Present:- Mr. Rishav Jain, Advocate for the applicant.

Interalia in the application it is contended that the marriage

more dowry. The applicant had to leave the matrimonial home and start

residing with her parents. She has lodged an F.I.R. for offences under

Sections 498A and 506 IPC against the respondent and his family members

with Police Station Sadar Sangrur. She has also filed a petition under

Section 12 of the Hindu Marriage Act for annulment of marriage, which is

also pending in the Court at Sangrur. As a pressure tactic the respondent has

filed petition in question against her. The applicant having no source of

income, it is difficult for her to travel from her parental place to Patiala

covering a distance of about 65 kms on one side so as to attend the dates of

hearing there. Moreover, two cases between the parties are pending before

the Court at Sangrur, as such the application be accepted.

Notice of the application was given to the respondent, who was

duly served but did not opt to appear and offer a contest.

I have heard learned counsel for the applicant besides going

through the record.

Keeping in view the contentions in the application and

submissions made by learned counsel for the applicant in which I find merit

in absence of any strong circumstance to the contrary, it would be proper

and appropriate if the application is accepted, the same is accordingly

allowed. The petition in question is ordered to be withdrawn from the Court

of Additional Civil Judge (Sr. Division), Patiala and transferred to the Court

of District Judge, Sangrur for disposal in accordance with law. Learned

District Judge, Sangrur may retain the petition on his board or assign it to

any other Court of competent jurisdiction.

The parties through their counsel are directed to appear in the
