A while ago, I blogged the story of the PMO official who was DV “Acted”.
Here is another IAS officer who finds himself the accused in a DV Act. I hope that more Babus and politicians get ensnared in this mess.

MUMBAI: Senior IAS officer Amitabh Joshi on Monday accused his wife of physical assault and torture. He claimed that his police sub-inspector wife should be held responsible in case of any harm to him.
Joshi, who is MD of the Maharashtra Fisheries Development Corporation, held a press conference sharing details of his troubled marriage.
Joshi’s charges were later refuted by his wife Veena Sawkar, stating she was a victim of mental harassment and violence allegedly by Joshi.
The IAS officer claimed he and his mother were being beaten up by Sawkar and his complaints to the police would not be acted upon as his wife belonged to the police force.
Joshi has been given police protection by the state. Sawkar said a complaint of domestic violence has been filed by her against Joshi.
