According to wife who refused to reveal her name said that her husband called her 'second hand' because it was her second marriage. The exact date of the incident couldn't be confirmed.

The wife then filed a complaint under the Domestic Violence Act in the Metropolitan Magistrate's Court. She further accused the husband of physically assaulting her. The allegations made by the victim were seconded by mother and uncle. Now, the court has directed the accused husband to pay compensation of Rs 3 crore, find a house in Dadar, alternatively Rs 75 thousand for the house and maintenance allowance of Rs 1.5 lakh per month.

In a similar incident that was reported a month ago in Uttar Pradesh's Agra, a woman had approached the police after her husband stopped bringing momos for her. The dispute was resolved after husband promised to get her wife momos twice every week. During the counselling sessions, the husband explained that sometimes he would get late after finishing work. Due to this, he would not get momos. Sometimes, he said, he would forget purchasing momos because he was in a hurry to reach home. However, her wife remained adamant that she should get momos daily.
