A single judge bench of MP High Court held as follows, relying on Reema Aggarwal decision here
From Para 9,
Abhishek Singh Vs State of M.P. on 26 Dec 2022
9. Though it is an admitted position that complainant/respondent No.4 was already married and had a living spouse, when she contracted the second marriage with petitioner, however, there is no indication of word ‘valid marriage’ in Section 498-A of I.P.C. The language used therein is ‘husband or relative of husband’. These words not only rope in those who are validly married but also anyone who has undergone some or other form of marriage and thereby assumed for himself the position of husband.
