Can Domestic Violence be made against extra-marital affair?

Domestic Violence against women's rights perpetrated by partners and close family members has long been a source of silent pain in the home. A domestic violence complaint can be brought by an aggrieved woman against any individual in a domestic relationship. To be included in the definition of the respondent, the husband's extramarital partner must either meet the primary purpose as specified in clause (q) of Section 2 or complete the proviso of clause (q) of Section 2 or must be covered by the provision of clause (q). Can husband's partner from his extra marital affair be considered under this definition as a respondent?
