THE HONOURABLE SRI JUSTICERAJA ELANGO
CRIMINAL PETITION No.256 OF 2012
The petitioners/Accused Nos.2 to 5 approached this Court with a prayer to quash the proceedings initiated against them in Crime No.3 of 2011 of CID Police Station, Hyderabad, registered for the offences punishable under Sections 498-A and 406 IPC.
On a perusal of the records, it is seen that there are some allegations against the petitioners herein. But at the same time, since the offences arose out of matrimonial disputes, this Court is of the view that if the petitioners are arrested, it may cause prejudice in case there is any proposal for settlement between the parties in future.
Hence, the investigating officer is directed to complete the investigation of the case without arresting the petitioners herein.
The Criminal Petition is accordingly disposed of.
The miscellaneous petitions, if any, pending in this criminal petition shall stand closed.
