498a victim (Manager)     11 March 2015

Cross-exam. of 498a complainant

Dear Experts,

There are generally vague & non-specific allegations in 498a chargesheet. During cross of the 498a girl & other witnesses,is it better to leave these vague allegations untouched or we should ask as to the particular dates of alleged incidents.

My case is at cross of the 498a girl. My advocate says that we should not touch the vague allegations in cross.Is it right .If we do not touch these non- specific allegations, would it amount to admissions of allegations.Or should we touch each allegation, though vague & general in cross.

Thanks.

You must touch all her allegations and proved your innocence, if you will not touch then it may be presumed that you are admitting all those allegations which she had made in her statements .

I agree with laxmi kant joshi. If you dont contest these allegations then it looks like you are admitting to it. It also sounds like you have a dishonest Advocate who has joined hands with the other side. I would reconsider changing him/her as soOn as possible.

I think not all allegation should be touched but only those under which you are charged.
