Producer has to give accommodation to estrange wife

New Delhi: Delhi Court on Monday ruled that city based Film Producer who has removed his wife from home a few years ago has to give her accommodation anyhow. Despite making several movies in Vernacular language Producer Sidharth Srinivasan came to limelight with his Hindi Film Pairo tale in 2010.

Her wife Divya who was earlier working with NDTV News channel as a Programme Producer had filed a case against him under the prevention of domestic violence act. In her petition, Divya Stated that She got married to Sidharth in 2007. Since the beginning of her matrimonial life, Sidharth and his mother made her life miserable. She even took a loan of rupees 25 Lakh rupees to help the husband for producing the film.

Divya challenged in session the order of magistrate court who decline to give her maintenance on the ground that she was already earning 68,000 rupees from the job. Court also refused to give her space to live in her estrange husband’s Grater Kailash home.

Special CBI Judge, who reviewed the trial court order found that woman was disallowed to give maintenance on the ground that she was earning handsome salary. Now she is unemployed and therefore she has liberty to file a fresh application before the trial court for maintenance.

Judge also disagreed with the magistrate’s finding that since the relation between the couple was not good and her husband asked divorce, it would not be a wise decision to allow them living under one roof as it may create a further problem between the couple.

Senior Judge said mother and father of the victim have died. She has no option but to live in her brother’s home in their grace. The court ruled that her husband has to give one room attached with toilet and bathroom in his Greater Kailash home to the wife. Magistrate court has liberty to appoint protection officer for the safety of the woman.

Earlier husband contended that Greater Kailash home is a disputed property between his mother and the family mother’s brother. Therefore Divya can’t be allowed to live in this property.

Judge said if the decree of the case comes against her mother-in-law, Divya has to vacate the home. In this case, her right is attached to the right of her in-laws.

The woman had also filed a civil suit against her husband for the recovery of 25 lakh rupees that she gave for funding his film.
