Dear Qureshi sir,

if judge passes an order of 3 years than how much time accused will stay in jail?

  1. complete 3 years.
  2. total 1.5 years. (owing to day and night count)
  3. less than as in point 2. (owing to day and night count + some govt. holidays)

3 years means total day and night not that they will keep you in jail for day and will send you to home at night this is not a residential or a college were you can spend some time in jail and go to home remaining time 

you have filed a petition in the court to bar your mother from the 498a complaint and court will take all evidences were you have to prove your chances that the charges kept against you are false to come out clean
