The respondent husband has filed an application under sec.9
of the Hindu Marriage Act for restitution of conjugal rights before
the District Judge, Sirohit, which was registered as Civil Misc. Case
Nobody has appeared for the respondent even after service.
Heard learned counsel for the petitioner.
On the facts averred in the application, it is submitted that
the petitioner is a lady and more so, she is having no sufficient
means to support herself and to incur the expenses for travelling
to defend in the case filed by the respondent husband at Sirohi.
It is true that the respondent husband is already coming to
Jaipur for defending case filed by the petitioner under secs.12
23 of the Domestic Violence Act and also the criminal case
registered under secs.498A and 406 IPC. In the facts and
circumstances of the present case, this is a fit case where the
court should look into inconvenience of the petitioner lady.
Looking to the distance between Jaipur and Sirohi, the
petitioner being a lady having young child and having no sufficient
means; it would be proper and just to allow this application for
transfer of the case filed by the respondent from Sirohi to Jaipur.
Accordingly, this Transfer Application is allowed and Civil
Misc. Case No.68/2016 (Mukesh Barad v. Smt Varsha Chayal) is
ordered to be transferred from the court of District Judge, Sirohi
to the Family Court at Jaipur.
