ISSUE: This is a petition under “Right to information act–2005” regarding “Chief-Justice remark against misuse of Domestic violence Act 2005”. It has been noticed that girls are increasingly misusing the Domestic violence Act 2005 to settle score with their husbands and in-laws in case of family disputes. Since the “Domestic violence Act 2005” has been made in such a way that Husband can only defend the false charges. Even though it has been noticed that husbands are equally target of domestic violence. The remark of the Honorable Chief Justice of Karnataka made at a workshop is a landmark observation. In this regard I want certain information.
REQUEST FOR INFORMATION:
1. Has the observation of the “Honorable Chief Justice of Karnataka” been circulated to all the Honorable sitting Judges in Karnataka who are handling the cases under “Domestic violence Act – 2005”
