Dear Law Experts,
Need your suggestions on the below queries to fight my 498a case as it is completely fake and framed the FIR with incidents that never happened. Current status is charge sheet is yet to be filed and pending AB because of case moved to mediation.
1. A statement given in the FIR that "some gold, silver things given during marriage" - Is it possible to file a case on the basis of dowry given is crime? is there any chance of backfiring of this case?
2. Is it mandatory to obtain AB before apply for quashing the FIR? Also is it possible to apply before charge sheet is filed?
3. Is it advisable to file annulment case while 498a case is ongoing? If its fine, is it possible to apply while the case 498a case is in mediation and pending AB?
4. What is the purpose of mediation? While my family members attended mediation separately, no questions or discussions happened to the incidents mentioned in the petition. Is it possible to pray for canceling the mediation and request for AB?
