Dear Mr Chaturvedi,
In a criminal case, when a person is summoned it means that on perusal of the complaint and documents before the court, the court is prima facie satisfied that an offence has been committed. Up till summoning order, the accused has no right to be heard however after summoning accused is heard before framing a charge (in warrant cases) and before notice of accusation (in summons cases).
I must inform you that the cases under section 498A IPC are non-bailable and warrant cases. Thus, you must take it extremely seriously. immediately hire services of a criminal Trial lawyer and ask for his advise about further course of action.
