has got divorce petition against her. The applicant being a young women,

office report has been duly served but he has not turned up to 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 The petition in question is ordered to be withdrawn from the Court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 District Judge, Chandigarh and transferred to the Court of District Judge,

Ferozepur for disposal in accordance with law. Learned District Judge,

Ferozepur may retain the petition on his board or assign it to any other

Court of competent jurisdiction.
