The victim has even shown his injuries caused by wife to the police. Read in detail below.

Gunjan has not only been suffering physically after these assaults, but he has been undergoing mental trauma as well. The father has also claimed that the son has lost his mental balance and his health has been deteriorated due to his wife’s cruelty.
Chaudhary’s in-laws, on the other hand, have alleged that their daughter (the accused woman) has been tortured since marriage.
A case has been registered after Gunjan’s complaint, however, no action has been taken in the case yet.

Often in such scenarios, even when police has evidence of physical torture from the husband, they tend to overlook the same by merely registering the matter. Arrest of a cruel and physically violent wife generally happens only when the act is extremely serious or in case of murder.
In all other situations, the man is asked to return to his home and co-habit with the same domestic abuser, because they call it ‘Ghar Ka Maamla’ (family matter). If genders get reversed and women even register a complaint without evidence, men and their families are arrested at once. Such is the nature of our Gender Biased Laws in India.
