The Delhi High Court observed that the law does not permit a husband to take away his wife’s belongings, including her jewellery, without her permission. Rejecting the anticipatory bail application of the accused husband, the court said that no person can be allowed to take law into his hands.

Justice Amit Mahajan observed that the allegations leveled against the husband were not frivolous and therefore refused to grant anticipatory bail. The court said that even though the petitioner is the husband of the complainant, he is not entitled as per law to remove the household articles from her. It is not legal to do so. The court also noted that the husband has not joined the investigation and the articles have also not been recovered so far.

The wife had alleged that when she was out of the house, her household articles were stolen. In this case, an FIR was registered against the husband under section 380 of the IPC.

In another matter, the DMRC informed the High Court on Wednesday that the Delhi government refused to contribute towards payment of unpaid dues of the arbitration award to Reliance Infrastructure-promoted Delhi Airport Metro Express Pvt Ltd (DAMEPL).

The Delhi government has claimed that it is not willing to offer Rs 3565.64 crore as equity to pay the arbitration amount along with interest, according to an affidavit filed by the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC).

Attorney General R Venkataramani, appearing for the Center and the DMRC, told the court before Justice Yashwant Sharma that the issue was being actively considered by the authorities concerned. After hearing their submissions, the court listed the matter for further hearing. January 19 has been fixed.

The DMRC informed the court that it may raise funds through open market, externally aided funds or loans from the Government of India to meet this obligation. The court is hearing a petition filed by DAMEPL seeking implementation of the May 11, 2017 arbitration award.
