Women’s Grievances Redressal Cell & Mumbai Police Zone-X jointly celebrated  ‘International Women’s Day" at Tolani College, Andheri (E) on 12th March, 2012.

Family Court Lawyer Ms. Pooja Kute, Majilis was the Chief Guest and DCP Dr. Suhas Warke &  ACP Shri  Jaspal Singh Ragi, were the Guest of Honour.

Adv. Pooja Kute  explained that Sometimes, the mere fact of bringing the case to the police or the court can work as an eye opener for the husband. "When a case is brought to the police or the court, and the husband gets a call regarding his behaviour from these authorities, he himself starts executing the orders. Perhaps he may avoid his wife, or may control himself. It can make the husband more conscious and he may alter his behaviour,"

She also said that  "From the first slap itself, I think the issue should be addressed,"   Stop finding a justification for your
husband’s behaviour! The first step towards addressing the issue is to tackle it from the very beginning.

"There can never be a reason or justification for domestic abuse. Many a time even highly-educated women talk about having been a part of an abusive marriage, because they didn’t know it was so. Many women believe that that is what marriage is. But raising one’s hand on your partner is something that must be addressed at its inception," adds Pooja.

Head to a police station or to an NGO that will help you. However, it is unfortunate that various police stations and officers are
differently sensitive to such issues. "While some stations may write down your complaint immediately and try to work on it, others may pass it off as a family issue that should be handled within the family. I had a case where a woman with a broken jaw went to the station, and yet the police failed to note down her complaint. I think certain definite guidelines need to be set for such cases."

However, the primary concern is to make sure you raise a complaint. "If a case is extremely sensitive, women have the right to directly address the court via the Domestic Violence Act. There is no point in keeping quiet" says Pooja.

Keep your children informed: It is important to make your children aware that you are raising a complaint. "If you have a daughter, assure her that she should not bear any such thing in her own married life. Be supportive and tell your daughter that she can come to you if she ever faces such a problem." she says. Having parents who are concerned gives you the support you need to take the right steps.

Know your rights: Domestic violence is a major concern in our country and that’s why you must know your rights. "You can avail of restraining orders which will prevent your husband from bothering you at your residence or work place or from even contacting you over the phone," says Pooja. Also, in case you have suffered physical abuse, medical facilities are also provided.

Such rights are available via the court, and you can resort to them till the court reveals its next verdict.

DCP & ACP congratulated all the  women for this great day and also assured their best co-operation and help as and when needed.  Ms. Maria Ishwaran, Co-Coordinator Women’s Cell compeered this Programme. At the end Tea-snacks were served. More than 200 women participated in this programme.
