Resident of HIA 167, Rawatbhata, District Chittorgarh.


1. State of Rajasthan.

2. Laxmi Narain son of Shri Ram Singh Rajput, by caste Rajput,
R/o Dadabari, House No.4 N 9, Kota.

3. Shakuntala w/o Shri Vishan Singh Rajput, Resident of A-63,
Extention Scheme, Kota.

For Petitioner(s) : Mr. Vineet Jain.
For Respondent(s) : Mr. J.P. Bhardwaj, PP.

1. R/2 Laxmi Narain married petitioner on 18.05.1994. R/3 is

the sister of R/2. Petitioner alleged dowry harassment. FIR for

offence punishable under Section 498A IPC was registered. After

investigation the challan was filed. Laxmi Narain was charged for

the offence punishable under Section 498A IPC and Shakuntala for

the offence punishable under Section 498A/109 IPC. Vide decision

dated 15.07.1999 the accused have been acquitted.

2. Having perused the evidence I find that the petitioner

admitted having left the matrimonial house on 29.09.1994.

3. Learned counsel for the petitioner states that the petitioner

is not in touch with him. Unfortunately, none has appeared for

R/2 and R/3 and thus the current matrimonial status of the parties
(2 of 2)

cannot be ascertained by this Court.

4. Repeated notices sent to R/2 and R/3 are being returned

with the report that they are no longer available at the given


5. The reason for acquitting the accused is that during the

period petitioner stayed in her matrimonial house she did not

make any complaint to her parents regarding dowry harassment.

6. Good reasons have been given by the learned trial Judge and

thus, I dismiss the petition.
