In this wonderful judgment, Justice Shri M.S.Ramesh has held that “The petitioner herein having chosen to invoke the provisions of the Domestic Violence Act seeking for monetary relief under Section 20(3), cannot subsequently invoke Section 125 Cr.P.C., for maintenance on the same set of facts and cause of action in view of my reasonings given above.” The cunning knife had her teeth broken and sent back for trying to manipulate and gain illegal benefits from Hon’ble Courts.
The government is equally to blame for causing such situation, whereby, a complainant is given two ‘options’ for same set of cause of action, under civil law itself. This is a clear case of aiding Double Jeopardy and needs to be dealt with iron fists of Judiciary.
