After that the wife (petitioner) had moved the court for seeking divorce on the ground of section 12 (1) of HINDU MARRIAGE ACT 1955 and section 498 A ( cruelty to women ) of the Indian penal code 1860 .

But the karnatka high court quashed proceeding under section 498 A of IPC initiated against a husband by his wife for falling to consummate their marriage as he a follower of BEHMAKUMARI

Justice  M NAGAPRASANNA said “ finding no ingredients even against the husband , the proceeding if permitted to continue would degenerate into harassment ,  become an abuse of the  process of law and ultimately result in miscarriage of justice “,

The court said she can take divorce on the basis of hindu marriage act 1955

But no other allegation with regard to demand of dowry was made against the husband .
