Upholding a 35-year-old man's conviction for assaulting his wife, the Bombay High Court has said the wife's refusal to make tea for husband could not be accepted as provocation for him to assault her, and observed that wife is "not a chattel or an object". In an order passed earlier this month, Justice Revati Mohite Dere said "marriage, ideally, is a partnership based on equality".
