Complaint against forced divorce

The Commission received a complaint letter from Ms. Tsudenla of New Ministers Hill Colony, Kohima on 8th May 2017, for forced divorce against her husband Mr. Medovito Kirha, s/o Mr. Nosacha Kirha of New Ministers Hill Colony, Kohima.

In this, connection, Ms. Tsudenla requested the Commission for intervention and deliver justice. After having thorough discussion with the Legal Consultant and Members of the Commission, the Commission issued Summons to both the parties for a meeting on 20th July 2017 at the Commission’s office.

An inquiry under Section 6 of the Nagaland Women Commission Act, 2006 was conducted at the office premises with both the parties. Statements from both the parties have been recorded, and after extensive deliberation, the case could not resolve on the same day. Another time was given to both the parties to present their views on 24th July 2017.

The outcome of the deliberation on 24th July 2017 resulted in a mutual settlement between the two parties. Hence, on 25th September 2017 a lump-sum amount of Rs. 3,00,000/- as divorce settlement was handed over to the complainant Ms. Tsudenla, at the Commission’s office and thus resolved the case amicably by signing an affidavit.
