Act makes it mandatory to solve any problem within 60 days

VIJAYAWADA: The Women and Child Welfare Department registered two cases on Tuesday under the Domestic Violence Act, 2005.

A housewife Vaddipalli Sangeeta of Radhanagar in Paykapuram, lodged a complaint against her in-laws accusing them of subjecting her to physical and mental torture. In her petition, she said her in-laws were not happy with her because `she had failed' to give them a grandson.

In yet another petition, Jami Eswaramma, a resident of Masjit Street in Machavaram, said she was being subjected to domestic violence even after 20 years of her marriage.

She had two children.

Her husband, a railway (class-IV) employee, was an alcoholic.

She charged him with abusing her, beating her and suspecting her fidelity.

Project director of the department M.J. Nirmala, who is the protection officer, says a domestic incident report (DIR) would be prepared and copies of it would be sent to the police station concerned and the first class judicial magistrate.
