MY SISTER HAS BEEN FACING DOMESTIC VIOLENCE BY HER HUSBAND, MOTHER IN LAW, HUSBAND'S SISTERS AND THEIR'S HUSBAND. MY SISTER IS A PROPRIETOR OF A GAS AGENCY AND SHE MADE HER HUSBAND PARTNER. BUT AFTER A YEAR, HE HAS TAKEN AROUND 40 LAKHS FROM OFFICE. WHEN SHE ASKED FOR IT, HE TRIED TO KILL HER DURING HER PREGNANCY. THEY HAVE BEEN TRYING TO KILL HER SO THAT HER HUSBAND WOULD BE AN OWNER OF THE AGENCY. HE IS BEATING AND SCOLDING HER ALWAYS AND HAS ALSO DONE ANOTHER MARRIAGE TO GIVE HER MENTAL STRESS. SO PLEASE ADVICE ME HOW SHOULD I FILE A CASE AGAINST THEM.

Dear Client, 

You can file a criminal case under sections 498(A), 379, 307 IPC against your husband and relative of her husband. Since, he has married twice, so you can also file a criminal case for bigamy under section 494 IPC.

In addition to the criminal case as stated in the previous response, you can explore the option of filing a complaint under the Protection of Women from Domestic Violence Act 2005. This act is specifically meant for cases like this and allows anybody to file a complaint. The Protection Officer will ensure your sister's safety and the legislation allows certain financial secuirty also.  You can visit the following pages to get more information -
