A city man was ordered by a Delhi court to pay R8,000 as monthly compensation to his wife, who was allegedly turned out of the house by him after nearly 33 years of their marriage.

Metropolitan magistrate Monika Saroha ordered compensation for the woman, expressing surprise that the woman, married in 1978 and allegedly turned out of the house by her husband in 2010, did not raise voice against any violence in the past 33 years.

"It is little surprising that after almost 33 years of marriage, this is the first time the complainant (woman) has ever raised her voice against any violence being committed by the respondent (man),” the court said. PTI
