What court said

“In the light of the aforenoted facts of the present case, we find that the conduct of the respondent (wife) towards the appellant (husband) has been such that it is devoid of dignity and empathy towards him… When such is the nature of one spouse towards the other, it brings disgrace to the very essence of marriage and there exists no possible reason as to why he should be compelled to live while enduring the agony of living together,” a bench of Justices Suresh Kumar Kait and Neena Bansal Krishna said, as per the NDTV report.

The court scrutinised the veracity of the allegations made by Kunal’s estranged wife, while highlighting the professional success achieved by him within a short span of time. The court noted that his success was indicative of his dedication and hard work, casting doubt on the credibility of the allegations levied against him.

The court reportedly concluded that the allegations made by Ekta lacked substantiation and were aimed at tarnishing her estranged husband’s reputation. The court said that such unfounded claims constitute cruelty and have a detrimental impact on his reputation.
