Married woman are safer on streets

The Delhi High Court has opined that married women are much safer on streets than in their respective matrimonial homes. The Apex court made this statement upholding the life term awarded to a man for killing his wife in the year 2011.

The court dismissed the appealed filed by the accused who challenged the his conviction and sentence  in this case and also alleged that he is falsely implicated in this murder of his wife. The bench of justices declined the challenge and said, “More so in India, for the reason we find that the every tenth murder appeal we are hearing has the husband before us as the convicted accused. The victim is the wife. The place of the crime is the matrimonial house.”

“It appears that married women in India are safer on the street than in their matrimonial homes,” added the bench.
