An woman in India has divorced her husband after he reportedly banned her from watching her favourite soap operas.

According to local press, a family court judge said that the husband had argued with his wife for over four years "on the ground[s] that she was seeing Hindi serials on TV channels", AFP reports.

The judge added: "The respondent was not allowing the petitioner to see programmes on TV as per her choice."

The man, from Pune, south-east of Mumbai, said that the couple's problems sprung from the "wear and tear" of married life. He has appealed the decision to give his ex-wife custody of their 6-year-old child.
