3. That after the solemnization of the marriage, the

petitioner and respondent lived and co-habited
together as husband and wife at Patiala. From

born, who are residing with the petitioner.

4. That the marriage between the parties was

solemnized in a simple manner and no dowry was
given or taken at the time of marriage.

5. That from the very beginning of the marriage, the

matters without any cause. The respondent
started insulting the petitioner and his parents in
the presence of friends and relatives.

6. That the petitioner came to know that the

respondent is having illicit relations with one
Surinder son of Sardara Ram, resident of Barta,
District Kaithal (Haryana). The respondent used
to talk with said Surinder on mobile for long
hours and whenever the petitioner objected to

the same, the respondent threatened the

petitioner with dire consequences and openly
stated that she has developed illicit relation with
said Surinder to fulfill her lust of sex. It is
pertinent to mention here that the respondent
used to mix some substance in the food/milk of
the petitioner to make the petitioner unconscious
and when the petitioner became unconscious,
the said person Surinder used to come to the
house of the petitioner and they used to develop
physical intimacy with each other. Not only this,
the respondent also many times compelled the
daughter of the petitioner to indulge in such type
of illicit acts. The petitioner and his family
members many times tried to make the
respondent understand and to lead a happy

a photograph and recording to that effect, which
are attached herewith for kind perusal as

respondent to change her behaviour and to
discontinue her illicit relation with said Surinder,

8. That the petitioner also requested the respondent

that in case the respondent did not stop her
illicit act, the future of the children will be
ruined, but even then, the respondent continued

the illicit relation and due to which the petitioner

remained under constant mental agony, tension.

9. That the respondent never showed her interest to

lead a peaceful married life. The respondent
always refused to do household work and
sometimes even to cook to time meal for the
petitioner. The respondent made the life of the
petitioner a hell and the petitioner himself used
to look after and take care of the minor children
and to do household work at his own.

10. That the respondent was all out to create mental

tension and cause mental cruelty upon the
petitioner. The respondent openly threatened the
petitioner that she will live her life her own way
and if the petitioner creates any hindrance in her
enjoyment of life, then she will either get
eliminated the petitioner or will commit suicide.

11. That the petitioner even has caught the

respondent and said person red handed at
several occasions, but the respondent despite of
admitting her fault, filthy abused the petitioner
and threatened him with dire consequences.

12. That in the month of February 2017, the

respondent left the matrimonial house while
leaving the matrimonial children at home and
also took her belongings, Istridhan, gold articles
of petitioner and his family members and other
valuable articles with her. Since then, she is
living in adultery with said Surinder with her
parental village. Even, brother of respondent

namely Sonu, Monu sons of Raj Kumar, uncle

(Chacha) Shipa and said Surinder son of Sardara
are threatening the petitioner to eliminate him if
he interrupts the respondent to continue her
relationship and also threatened in case the
petitioner tries to take any action against them,
he will be killed by them.

13. That there is no relationship of husband and wife

between the parties. The matrimonial ties of the
parties are totally broken and there is now no
hope of the parties to reside and cohabit

14. That the petitioner tried to pacify upon the

respondent so many times and also convened
Panchayats consisting of relatives and
respectable persons so as to make the
respondent to understand, but the respondent
flatly refused and threatened the petitioner to
implicate him and his family members in false
criminal cases.

marital duties towards the petitioner without any
reasonable cause.
