The Supreme Court has refused to interfere with Bombay High Court order rejecting a Plea by Mumbai Police Commissioner Hemant N Nagrale pleading quashing of an application moved by his wife under the Domestic Violence Act, 2005.

A Bench comprising Justice U U Lalit and S Ravindra Bhat shifted the proceedings from a Pune Court to the Bombay High Court.

The Bench further directed the High Court to dispose her Appeal against the divorce as early as possible.

Furthermore, the Supreme Court also permitted the Police Commissioner Special Leave to Appeal against another order of the High Court dismissing his Petition pleading quashing of a separate Criminal Complaint registered by his wife against him.

Previously the Family Court in connection to an application submitted by the IPS Officer, in Mumbai dissolved the couple’s Marriage on February 25, 2011 but directed him to pay Rs 20,000 to her as Maintenance every month.

Furthermore, Nagrale’s wife filed a Complaint on August 30, 2012 in the Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate (ACMM) Court against him, two doctors and two nurses alleging commission of Offences punishable under Sections 498A, 323, 328, 341, 307, 504, 506(2) read with Sections 34 and 120B of the Indian Penal Code.
