A man and his father have approached for protection from the Delhi High Court after they allegedly received threats from his estranged wife and her family.

After listening to the petitioners’ counsels’ arguments, Justice Neena Bansal Krishna listed a hearing for the case on July 21.

The man and his father, both Najafgarh residents, claimed in their petition that they were being threatened by his estranged wife, her sister, brother, and sister-in-law, who had also made multiple attempts to forcibly enter the petitioners’ premises.

The petitioners asked for protection, a direction that no one interfere with their peaceful lives, and that the woman and her family, who reside in Dehradun, won’t harm them.

According to the petition, which was submitted by Advocate Dharmendra Kumar, the couple married in 2006; their two children reside in Dehradun with their mothers, when their relationships turned sore, the woman left her matrimonial home in July 2019.

The woman, according to the plea, filed a complaint against her husband to the women’s cell in Dehradun and refused to go back to their marital home during that time.

It said that the man also filed a divorce petition in Dwarka District Court on the grounds of cruelty. However, the woman filed a petition for transfer before the Supreme Court, and the case was moved from Delhi to Dehradun, and another plea is pending in a court here.

The woman and her relatives allegedly tried to force enter into the man’s home in April of this year in order to extort money from them. They allegedly used foul language and threatened them with dire consequences, including making up fake cases.
