Shimla: A number of 'harassed' husbands from across the country today vowed to fight for their rights in conjugal disputes as they alleged that the law is favourable towards women in cases of divorce and custody of children.
About 150 such husbands, including former spouse of Chetana, wife of cricketer Anil Kumble, were present at the two-day meet that concluded here today.
The meet, where wives were strictly prohibited, was organised by Bangalore based NGOs -- Save Indian Family and Children Rights Initiative for Shared Parenting (CRISP) and attended by men from metropolis and other cities.
Strategies to take forward the movement for protection of men's rights were discussed here, CRISP president and Chetana's ex-husband, Kumar V Jahgirdar, said.
Jahgirdar, a stock broker, is fighting for the custody of his 14-year-old daughter in a Bangalore court.
