A bare perusal of the medical report would show that

respondent-husband would be unable to go to Ferozepur from Karnal to

pursue both these litigations pending between the parties. Further learned

counsel for the respondent-husband has stated that TA No.201 of 2016 filed

by the applicant-wife may be dismissed and CRM-M No.16746 of 2016

filed by the husband, seeking transfer of petition under Section 125 Cr.P.C.

filed by the wife from Ferozepur to Karnal be allowed because the

respondent-husband would pay actual expenses for journey to be undertaken

by the wife to come from Ferozepur to Karnal, to attend the court

proceedings in both these cases. Learned counsel for the respondent-

husband further submits that husband would be paying the travelling

expenses for the wife as well as one another person from her family, who

would be accompanying her from Ferozepur to Karnal, however, the travel

expenses should be either by bus of the State Transport or by the train.

After hearing the learned counsel for the parties and going

through the record of both these cases, this Court is of the considered

opinion that interest of justice demands that the petition filed by the wife

under Section 125 Cr.P.C. deserves to be transferred from Ferozepur to

Karnal and divorce petition filed by the husband deserves to be allowed to

continue at Karnal itself, however, subject to payment of travelling expenses

for the applicant-wife along with another member of her family from

Ferozepur to Karnal, as and when she would come to attend the court


Accordingly, TA No. 201 of 2016 is dismissed and the divorce

petition filed by the husband would continue at Karnal. CRM-M No.16746

of 2016, filed by the husband, is allowed and the petition filed by the wife

under Section 125 Cr.P.C. is ordered to be transferred from Ferozepur to


The learned District Sessions Judge, Ferozepur, is directed to

send complete record of the petition filed by the wife under Section 125

Cr.P.C. titled as Preeti Rani Vs. Arun Bansal to the learned District Judge,

Karnal, at an early date but in any case within a period of one month from

the date of receipt of certified copy of this order.

The learned District Sessions Judge, Karnal, is also directed

to assign the petition under Section 125 Cr.P.C. titled as Preeti Rani Vs.

Arun Bansal to the learned court of competent jurisdiction at Karnal for its

early decision. He is also directed to ensure that divorce petition filed by

the husband at Karnal as well as the petition filed by the wife under Section

125 Cr.P.C. are ordered to be heard on the same date, though by different

courts having jurisdiction, so as to enable both the parties to attend the

proceedings of both these cases on the same date.

Should there be any confusion, it is also clarified that on each

date of hearing, as and when the wife comes to attend the court proceedings

from Ferozepur to Karnal, the respondent-husband would pay the amount

spent by her on account of travelling expenses from Ferozepur to Karnal for

two persons on furnishing the railway/bus tickets and the learned courts

shall ensure that the requisite amount is paid by the husband to the wife on

the date of hearing itself.

With the above-said observations made and directions issued,

both these transfer petitions stand disposed of, however, with no order as to
