SC upholds Srinivas' divorce, says he faced mental cruelty

While holding that Srinivas has proved his case of mental cruelty for seeking divorce, a bench of justices K S Radhakrishnan and Dipak Misra, however, asked him to pay Rs 50 lakh to ensure that his wife lives with dignity and comfort and not in penury after the divorce.

"From the foregoing analysis, it is established that the husband has proved his case of mental cruelty which was the foundation for seeking divorce. Therefore, despite dislodging the finding of desertion, we conclude and hold that the respondent husband has rightly been granted a decree of divorce," the bench said.

It passed the order on Sree's plea challenging the Madras High Court order which had upheld a family court
