Data on Cruelty by Husband and In-Laws in Delhi
Cruelty by husband and in-laws can be for many reasons ranging from unfulfilled dowry demands to unsatisfactory married life to petty arguments. Conflicts over petty issues can, sometimes, give rise to huge violent behaviour by husband or other in-laws.
Over last few years, we have seen an increase in number of cases of Cruelty by Husband and In-Laws in Delhi. 3045 cases were registered by Delhi Police in the year 2013 and the number grew to 3194 in the following year. The year 2015 saw a steep rise in the number of cases with 3536 cases registered in Delhi. This year 2016(upto 15th Nov) also saw a rise with 3294 cases registered as against 3057 registered last year during the same period.
If we look at the issue, practically and logically, we would appreciate that a girl who has left her home to join in-laws, would surely have some differences of opinion and will take time in adapting to new ways. In-laws must cooperate and be supportive and at the same time, the new brides should try to adapt patiently to avoid unnecessary arguments and conflicts.
At the same time, we encourage all our readers to inform Delhi Police about every petty crime that occurs around in our society. Every ignored crime takes a big shape and becomes a threat to our society.
