petition submits that there are serious allegations against the petitioner.

petitioner since the marriage on 21.02.2010, till the filing of the complaint,
it is submitted that efforts were made to solve the issue by convening
panchayat. It is, however, not denied that the petitioner has appeared before

subject to the petitioner furnishing fresh bail bonds and surety to the
satisfaction of the learned trial Court. It is made clear that there is no stay of
