A man in Bengaluru recently appealed to the PMO seeking protection and claiming that his wife beats him regularly. The man recently took to Twitter and shared a picture of a hand bleeding profusely, tagging prominent Bengaluru commissioner of police, along with PMO and Minister of Law and Justice of India Kiren Rijiju.

“Would anyone help me? Or did anyone help me when this happened? No, Because I am a man! My wife attacked me with knife, Is this the naari shakti you boost about? Can I put a domestic violence case against her for this? No!”, the man’s appeal to the PMO read. The alleged victim of the domestic violence goes by the name Yadunandan Acharya.

The Bengaluru police commissioner Pratap Reddy reacted to the man’s tweet, and asked him to take to the nearest police station and seek legal action. Meanwhile other netizens rallied behind him, extending their support and further asked him to take legal course of action.

“Immediately file FIR with MLC. Don’t stop yourself. Don’t wait for justice. Fight strongly,” one Twitter user commented. “Please dont hesitate to file a police complaint against her. This is attempt to murder. It should not be taken lightly,” another also echoed the sentiment in the comment section.

The Facts of the Matter

The contentious Amber Heard VS Johnny Depp trial shed spotlight on the much needed issue of violence faced by men subjected by women. In India, gender-based violence affects as much as over 54% of married men, as per a survey of 1000 married men carried in rural communities of Haryana

Interestingly, while a man can be held accountable for abuse against wife under the Section 498 A of the IPC, there is no legislation that holds women accountable for such an abuse.
