TA No.255 of 2018 (OM) 
Class, Ambala; Petition under Section 125 of the Code of Criminal
Procedure which is pending in the court of District Judge, Family Court,
Ambala; Application under Section 12 of the Protection of the Women from
Domestic Violence Act 2005 filed against the respondent pending before
the Judicial Magistrate, 1st Class Ambala.
It is the case of the petitioner that the respondent has put in
appearance in all the four cases.
The petitioner is unemployed and is wholly dependent on her
parents. It would be difficult for her to attend the court proceedings at
Rohtak where respondent, husband has instituted petition under Section 12
(1) (C) of the Hindu Marriage Act.
Considering the facts and circumstance of the case, it is
appropriate that the petition under Section 13 of the Hindu Marriage Act,
filed by the husband, be transferred from Rohtak to Ambala.
Accordingly, this petition is allowed. The petition under
Section 12 (1) (C) of the Hindu Marriage Act, 1955 titled as “Man Mohit
Vs. Neha” pending in the Court of Addl. District Judge (Family Court),
Rohtak is withdrawn from that court and transferred to Ambala. The learned
District Judge, Ambala may assign it to a competent court at Ambala.
