In 498a, 406 , 506, 34 case only wife deposed and stood for Cross examination.
All other witnesses - Wife's mother , father , sister , wife friend and neighbours all refused to come as witness and now only Investigation Officer will be called.
All witnesses had given false statements and when cross of wife was over and Juge made a stern remark that was this case just for harrassment , it seems they have backed down.
Can i put defamation case on these witnesses after my aquital from the above case?
Also one more query:
IO has been transferred to far off location and may not come....then will someone else come from police station or the same IO has to come? Generally how many chances IO will be given to appear in the said case.
