Majors fight: Wife left with ear injury in Ambala


AMBALA: A woman major in the Army had her eardrum damaged in alleged domestic violence by husband, also a major.
The couple is posted at the Ambala Cantonment. The assault came on February 26. On Monday, the Ambala Cantt police booked her husband on her complaint lodged under sections 323 (punishment for causing hurt voluntarily ), 325 (punishment for causing grievous hurt), and 506 (punishment for criminal intimidation) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC).
The wife told police: “I got married to the major on February 14, 2015, and we have a 3-year-old daughter. For the past many days, my husband and I have a discord. On February 26, he took me to the court to see a lawyer. There, I came to know that he had come to file for divorce and had the papers ready. I declined to sign those documents and came back home around 1.30pm, where we had a heated argument and he started hitting me.”
The wife alleged: “The major slapped me many times until my left ear started bleeding. Then he left with his parents in a car and I rang up women’s police helpline. My driver took me to military hospital in Ambala Cantt in an Army vehicle. Doctor said my left eardrum had taken severe damage.” The Ambala police obtained the woman’s medical report from the hospital.
Her attending doctor told police: “She has moderate-sized central perforation with irregular margins and minimal hearing loss. She needs regular follow-up.” Ambala Cantt deputy superintendent of police Ram Kumar said: “So far, we have made no arrest.”
