Growing tendency amongst women to rope in all the relatives in matrimonial disputes: SC

The Supreme Court (SC) was dealing with the order passed by the Central Administrative Tribunal (CAT) which has declined to entertain the pending recruitment of the Petitioner in Delhi Police on the ground that the Petitioner’s name has been surfaced in an FIR filed by his sister-in-law for cruelty against her. SC while setting aside CAT’s order noted that, in the charge-sheet filed, no evidence of involvement of the Petitioner was found and further that “merely being named in the FIR cannot be treated as an impediment for public appointment, unless the involvement is substantiated on investigation, specially in relation to matrimonial offence.
