||Suppose the two sides have not reached a compromise or settlement. Despite that, the wife wishes to stop pursuing 498a. Normally, when the wife approaches the HC with an affidavit stating a compromise has been reached, the court quashes the case. But here, there is no compromise, only unwillingness to continue with the case. Under these circumstances, how will quashing or withdrawing be allowed?
The case cannot be withdrawn if the wife is uncooperative. If the wife is not comming for examination or cross, then ask the judge to close her witness statements and proceed. Once the wife witness statements are closed, then the case against you cannot be sustained.
However, you can apporach the same court or file a 482 petition in HC and request the judge for a speedy trial.
P.S: Your wife is smart. She knows if she comes for cross, her lies will be exposed and she will face perjury proceedings and other counter cases against her.
