During the early morning of October 6, 2019, there was suddenly a lot of commotion in the city.
The woman and her uncle had arrived outside the judge’s house and shouted for him to resolve the situation.
Members of the woman’s family came with her from Faridabad and they stated that she was married to him in 2012.
However, he allegedly began harassing her in 2015 and this led to him filing a court petition for a divorce.
But the judge did not divorce his wife. Instead, he decided to marry another woman.
The woman explained that they have a five-year-old daughter together but he refuses to see her.
As the day went on, more locals began joining the crowd in an attempt to find out what was going on.

DSP Shamsher Singh urged the people to leave the area, but when they refused to leave, officers decided to take action.
Officers used a baton charge tactic to split the crowd up which was a success.
