Legal News: Central Government to the Supreme Court of India: Mom’s-in-law can’t sue under domestic violence act

 

The Centre replies “No”, to the question whether the Mother-in-law can seek action against her daughter-in-law under the domestic violence act.

 

The affidavit that was filed before the Supreme Court of India on Friday on behalf of the Centre stated, that a mother or a daughter can invoke this law only against her son or brother and not against her daughter-in-law or sister-in-law, in order to ensure that the right of one women is not upheld at the cost of another women.

 

This means that the law against domestic violence can be invoked against a man not just by his wife or female partner but also by his mother or sister.
