petitioner/husband was acquitted. It was held by the learned Trial Judge that

the present opposite party could not prove the marriage between the two.

Court. Relying on the decision of the Hon’ble Apex Court in Samir Mandal Vs.

State of Bihar Another reported in (2001) 10 Supreme Court Cases 50, it is

submitted that since the opposite party could not prove the existence of marriage

proceedings under Section 125 of the Code of Criminal Procedure.

intimating about the next date of hearing upon the opposite party by Speed Post
