ORDER

This Criminal Original Petition has been filed to quash the

proceedings in C.C.No.8185 of 2010, pending on the file of the learned IX

Metropolitan Magistrate, Saidapet, Chennai.

2.It is the case of the prosecution is that the petitioner is A3 in

Crime No.277 of 2010 on the file of the 1 st respondent for the offence under

Sections 498(A), Section406, Section506 (i) and 294(b) of SectionIPC. The allegation as against the

petitioner/A3 is that the petitioner was working along with A1 in Veterinary

Clinic, so the petitioner/A3 instigated A1 to cause harassment to the 2nd

respondent.

3.The learned counsel for the petitioner would submit that there

was no such relationship between the petitioner and the petitioner/A3 and the

1st accused were merely a friends and they were working in the same

Veterinary Clinic. The 2nd respondent has given a false complaint. The learned

counsel would also submit that based on the allegations made in the final

report, no offence has been made out as against the petitioner.

as per the decision of the Hon’ble Supreme of Court in the case of “U.Suvetha

Versus State by the Inspector of Police and another reported in (2009) 6

SCC 757” the offence under Section 498A of IPC is held as follows:-

“In the First Information Report except at one
place the appellant has been described by the First
Information as “girlfriend” of her husband and only at
the end the word “concubine” has been used. The core
question which arises for consideration is as to whether
the “girlfriend” would be a “relative of husband of a
woman” in terms of Section 498-a of the Penal Code.”

5.Admittedly, the case is that the petitioner is not a relative to the

other accused. Hence, the petitioner could not be charged and proceeded for

the offence under Section 498A of IPC. Therefore, he prayed to quash the

proceedings in C.C.No.8185 of 2010 against the petitioner.

6.The learned Government Advocate [Crl. Side] would submit that in

this case all the witnesses have been examined and the case is posted for final

arguments on 21.08.2019.

7.The issues that have been raised by the learned counsel for the

petitioner has to consider only in the trial. This Court is not in a position to

appreciate these facts and does not want to interfere with the proceedings at

this stage and it is left open to the petitioner to raise all the contentions

before the Court below in the trial.

8.In the result this Criminal Original Petition stands dismissed.

Consequently the connected miscellaneous petitions are closed.
