A Lieutenant-Colonel has accused his wife of assaulting him in the national Capital. Police said that a case has been registered on the basis of the complaint given by Lt-Col Ramandeep Singh at the Delhi Cantt police station.
According to the First Information Report (FIR), Singh alleged that his wife R Mahajan tried to hit him on his head with a golf stick and punched him over an issue related to the purchase of a luxury car. “When she hit me with a golf stick lying in the room, I tried to protect my head with my right hand. Luckily, because of this evasive action I did not sustain any injury on my head,” Singh claimed.
“Then she left the house with the children in a fit of rage. Later I drove myself to the hospital where the doctors diagnosed that I had suffered a metacarpal fracture on my right hand. A medico-legal case was registered by the Army Base Hospital authorities,” Singh stated in his FIR.
Claiming that his wife is short tempered, Singh also alleged that his wife had in the past also behaved aggressively and rudely with him and he has video evidence and recordings of the same.
“Till date my wife, who left for her parental home in Punjab, has not returned and she is threatening me with dire consequences and false implication in a case,” stated Singh.
Police said they registered a case under Section 325 of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) on May 6 and a police team is investigating the matter.
Mahajan is an Associate Professor at the Indian Institute of Architecture and Design, Okhla. The couple has been married for the last 16 years.
