ORDER

Date : 10-09-2019

Heard Mr. NJ Das, learned counsel for the petitioner.

The petitioner herein has been arrayed as an opposite party in the DV Case filed by the

respondent which has been registered as DV Case No.26 M/2018 and in the said case the

respondent/wife prayed several relief along with prayer for release of stridhan articles which

the leaned court did not allowed by its order dated 05.11.2018. As against the said order the

respondent/wife preferred an appeal under Section 29 of the Act before the learned
Page No.# 2/2

Additional Sessions Judge, Kamrup bearing CA No.184/2018 with the same prayer for

recovery of stridhan articles. Pending the appeal, the respondent/wife filed another complaint

vide CR Case No.6597/2018 under Section 406 with a similar prayer for returning of the

stridhan articles in her favour and in turn the learned court by its order dated 28.08.2019

took cognizance of the offence under Section 406 IPC and also issued search warrant for

recovery of the article mentioned in the complaint petition, with further direction to deliver

the article to the respondent/wife on execution of bond.

Challenging the aforesaid CR Case as well as the impugned order, present application has

been preferred with a submission that such subsequent filing of the complaint case on same

ground that too when the appeal is pending before the appropriate forum challenging the

order passed in DV case for not returning of the stridhan article, such a subsequent complaint

case filed by the respondent/wife is bad in law and liable to be quashed and set aside.

I have gone through the document annexed and considered the submission of the learned

counsel for the petitioner which support the contention raised in the petition that

complainant/respondent has filed the subsequent complaint case despite pendency of the

appeal on the same subject.

Let notice be issued to the respondent No.1 by registered post with A/D and usual process,

returnable by four weeks.

Till returnable date, the execution of the order dated 28.08.2019 passed by the learned

Judicial Magistrate First Class, Kamrup(M), Guwahati in CR Case No.6597/2018 under Section

406 is hereby stayed.
