The 498a case was filed against my whole family members including me 5 years ago. Since I was abroad whilst the case was filed and also when the charge sheet was filed I was made absconded on the charge sheet. We filed the quashal petition in the HC against all of us and now the HC has quashed the whole case. The verdict states the allegations against my family members does not constitute criminal offence under 498a in the charge sheet and also on the FIR there were no specific allegations against them so, liable to be quashed. coming to mine, based on the jurisdiction crpc 188 the allegations were quashed. However, the judge has given the provision for the Police to obtain central Govt permission and proceed against me if they desire so.
So, now, the question is will the Central govt. gives permission for the criminal investigation abroad? Just to brief u my knife had filed a DV abroad before filing 498a in India which was closed due to lack of evidence in her favour in UK.
Next thing is from my parents side what could they do now? could they file any counter cases?
How do you think this quashal helps in my RCR application and does it work against her in her divorce petition (cruelty, desertion grounds) in any shape or form?
