5. That the married life of your petitioner was most unhappy ever since and throughout the marriage as the said CB forced her to do all sorts of menial work in the house against her wish and desire and on failure or refusal thereof he insulted her, behaved roughly, habitually misconducted himself towards her and treated your petitioner with great harshness, negligence and cruelty, frequently abusing her in the coarsest and most insulting language and beating her at times violently with kicks and blows, sometimes with a cane, or with some other weapon.

6. That some particulars of harshness, neglect and cruelty are inter alia as follows:

  • That subsequently on the following evening, the said CB in his said house at ………… aforesaid, struck your petitioner with a violent blow on her face.
  • That on one night in the month of May 2000 the said CB in ………… without provocation threw a knife at your petitioner thereby inflicting a severe wound on her right hand.

7. That in the afternoon of the ………… day of ………… the cruel behaviour and mental torture of the respondent reached such a climax that your petitioner had no other alternative but to withdraw herself from and leave the house, and by reason of the continued cruelty practised on her she had to come also to the house of her father at ………… and since then your petitioner has lived separate and apart from her husband and has never returned to his house or had cohabitation with him.

8. That your petitioner never condoned any of the acts of cruelty of the respondent and in any event even if there was any condonation (which is denied) each subsequent matrimonial offence or misconduct would revive all acts of cruelty.

9. That there is no collusion or connivance between your petitioner and her husband with respect to the subject of the present suit.

Your petitioner, therefore, prays that this (Hon’ble) Court might be pleased to pass a decree of judicial separation between your petitioner and the said CB and also order that the said CB do pay the costs of and incidental to the proceedings.
