Summons to Accused 138 N.I Act

(Querist) 25 July 2009 This query is : Resolved 
Reaaly grateful to experts to spare few minutes from their busy schedulke to solve my query. If summons received by wife doesn't amount to valid service then every accused will use this to delay court proceedings.What is Apex court's view on this issue? Citations will be very helpful. Thanks in Advance.

In a case u/s 138 of N.I Act summons was been issued by M.M Court Mulund, Mumbai. On the date specifeid in summons for appearance of acccused he didn't attend and summons report showed that it was received by wife of accused.The M.M judge refused to issue warrrant against the accused acccused stating that as summons is received by wife its not a valid service and directed to make an application for fresh summons. This procedure will take another 1-2 months causing undue duly. Is there any judgement contradiccting this view of M.M judge?. Kindly state any citations. Thanks in Advance

It is better to make application for fresh summons.
Sujit J Pathak (Querist) 26 July 2009
If I make an application for fresh summons & once again the summons is received by wife of acused then M.M Judge will refuse to issue warrant under the pretext of invalid service of summons. Is there any judgement of Apex court or Bombay high court remedial in my case. Thanks in Advance.
