My sister is being mental harassed by her ex-boyfriend 


My sister was in a relationship for 7 yrs and after that she decided to part ways with boyfriend due to some issues. My sister is being mental harassed by her ex-boyfriend. She was informed this in 2020 and after that asked him not to contact him. He visited my sister along with his sister and spoke to her for 5 hrs and my sister explained that she can’t be with him.  After that he has been sending messages to her again and again that he wants to meet and talk, which my sister hasn’t answered and those messages. There were messages from his family also. In these 3 yrs we have tried to tell the boy and his parents  to ask the boy not to call  or message her. After telling repeatedly and blocking him from calling or any social platform he has been messaging from different nos.  Also mailing from different mail ids. This has been affecting my sister's mental health and she  has been under stress as this boy doesn't stop messaging or mailing her and always tries to be in touch or try and talk to her. And try and do emotional blackmail. We  have tried to tell him that if he wants closure then he can speak in front of relatives but he insists he wants to meet her alone and talk.   Recently due to this she has been having health issues. After 3 yrs now it’s getting unbearable and we want to take legal action. Can we do it? We have kept all screen shots and some mail screenshots as proof.


You should immediately record a First Information Report (FIR) against her ex-boyfriend for the offence of stalking. Stalking is an offence under Section 354D of the Indian Penal Code. Your sister’s ex-boyfriend follows and attempts to contact her after repeated refusal and warnings.

You should also take legal action against him under the provisions of information technology act 2008 for messaging and mailing. If he has used any obscene or seductive materials then he has committed the offence punishable under Section 509 IPC and Section 66 of the Information Technology Act 2008.

The screenshots and copies of emails are relevant evidence to prove his crime. Take immediate action by lodging an FIR against him.

My age is 16 and I’m the only son. My mother died 3 years back and so now my father is going to re-marry. It’s a very tough situation, my father says that he’ll give the entire property and assets to my grandmother and then she’ll give all that to me when I’m old enough. Everything we own is ancestral property but then there is also assets like gold or silver. So is there any chance that my stepmother can acquire all that and push me out. I’m scared please answer.

Tenant has made substantial changes in premises without permission of landlord

I am writing to seek your professional advice regarding a situation I am facing with my tenant. Over the past three years, my tenant has not paid rent, and I am concerned about the legal steps I can take to address this issue. Can I terminate the rent agreement based on this non-payment?

Additionally, I recently discovered that the tenant has undertaken significant alterations to the property without my knowledge or consent. This includes filling a large cavity, which seems to have resulted from his negligence. He has also installed an extra bathroom, toilet, and kitchen on the premises without obtaining proper authorization. It appears that he neglected to properly fill the trenches used to lay sewerage and water lines, leading to structural damage such as cracks in the walls and ceiling. He has written that he has spent on filling up the cavity but has not given details of expenses. However, he is trying to link it with non-payment of rent.

Given these circumstances, the tenant is now requesting extensive repairs to the property. I would like to mention that the tenant is 90 years old, and all of his sons have their own residences. It seems that he intends for his grandson to continue residing in the property as a tenant.

I would greatly appreciate your guidance on the legal options available to me in this situation. Your expertise and advice will be invaluable in helping me navigate this complex matter.

Thank you for your time and consideration. I look forward to hearing from you at your earliest convenience.

P.S. How can I send the rent agreement cum compromise?
