The Delhi High Court, on Monday, February 5, denied anticipatory bail to a man accused of sexually abusing his wife. While denying anticipatory bail, Justice Swarana Kanta Sharma highlighted the troubling reality of marriages being distorted into a vessel for unchecked dominance and entitlement. "Embedded within this warped perception is a dangerous belief that the marital bond grants unchecked authority to the husband, transforming his wife into a mere object to be wielded at will. The portrayal of the victim as a commodity reflects a deeply entrenched societal mindset that views women as objects to be controlled, exploited, and disposed of at will," the high court said. The court observed while hearing an application by a man who sought anticipatory bail in connection with a first information report (FIR) registered against him under various sections of the Indian Penal Code (IPC).
