Man legally answerable if wife sustains injuries in marital house, observes Supreme Court
New Delhi: A woman's husband would be legally answerable if she sustains any injuries in her marital house, a Supreme Court bench, headed by Chief Justice S A Bobde, observed on Monday.
The Supreme Court bench made the observation while hearing a pre-arrest bail plea filed by a man, booked for allegedly assaulting his wife. The accused moved to the apex court after the Punjab and Haryana High Court rejected his anticipatory bail application.
As per reports, the couple got married in 2018 and has a child.
