Also he sent dirty msges Please.advice what to do.Mediation in lokadalat,appln for restitution or FIR with police Please.advice.
According to your statement, your daughter is not safe at husband's place. So we suggest that you should, firstly lodge a FIR at the nearest police station under section 498 A, and thereafter file a case under Domestic Violence Act.
Assuming you are Hindus,
If your daughter wants to stay with him then you can file an petition under Section 9 of the Hindu Marriage Act.
If she desires divorce then she can file divorce petition under Section 13(1) of the Hindu Marriage Act and seek divorce on the grounds of cruelty
If the behavior of your daughters husband and in-laws is very rude towards her and if she thinks that she can't manage and not comfortable in living with her husband and in-laws then all the options are open for her she can file a police complaint against her husband and her-in-laws. and if she choose to file a police complaint they themselves will refer your case to mediation center. your daughter can also file a case under domestic violence act and can also demand maintenance.
