The Borivli police have booked a man for allegedly slapping his wife, causing damage to her inner ear. The couple resides in a housing society at Rambag Lane in Borivli West. According to the police, the complainant sought to divorce her husband in April 2022. However, he refused to end the union. As a result of this, fights would occur continually between the partners.

According to the complaint registered by the woman, the couple had decided to take turns sleeping on the sole bed in the house. Around 1 am on Saturday, when the complainant was asleep on the bed, her husband allegedly told her that he wanted to rest there. The woman replied that it was her turn that night.

The police have registered an FIR under Section 325 (punishment for voluntarily causing grievous hurt) of the Indian Penal Code and arrested the man for injuring his wife. API Vishal Zhagde of Borivli police station said, “We have registered an FIR against the husband.
