A lawyer from Mumbai in Bombay High Court argued in a domestic violence case that the woman had ‘many boyfriends’. To this, the judge objected to the and asked him to stick to law points.

A case about domestic violence was filed against a daughter by her mother in Mumbai. The case was taken up by lower courts. But the daughter wanted to leave the country in order to pursue higher education so she asked for the proceedings against her to be cancelled in a lower court. Hence the daughter petitioned the Bombay High Court to cancel the proceedings.

The daughter’s lawyer, Kenny Thakkar, said to the bench consisting of Justices SS Shinde and Manish Pitale that the daughter wants to go to Australia to pursue higher education which is why she wants to cancel the case under the Domestic Violence Act.

Advocate Takkar also stated that there is no evidence against her client in the Domestic Violence case. After this, the advocate representing the mother’s side opposed the plea. The mother’s lawyer then made a statement that slut-shamed the woman for having many boyfriends. The advocate said that the petitioner had many boyfriends.

To this argument, Justice Pitale immediately asked the advocate representing the mother to stop this line of the statement. He further said that it was the petitioner’s personal life. The judge also asked the lawyer opposing the plea to stick to points of law. The judge said to the lawyer, “What is this argument? It is her (petitioner) life… what is this argument that she has many boyfriends? Argue on law point.”

The court then said that the complainant mother should be happy as the accused daughter is going away from her for higher studies. The bench will announce its judgement on the 19th of April and has currently reserved its judgement.
