can civil case stay be granted to defend criminal case

False 498a Victim

The opposite party first filled FALSE Domestic Voilence case and after 6 months FALSE 498a. The stories and false incidents mentioned are almost same in both cases. In DV case evidence of applicant is completed. No interim maintenance granted. In 498a charge-sheet is filled but no hearing happened as of date. I want to know whether I can contend before the Court, while appearing in Domestic Violence 2005 Case that, unless criminal complaint u/s 498A is finally decided and disposed off, no hearing should be commenced in case of Domestic Violence Act 2005 Case. The logic would be I do not want to disclose my defense during civil case and preserve the same for criminal case. I shall be highly obliged if anyone gives me supporting JUDGEMENTS or case-law of Supreme Court or of any High Court.


Pidit Pati,

Why to dwell on anything else make sure that civil case is dragged on technicalities and meanwhile criminal case is disposed off expeditiously. 

Best regards
