My cousin is slapped with DV and 498a cases which are shown at Ecourt website.
I understand DV can be put but is 498a not necessary to be given to police and then they file or can it also be filed as private case.
Also now as 498a case is in Chief Magistrate court , will it be necessary to take anticipatory bail/ arrest stay ( as UttarPradesh ) from Allahabad high court or from the chief judicial Magistrate. Will police have any role now as case i believe is put as Private case where other party coming as Wife's Father and opposite party as my brother and his mother.
Please guide, He is tense as his mother is quite ill and will not be able to sustain and jail thing.
