Denial of sex by spouse is cruelty: Supreme Court

 The Supreme Court has said, upholding a verdict of the Madras high court to grant divorce to a man.
Savitha married Keshav (both names changed) in April 2005. As Keshav was employed in London, the couple went there. Eight months later, they came back to Chennai. A few days later, Keshav had to return to London alone, as Savitha refused to accompany him though he had bought tickets for both. In September, 2008, he moved a family court in the city for divorce. Keshav said when Savitha was in London, she turned violent and hysterical frequently. Despite persuasion, she refused to consummate the marriage.
Countering his arguments, Savitha said she did not consummate the marriage as her husband wanted children only after two years. She asked the court to "restore the conjugal rights". The city court dismissed Keshav's petition for divorce.
