They are also scrolling their social media profiles to get clue. The DCP quoted,
Chirag was working in Max Insurance in corporate sales and Renuka was also working with same entity in operations department. They don’t have any child.
From initial inquiry it was found that there were differences between the husband and wife.
We have always maintained that the divorce laws in India are so not practical and most couples feel trapped in marriages for life. There have been endless cases of couples murdering each other out of frustration, where the other may refuse to set the spouse free.
Marriage cannot be a chain for either man or woman, and if the two cannot live under the same roof anymore, divorce laws must empower either husband or wife to exit gracefully.
