Several such incidents have emerged recently in which women/brides have fought against the injustice of their in-laws and have staged protests against them. Questions have been raised if delays in serving justice are the prime reason behind such incidents or if it is police inaction that is forcing women to take a stand and fight for justice.
In a fresh ruling, the High Court has asked Sumit to pay Rs 10,000 to his wife Tapaswini instead of Rs 17,000 per month.
There are clear indications that the series of court orders, along with the public humiliation by Tapaswini’s 44-day long dharna in front of Sumit's house, has hardened his attitude and made him even more determined not to give Tapaswini what is her due as a legally wedded life. She may stay in Sumit’s house as long as she wants, but is unlikely to win back the affection of her husband she appears to have lost for good.
Tapaswini further said in the video, “I really love Sumit and don’t want to malign him. I want Sumit back. I have nothing left with me. I have not changed and the same girl he (Sumit) loved earlier wants to stand beside him."
The sensational Tapaswini-Sumit marital dispute case in Berhampur witnessed yet another twist on Tuesday (Dec 21). The district administration has imposed prohibitory orders under Section 144 in Brahma Nagar for an indefinite period. The decision was reportedly taken after tension erupted near Sumit’s house following Court hearing on Monday (Dec 20).
