Press Trust of India  |  Madurai 

The Madurai bench of the Madras High Court here today directed police to register a case against a man who was charged with not consummating the marriage after the wedding in 2011, on the basis of the complaint from his wife.

Justice M M Sundresh, disposing of a petition filed by the woman, directed the All Women Police Station Inspector of Pudukottai district to register a First Information Report as her complaint disclosed commission of cognizable offence.

The judge said the petitioner had stated that her marriage was held on November 7, 2011. But her husband had not performed his role so far, the judge said.

She also had stated that her husband was involved in homosexual relationship with an unnamed person. The efforts to solve the problem between the husband and the wife amicably through mediation and counselling did not fructify, the judge said.
