The applicant wife had approached the Court under Section 12 of the Protection of Women from Domestic Violence Act, 2005 alleging that Singh and his family members were brash and violent towards her and that Singh has a history of criminal intimidation, hurt, brutal violence towards people who do not give into his demands.
Previously, Court had directed Singh to appear before it for the proceedings following which he was present along with his lawyers today in the Tis Hazari Court.
The Court also said that the previous interim orders restraining him from disposing off his jointly owned property, stridhan owned by his wife, etc will continue in the matter.
The wife had alleged that she was living under a constant fear as the respondents have threatened her of physical harm.
"The Respondent No. 1, 2, 3 & 4 colluded and mentally, physically, emotionally, economically, sexually assaulted the Applicant.

The Applicant has suffered immense pain and hurt from the respondents throughout the marriage," the plea read.
