The annulment case filled by your wife under section 25 of the Special Marriage Act,1954 will definitely fail as the ground that she has given is absolutely absurd. The Marriage under the SMA is a process where first both parties give one month notice for marriage to the Marriage Officer who is usually the Deputy commissioner of the District. After one month period the parties appear before the Marriage Officer for marriage in presence of 3 witnesses the marriage is solemnised and registered. The allegation of the wife that she was made to sign the various documents/register etc. under the influence of some drug is absolutely absurd and most unbelievable story. The 3 witnesses, the Marriage Officer himself and his whole office staff was present when the marriage and its registration was being done and none of them could make out if the bride is under the influence of some drug. The notice period of one month itself is good enough time for calling off the marriage. The bride if not present or if present refused on the date of marriage , no marriage could be done. The bride did not oppose the marriage proposal, marriage notice, rather duly signed it with the groom, she went to Marriage Office two times at the gap of one month and her allegation that she was administered drug for making her to sign by the groom, just show the height of stupidity these people have while making such stories. I don't know what your advocate say in this case and how he's advising you. Such ground made by some idiot advocate shows the calibre that stupid advocate has for such absurd annulment petition. The RCR petition filled by you will be decided on merits based on the evidence of both parties by the learned judge.

If you want to keep your marriage intact and make her life miserable by not getting out of the marriage so easily, better to withdraw the RCR petition. If she files for divorce, her getting divorce will not be so easy as the ground of cruelty and desertion for more than 2 years will be very difficult for her to prove. The withdrawal of RCR will not have any affect as that never got decided by the court.

With all your narrations it appears that you want to quite her relationship but scared of being victimisation under any criminal case that she may file. I hope, you better contact a litigation lawyer from your side in person and who may contest your case befittingly.

IN MY VIEW YOU SHOULD NOT WITHDRAW RCR APPLICATION AS IT SHOWS YOUR DESIRE TO KEEP THE RELATIONSHIP. YOU SHOULD CONTEST THE SECTION 25 APPLICATION FILED BY YOUR WIFE AND GET IT DISMISSED. OTHERWISE THE FALSE ALLEGATIONS MADE BY HER MAY GET CREDIBILITY.

RCR notice is a time tested tool to compel wife to raise true/false complaint of dowry/domestic violence against husband with family including married/unmarried brother/sisters wit/without their spouse. This way husband leaves her with no choice but to spoil his family even if she does not want to do so.
This forum is full of such cases where husband with parents/siblings faced such criminal charges. After visiting jails people realise that the situation inside Indian Jails is not as rosy as shown in movies and the cops are also comedians in movies which is not in actual life.
