THIS PETITION COMING ON FOR ADMISSION
THIS DAY, THE COURT MADE THE FOLLOWING:
Heard the learned counsel for the petitioners.
Perused the records.
2. A perusal of the First Information Report
indicates that there are allegations made that petitioner
no.1 is the husband of complainant Parvathamma and
their marriage took place on 12.11.2012 and they were
living together as husband and wife and she became
pregnant due to the relationship. It is alleged that the
accused persons have illtreated her and harassing her
and the petitioner-husband has been threatening to kill
her and the accused persons were also planning to
perform the marriage of the first petitioner with some
other girl. When she enquired with her husband, he
again threatened her with dire consequence of killing
her. On the basis of these allegations, the police have
registered a case.
3. The investigation is at threshold. Though the
first petitioner has produced some documents before
this Court, those documents are not conclusive in
nature. They have to pass through the test of genuinity.
However, these documents could be placed before the
investigating officer for consideration for filing of
appropriate report. Therefore, at this stage, there is no
reason to interfere with the investigation when the
allegations constitute the offences alleged. Petition
deserves to be dismissed and is accordingly dismissed.
