The court heard a Matrimonial dispute case in which the husband was seeking a divorce from his wife on the grounds of cruelty for the last 20 years which was opposed by his wife. Amongst this, their son was caught in this battle, and he was traumatized by his mother from seven years of age. The husband approached the Hon’ble Supreme Court for matrimonial dispute under article 142 of the Indian Constitution after being unsuccessful before the Trial Court and High Court.
The counsel for the mother requested to be allowed to talk to her son once. But when her son appeared in person, he declined to talk. Hon’ble Mr. Justice DY Chandrachud attempted a reconciliation for the same by saying ‘she is your mother na, speak to her.’
But then the son explained the traumatic phase that he suffered due to his mother, he said ‘it brings back traumatic memories. I used to be locked in the washroom and beaten up. I am not a parent, but this is not the way to raise a child. I used to be beaten so much. I was only seven years old. My father never raised a finger on me.’

The counsel appearing on behalf of the mother declined all the claims made by the son alleging them to be a kind of scripted tale. To this, the Court opined that a 27-year-old man cannot narrate a scripted tale or cannot be manipulated in this manner.
The learned judges for the case told the son to act as a bridge between his parents but the son declined to reconcile with his mother. The bench has now given a one-month time to the parents and the son and after a month the hearing will resume.
