Respected members, A case of 497 was registered against me in 2015. Now the case is in "framing of charge stage". The honable court issues date every month but the lady does not come to answer the charge and the court keeps giving dates. My query : (1) As the apex court has declared 497 unconstitutional, how will be the charges framed against me?
(2) Can i file a reversion appeal (the court has not framed charges so far as the case is in framing of charge stage )in the high court to get this case dismissed?
