My child hood friend and neighbour has filed for divorce case 3 years back and now her husband has filed a false PCR case aganist me charging Section 497 (Adultary case). Regarding the same when i approached lawyer - he said that it can be appealed at high court for squashing since section 497 has been overruled by supreme court in 2018. My question is
Article 20 of the Consitution of India resoundingly declared: "No person shall be convicted of any offence exccept for violation of Law in force of the commission of the act charged as an offence....." When the law is declared by the Apex Court as void, No Court in India can take ognizance of the offence as alleged. Yes, you may take steps for Divorce if adviced.
