I have a query regarding CRPC 257 withdraw of complaint.
498A is filed, expect A1 all others got Stay from High Court.
now the Complainent is has aggred to with draw the all the cases. her lawyer is saying no need to go to High Court for Quashing we can withdraw the 498a in magistrate court by using crpc 257. i am confused, pls guide me.
in 498A charges are not yet framed. still in appearence stage, only A1 is attending, since stay for others including appearence.
since 498A is compoundable in Andhra Pradesh, is is possible to with the the 498A in the magistrate court , without the appearence of all the accused.
pls let me know how crpc 257 works ?
