(2) Relief.”

10. The respondent examined himself as PW-1 and the appellant
stepped into the witness box as RW-1.

11. The Family Court, after examining the pleadings and the
evidence, came to a conclusion that the respondent had been able to
substantiate the grounds of cruelty and thus allowed the petition. The
Family Court found favour with the stand of the respondent that the
appellant had falsely denied having taken any treatment from a
psychiatric prior to the marriage. The contention of the appellant that
she never locked herself in a room was also found by the Family Court
to be belied on account of her own suggestion in the cross-
examination that she did lock herself in the room because of the
physical abuse by the respondent. The Family Court found that the
MAT.APP(F.C.)130/2016 Page 4 of 19
respondent was right in his allegation that the appellant used to often
threaten him to commit suicide. What also weighed with the Family
Court was the undisputed fact that there used to be arguments between
the parties at night which prevented the respondent from having a
proper sleep. This fact, heavily weighed with the Family Court, since
the respondent is a fighter pilot in the Air Force and his flying hours
commenced early in the morning around 5.30 a.m. These repeated
fights and sleepless nights led to a very disturbed state of mind which
not only endangered the respondent‟s life but was serious professional
hazard, risking the aircraft and the security of the nation.

12. The Family Court has also given due credence to the suicide
note (Exhibit PW-1/6). We extract hereinbelow the said note for
ready reference:

“By the time you receive this letter I would be
dead.

I am responsible for this suicidal attempt. I had a
word with my God. He told me not to hold
anyone responsible for what you intend to do
because its your decision.

Everyone knows, this whole world knows why I
did this and resorted to committing suicide. I do
not have a choice. My married life (throughout)
was very painful. I tried really hard to make this
relationship work but could not succeed. Tell
Nirupama and Tony‟ in laws that my last wish is
that their relationship with my sister should not
get affected after this incidence. They both are
very innocent girls. I know that Lal Duggal,
Aunt, Bikram and Ramjeet are very mature
people and so do Raman and his parents. Please
forgive me for what I have done but had
MAT.APP(F.C.)130/2016 Page 5 of 19
decided to stay alive also. I would not have been
able to stay without Aakash. I really love him.
Unfortunately it was getting difficult for us to
stay together. All I want to say is that please get
Lashu Tony married at the earliest. Make sure
that Bablu gets good education and please always
stay happy. Both of you please take care of each
other and I love you for everything that you gave
me.

Daddy, you take care of Mummy and Mummy
you take care of Daddy.

Take care.

I love you all (Mummy, Daddy, Sonu, Priya
Aunt, Lashu, Tony, Bablu, Tazo, Aakash,
Ramjeet and Raman)

Only yours

Bindu”

13. According to the Family Court, the contents of the note were
such that in case any untoward incident would have occurred, the
respondent could have been implicated for abetment to suicide.

14. The Family Court has also accepted the stand of the respondent
that the appellant was no longer interested in this matrimony and the
marriage was dead for all purposes. The Court has taken note of the
fact that the appellant had put her profile for matrimonial purposes on
various matrimonial sites apart from the fact that she had even
interacted with some persons who had responded to her profile. In
fact, what is also noticed is that the profiles mentioned the marital
status of the appellant as “Divorced”, “Awaiting Divorce” or
“Separated”. The appellant has not denied this in her cross-

MAT.APP(F.C.)130/2016 Page 6 of 19

examination and rather stated that she did not bother about them as she
was not interested in getting married.

15. Looking at the totality of the facts, which included the repeated
fights between the parties, the „suicide note‟, the profiles put by the
appellant on matrimonial sites portraying her marital status as that of a
single woman, the Family Court reached a conclusion that there was
an irreparable wedge in the marriage. The conduct of the appellant
clearly indicated that she had moved on in life and wanted to resettle.
Her conduct during the marital life amounted to cruelty according to
the Family Court and thus the Family Court allowed the petition of the
husband and dissolved the marriage by a decree of divorce under
Section 13(1)(ia) of the HMA.

16. Learned counsel for the appellant submits that the respondent
had failed to make out a case of cruelty against the appellant. The
allegations made in the divorce petition were general and vague. In
order to succeed in his evil designs, the respondent had hacked the
gmail account of the appellant and on account of which, even a
complaint was filed with the Police authorities and an FIR was
thereafter registered bearing No. 0961 of 2015.

17. The learned counsel contends that the appellant never initiated
any proceedings, civil or criminal, against the respondent or his family
except for the FIR of hacking her email account and therefore, it was
wrong for him to allege the appellant threatened him or his family to
implicate them in false criminal cases. She further submits that the
trial court has erred in laying over emphasis on the so-called „suicide
note‟ (Exhibit PW-1/6) and has wrongly made it as one of the grounds
MAT.APP(F.C.)130/2016 Page 7 of 19
for cruelty. The argument is that a bare perusal of the note reveals that
this was undated and was written by her to her parents and nobody
including the respondent was made accountable for anything. In fact,
the contents of the note, if read carefully, only reveal that the appellant
was trying to save her marriage and was expressing her love for the
respondent. The appellant had never attempted to commit suicide,
post the writing of the said note. The Trial Court failed to appreciate
that this was a private note which was never written with the intention
to deliver the same to anyone. In fact the respondent has himself
admitted that one day he had just found the note. The note had been
written by the appellant during those phases when she was depressed
and only to vent out her frustration. The note cannot be read in
isolation but has to be seen in the circumstances in which it was
written. If the appellant wanted to harm the respondent, she would
have attempted to commit suicide or would have at least sent the note
to someone, so as to implicate the respondent. The learned counsel
argues that in any case, the act of the appellant in writing the said note
stood condoned as the said undated note was written in October, 2007
but the parties lived together thereafter, had physical relations and the
appellant even conceived in February, 2008.The respondent in his
written statement in para 21 has admitted that he had condoned all the
alleged cruel behavior of the appellant and started taking care of her to
keep the relationship intact.

18. The next contention of the learned counsel for the appellant is
that in fact it was the respondent who failed to take care of her. Even
when she was pregnant, he had virtually deserted her. He was absent
even at the critical juncture when the child was born. All her efforts to
MAT.APP(F.C.)130/2016 Page 8 of 19
reach out to the respondent, to come back and take care of the child
went in vain.

19. It is contended that the respondent did not even examine his
family members to substantiate the allegations of misbehavior with
them, as they were material witnesses. He knew that he will not be
able to prove the allegations and the truth in favour of the appellant
would be repealed.

20. It is argued that the respondent has levelled false allegations
that the appellant did not allow him to meet the child. In fact, the
respondent himself never wanted to meet the child. He did not visit
the appellant or the child post the delivery and did not even come for
the puja in December 2008, which was organized for the well-being of
the newly born. The appellant in fact, took the child to Hyderabad, to
resolve the disputes in May 2009 but the respondent even refused to
see the child. The respondent during his cross-examination
contradicted himself as on one hand, he stated that he met the child for
the first time during mediation in December, 2009, while at another
place he stated that he met the child earlier in May 2009, in
Hyderabad.

21. It is submitted that the respondent had made a wrong averment
that the appellant was undergoing psychiatric treatment before
marriage and this was done only to cook up a ground for the purpose
of divorce. The appellant in fact, performed all her household duties,
supported her in-laws financially and paid most of the bills. Learned
counsel submitted that the allegation that the appellant had a careless
dressing sense was per se unbelievable because in the Air Force, there
MAT.APP(F.C.)130/2016 Page 9 of 19
is a dress code and nobody can afford to dress carelessly in any formal
function. It was falsely alleged by the respondent that the appellant
locked herself in the room. The counsel further submitted that the
appellant always attended all the family functions in the family of the
respondent, including the wedding of the cousins, for which she had
taken long leaves from her work. On the contrary, the respondent did
not even attend the wedding of her two sisters. She further submits
that most of the allegations of the respondent have, in fact, been
disbelieved by the learned Trial Court.

22. On the issue of matrimonial sites, learned counsel has
vehemently denied that the appellant had or has any desire to resettle
in life. She submits that even today the appellant is struggling to save
the marriage and is therefore, prosecuting the present appeal. She
submits that the Family Court has erroneously held that the appellant
had placed her profile on the matrimonial site with a desire to enter
into matrimony and had concealed her true marital status. Learned
counsel submits that the documents on the sites were erroneously
relied upon by the Trial Court, as firstly, these were never a part of the
divorce petition and secondly, these profiles were created by her
parents and siblings who were concerned about her future. She
vehemently even argued that in fact, there is a possibility that some of
her pictures may have been uploaded on the website by the respondent
himself as actually her email had been hacked. She was a victim of a
cybercrime. She submits that the appellant is totally focused in raising
her child and further studies and had no intent whatsoever to remarry
and thus there was no reason why the appellant would have created
these profiles.

MAT.APP(F.C.)130/2016 Page 10 of 19

23. Per contra, learned counsel for the respondent opposes the
appeal and supports the judgment of the Family Court. He submits
that there is no error in the judgment and the Family court has allowed
the petition after carefully looking through the entire pleadings and
evidence. He submits that the Family Court has rightly allowed the
petition on the ground of cruelty. The appellant had written a „suicide
note‟ which clearly implicated the respondent for her depressed and
distressed condition. He submits that if the appellant would have
actually committed any overt act post this note, he would have been
implicated in a criminal case. The learned counsel submits that the
respondent is a fighter pilot in the Indian Air Force. The nature of his
duties is such that he needs complete peace of mind, and a life without
stress or worries and adequate rest and sleep. The appellant by her
behavior, always created an atmosphere in the house by which the
respondent remained under tremendous stress and worries. His mind
was never at peace and despite his long working hours and onerous
duties, he could hardly get to sleep in the night. The learned counsel
argues that this kind of lifestyle in the matrimonial home had started
having adverse effect on the work profile of the respondent and this
was not conducive to his health besides being detrimental to the
Aircraft‟s safety and which could impact the security of the nation.

24. Learned counsel further submits that in the Air Force, a
particular lifestyle is expected from the spouse and any odd behavior
can cause lot of embarrassment in the social circle and could also
result in the seniors reprimanding the respondent. He submits that the
appellant would deliberately violate the dress codes and attend formal

MAT.APP(F.C.)130/2016 Page 11 of 19
functions dressed in a most casual manner. She would often lock
herself in the room for long hours or leave the house unannounced.

25. It is argued by the counsel for the respondent that the
respondent had specifically pleaded about the suicide note but there
was no specific denial to the same by the appellant and on the
contrary, in her cross-examination, she had accepted having authored
the suicide note. The Family Court, according to him, thus rightly
found that the writing of such a note was cruelty inasmuch as firstly,
such notes are not written without any threat to commit suicide and
secondly, the contents were such that in case of an untoward incident,
the respondent would have been implicated.

26. Learned counsel further contends that the appellant had made
serious allegations against the respondent in the written statement but
none were put to the respondent during cross-examination. Learned
counsel submits that making unfounded allegations against spouse,
which may have adverse impact on his mental condition or health or a
job prospect is cruelty as held by the Apex Court in the case reported
as of K. SrinivasRao v. D.A. Deepa (2013) 5 SCC 226, and the
relevant portion reads as under:-

“27. We need to now see the effect of the above events. In our
opinion, the first instance of mental cruelty is seen in the
scurrilous, vulgar and defamatory statement made by the
respondent wife in her complaint dated 4-10-1999 addressed to the
Superintendent of Police, Women Protection Cell. The statement
that the mother of the appellant husband asked her to sleep with
his father is bound to anger him. It is his case that this humiliation
of his parents caused great anguish to him. He and his family were
traumatised by the false and indecent statement made in the
complaint. His grievance appears to us to be justified. This
complaint is a part of the record. It is a part of the pleadings. That
this statement is false is evident from the evidence of the mother of
MAT.APP(F.C.)130/2016 Page 12 of 19
the respondent wife, which we have already quoted. This statement
cannot be explained away by stating that it was made because the
respondent wife was anxious to go back to the appellant husband.
This is not the way to win the husband back. It is well settled that
such statements cause mental cruelty. By sending this complaint
the respondent wife has caused mental cruelty to the appellant
husband.

28. Pursuant to this complaint, the police registered a case under
Section 498-A IPC. The appellant husband and his parents had to
apply for anticipatory bail, which was granted to them. Later, the
respondent wife withdrew the complaint. Pursuant to the
withdrawal, the police filed a closure report. Thereafter, the
respondent wife filed a protest petition. The trial court took
cognizance of the case against the appellant husband and his
parents (CC No. 62 of 2002). What is pertinent to note is that the
respondent wife filed criminal appeal in the High Court
challenging the acquittal of the appellant husband and his parents
of the offences under the SectionDowry Prohibition Act and also the
acquittal of his parents of the offence punishable under Section
498-A IPC. She filed criminal revision seeking enhancement of the
punishment awarded to the appellant husband for the offence
under Section 498-A IPC in the High Court which is still pending.
When the criminal appeal filed by the appellant husband
challenging his conviction for the offence under Section 498-A IPC
was allowed and he was acquitted, the respondent wife filed
criminal appeal in the High Court challenging the said acquittal.
During this period the respondent wife and members of her family
have also filed complaints in the High Court complaining about the
appellant husband so that he would be removed from the job. The
conduct of the respondent wife in filing a complaint making
unfounded, indecent and defamatory allegation against her
mother-in-law, in filing revision seeking enhancement of the
sentence awarded to the appellant husband, in filing appeal
questioning the acquittal of the appellant husband and acquittal of
his parents indicates that she made all attempts to ensure that he
and his parents are put in jail and he is removed from his job. We
have no manner of doubt that this conduct has caused mental
cruelty to the appellant husband.”

27. Learned counsel next contends that the intention of the
appellant is clearly to remarry and in furtherance of this she had
created profiles on the matrimonial sites. During her cross-
examination, she had admitted that those were her profiles and has in
fact, even narrated the complete procedure of activating these profiles.

MAT.APP(F.C.)130/2016 Page 13 of 19

He submits that the appellant admitted in her cross-examination, that
the mobile number which is mentioned on the profile (Exhibit RW-
1/PB) is actually her mobile number. She also admitted having
received responses from two matrimonial sites and she made no
efforts to get them removed or deactivated.

28. He, thus, submits that there is nothing remaining in the marriage
as both parties cannot live with each other and have decided to move
on in life. The marriage is practically dead and beyond repair. The
job profile of the respondent is such that he cannot afford repeated
fights, stressful days and nights and a disturbed state of mind.
Learned counsel submits that the marriage has been rightly dissolved
by the Family Court and there is no merit in the appeal which should
be dismissed.

29. We have heard learned counsels for the parties and examined
their rival contentions.

30. We have perused the petition filed by the respondent under
Section 13 (1)(ia) of HMA. We find that the averments and the
allegations made in the petition are neither vague nor general, as
contended by the learned counsel for the appellant. The respondent
has detailed the various incidents, which according to him amounted
to cruelty on the part of the appellant. He has referred to months and
years in which the specific incidents took place. In support of certain
incidents, he has also relied upon certain documents. Therefore, in our
opinion the petition is neither vague nor general. It is true that one
cannot make vague allegations in a petition, but it is equally true that
in matrimonial matters, the incidents cannot be narrated with
MAT.APP(F.C.)130/2016 Page 14 of 19
mathematical precision, day-by-day or minute-by-minute. In a marital
relationship, there may be several incidents between the parties,
which, as the time passes, may not remain in the memory with the
minutest detail. Moreover, the incidents/acts on the part of the
appellant, which have been relied upon by the Family Court to grant
the divorce, have been narrated in detail, including the month and year
in which they were stated to have occurred.

31. The respondent had made a serious allegation that the appellant
had been taking treatment for some psychiatric treatment prior to the
marriage, but the same was not disclosed to the respondent. The
respondent had placed on record a prescription by one doctor Arvind
Kumar, Senior Psychiatrist of RML Hospital and when confronted
with the same in cross-examination, the respondent had stated that
while she had not undergone any psychiatric treatment, but the
prescription pertained to her. In our view, the Family Court has
rightly held that this statement of the appellant belied her stand that
she had not taken a psychiatric treatment prior to her marriage. On
further analysis, the prescription in fact even mentioned certain
medicines, which were for anxiety and depression.

32. With regard to the allegations of the respondent that the
appellant used to lock her in the room, the family court had noted that
in the written statement, though the appellant denied the allegation,
but in the cross-examination, she had herself suggested to the
respondent that she used to lock herself in the room because of
physical abuse by the respondent. However, there was no allegation of
physical abuse in the written statement. This exposed the falsehood of

MAT.APP(F.C.)130/2016 Page 15 of 19
the appellant. The respondent had categorically averred that the
appellant used to leave the house when there were quarrels but, on her
return, she never disclosed where she would go. In the written
statement, the appellant never denied this allegation.

33. As regards the “suicide note” much argument has been
addressed by both sides. We have extracted the note above for a ready
reference. We may note that the appellant has categorically admitted
having authored the said note. While cross-examining the appellant,
the respondent suggested to her that she had written the note because
of the harassment and torture by the respondent and his parents.
However, there is no such allegation of harassment in the written
statement. The very fact that the appellant has chosen to author a
suicide note, wherein she has directly pointed to the respondent as one
responsible for her mental condition, etc., and also mentioned the
distress in her married life, lends credence to the stand of the
respondent that the appellant would often threaten to commit suicide.
In our view, the Family Court has rightly noticed that frequent threats
to commit suicide and writing a suicide note caused not only immense
mental pain and agony to the respondent, but also affected his
professional life, as he was an Air Force Pilot. This had in fact caused
a constant fear in the mind of the respondent that the appellant may
harm herself any time coupled with an apprehension of being
implicated for abetment to suicide. Keeping a person on tenterhooks
by threatening to commit suicide, is a very serious form of mental
torture.

MAT.APP(F.C.)130/2016 Page 16 of 19

34. The Family Court has returned a finding based on the
appellant‟s deposition that in fact there used to be repeated arguments
between the parties at night and the appellant sometimes used to even
physically prevent the respondent from sleeping. The averment of the
respondent that on several occasions he had to take leave due to
sleepless nights, has remained uncontroverted. The respondent had
also pleaded that during the pendency of the proceedings before the
Family Court, the appellant had started looking for another match as
she had put her profile on some matrimonial sites and had even
interacted with some prospective alliances. The appellant never
disputed that her profile was actually put on several matrimonial sites.
Her only defense was that it was her family which was responsible for
doing this and may be her gmail account was hacked. However, the
Family Court found that not only that she had admitted her
matrimonial profile (Ex.RW1/PB) on websites like,
simplymarry.com; jeevansathi.com; secondshadi.com, but that she has
actually received mails from these websites. The fact that the
matrimonial profile of the appellant was on the websites and she took
no steps to have them removed and rather responded to the
prospective alliances, only points to the fact that the appellant had
decided to remarry and move on in life. In fact, we also find that in
these profiles, the marital status of the appellant is shown as
“divorced”, “awaiting divorce” and “separated”. The defence of the
appellant that her gmail account had been hacked or her family had
placed these profiles, can hardly be believed. Surely, even if the
family had placed these profiles, it could not have been without her
consent or knowledge. No evidence has led to prove the hacking. In

MAT.APP(F.C.)130/2016 Page 17 of 19
fact, the respondent had also placed on record the Emails exchanged
between two alliances, namely, Bala Natrajan and Suraj Roshan. We,
thus, find that the Family Court is right in observing that repeated
quarrels between the parties was disturbing the state of mind of the
respondent.

35. We also agree with the learned counsel for the respondent that
being an Air Force Pilot, the stresses of the married life were leading
to a situation where the respondent had to take undue leave and even
otherwise, it was dangerous for him to carry out his onerous duties
with the disturbed state of mind. The respondent is also right in stating
that threats to commit suicide and writing a suicide note, was a very
serious form of mental cruelty. The apprehensions in the mind of the
respondent that the appellant may harm herself, particularly, keeping
in mind her psychiatric treatment prior to marriage or else, in case of
any overt act on her part, and the respondent would have been
implicated are not unfounded or baseless. We thus, find that the
appellant has committed acts, which amount to mental cruelty towards
the respondent.

36. The matrimonial profiles lend credence to the stand of the
respondent that the appellant has moved on in life. We find that both
parties have no intent of continuing this marital relationship. The
respondent rightly does not want to have any problems in his
professional life in the Air Force, on account of his marital discord.
There seems to be nothing remaining in this marriage and it is beyond
salvage.

MAT.APP(F.C.)130/2016 Page 18 of 19

37. In our view, the Family Court has rightly granted a decree of
divorce in favour of the respondent. We find no infirmity in the order
of the Family Court.

38. There is no merit in this appeal and the same is accordingly
dismissed, along with all pending applications.
