Detailed allegations have been made In the plaint in support of the application for divorce.

Immediately the plaintiff went to the father-in-laws place who started abusing him with filthy language and also gave a slap and asked him to get out from the house and threatened him if he tried to take away his daughter (wife of the petitioner) he would be murdered. Having no other alternative he came with a broken heart and extreme disappointment in a most pitiable condition.
