causing burn injuries. The marriage of informant was performed in

the year 2002 and from the said wedlock she has three children. She

had lodged a police vide Ramkrishnanagar P.S.Case No.95 of 2010

for the offence under Sections 498A, 323/34 of the IPC. The husband

of the informant had also filed a divorce case no.287 of 2013 before

Principal Judge, Family Court, Gaya. After institution of said case, the

ifnorant had lodged the present case only against the husband with

specific allegation. It appears that the name of these petitioners

appeared in supervision of Dy.S.P. which is against the material on

record as submitted by his learned counsel. The criminal prosecution

of these two petitioners in such circumstance would amount to abuse

of the process of the Court as the main grievance of the informant is

against the husband. There is nothing against these petitioners on

record particularly the allegation of torture and assault.

4. In view of above facts the criminal prosecution of

these petitioners cannot be sustained. The order taking cognizance so

far these petitioners are concerned is quashed and this criminal

miscellaneous application is allowed.
