I am 6 months pregnant and my mother in law keep on abusing me and tortures me non stop. This is not 1st time . During my first pregnancy as well she had done the same thing. During that time I moved to my mother's place as I was adviced complete bedrest. Now she has started again. The problem is my in laws are divorced and my father in law does not stay with us. She is in relation ship with a politician who is her boyfriend and he is still married man with 3 kids. Due to these fights my health has started detoriating. I don't know what to do about this . It's been 9 years of this torture. My husband is on my side always. There I have a support. I also want to know can I file a case against my mother in law if anything major happens to my health or the baby. She also tortures me saying that I am of low caste and my mother is a prostitute.

Answer 1

Domestic Violence Act, 2005, the Indian Penal Code (provisions concerning cruelty, causing hurt), SC ST Act, etc. can come to your rescue for filing a case against her. You should probably first make her aware of a possibility of legal action against her, if she doesn't stop, considering the urgency of the situation, you can accordingly register an FIR in the police station.
