The police have registered a case against a 34-year-old man after his wife alleged he was impotent and his family did not reveal it before marriage. The 28-year-old woman has asked for a divorce and demanded repayment of the money spent on her marriage.
The woman, who filed a complaint with the women’s police, said that she got married on November 19, 2015, in Noida and went on a honeymoon trip to Goa, when she discovered that her husband was ‘impotent’.
However, the couple returned and got busy with their work in Noida. “Earlier, my husband had a general shift and would come home by 7pm. After we returned from Goa, he started coming home late night, saying he is tired,” the woman said in the complaint.
A senior police officer said that the woman has been living with her parents for the last two months in Sector 12. She had advised her husband to consult a doctor and she was assured by him and his family members.
The woman has also mentioned that she was tense for almost six months, as her husband avoided a physical relationship. “After a year of marriage, I told my parents about it and they came to visit me. My in-laws assured them that there is nothing to worry about. His parents were also cheating me and they tried to stifle my opinion,” the woman said.
“When my parents came to pick me up, my in-laws again assured that he is being treated and that I should support him in this hour of crisis. However, my parents showed courage and took me home,” the woman stated in the complaint.
She alleged that her mother-in-law ruined her life as she did not disclose the truth. The complainant said that divorce is the only option to resolve the matter.
Anju Teotia, the station house officer of women police station, said, “We have not arrested the man. The matter will be forwarded to court for counselling. The case was registered on the basis of a complaint filed by the woman.”
A case has been registered under sections 498A (husband or relative of husband of a woman subjecting her to cruelty) and 420 (cheating) of IPC have been registered.
