Ms. Sayanti Santra
… for the State.
Affidavit of service filed in Court today be kept with the record. It indicates that the postal
article has been refused by the opposite party/complainant. The track report indicates that the door
The revisionist is the sister-in-law and accused in a proceeding under Sections 498A/Section406
of the Indian Penal Code. The other accused persons are the husband, father-in-law, mother-in-law
and the brother-in-law. Although some statements of alleged abuse are evident in the original
complaint against the revisionist, in the statement under Section 161 of Cr. P. C. produced along
with the case diary by the State, the only allegation against the revisionist is that she had
complained of misbehaviour by her husband to the sister-in-law/revisionist, who did not pay any
heed to the same.
This, according to this Court, cannot amount to any offence under Sections 498A/Section406 of
the Indian Penal Code.
This Court, therefore, is satisfied that even a prima facie case is not made out against the
revisionist, if one compares the complaint and the statement given by the de facto complainant
under Section 161 of the Cr. P. C.
In those circumstances, there shall be a stay of all further proceeding against the
revisionist in G. R. Case No. 3290 of 2014 now pending before the court of the learned Additional
Chief Judicial Magistrate, Baruipur, South 24 Parganas for a period of six weeks after long Puja
Let this matter appear in the list as “Contested Application” two weeks after long Puja
In view of the stay granted herein above, it is made clear that the pending proceeding
shall not stand in the way of the petitioner pursuing higher studies in India.
The petitioner shall serve a copy of this order on the complainant/opposite party.
