CRIMINAL PETITION No.173 of 2012
Petitioners approached this Court invoking the provisions under Section 482 Cr.P.C. seeking to quash the proceedings against them in D.V.C.No.48 of 2011 on the file of the Additional Judicial First Class Magistrate, Sangareddy, Medak District.
2. Heard both sides.
3. The complainant approached the Court below seeking certain reliefs under the provisions of Prevention of Women from Domestic Violence Act. The petitioners herein are the husband, parents-in-law, brother-in-law and sister-in-law of the de factocomplainant. There are some allegations against the petitioners herein, which are to be decided at the time of trial only. Hence, this Court is not inclined to interfere with the proceedings in D.V.C. against the petitioners at this stage.
4. In any event, taking into consideration the nature of allegations wherein the question of identity of the accused does not arise, the appearance of the petitioners before the trial Court is dispensed with except on the dates the learned trial Judge insists for the same and the petitioners shall be properly represented through their counsel.
5. With the above observation, the criminal petition is disposed of. Miscellaneous petitions filed in this criminal petition, if any, shall stand closed.
