5. In the light of the decision of the Apex Court in

Gian singh v. State of Punjab, (2012) 10 SCC 303, insofar as

the offences alleged against the petitioners are only offences

punishable under Sections 498A, 506(ii) and 34 of the Indian

Penal Code, I am of the view that this is an appropriate case

against the petitioners.

In the result, the Crl.M.C. is allowed and Annexure –

A2 first information report and all further proceedings pursuant
