I have filed a 12(c) - Nullification as it was a forced marriage under duress of filing rape case and making video of me in a closed room admitting to marriage. I have all proofs which i collected in 6 months to prove that it was indeed done under duress, in form of audio, text, sms recordings. I have never lived with that women. I filed 12(C) - and she is response filed 498a. She is using it as a tool of negotition on emails to agree to mutual and withdraw 12(c).
1. Police filed 498a FIR but since police already knew that a case is filed in court under 12(c) and marriage was never registered, , was it legal to take a 498a FIR?
2. I have put Quash petition 482 in HC but date keeps on jumping and there has been no hearing even once as case is in pre-admittance state, can I somehow ask court to do a hearing for the same, if so how?
3. Can I seek stay on grounds that 12(C) was filed and immediately after 4 days a 498a was filed even though i wasn't in contact with her for 2 months ? I mean if a marriage is done case is pending, how can someone file a FIR if marriage itself is challenged beforehand?
Advise urgently according to expertise.
