jurisdiction

occupation

Hi,

 

My wife filed 498a on me and my family members (parents and brother) in Bhopal in the year 2007, i was arrested at my office in Bangalore on Jan-2008.  After filing 498a my ex wife filed divorce case in Bhopal family court in the year 2009, which was dismissed because she didn't appear.

 Aug - 2012 i and my parents have been acquitted from the case. The judgement passed was misuse of 498a by my ex wife.  In 2011 i filed for divorce at Hyderabad on the grounds of cruelty and the divorce has been granted with a permanent aligmony of 3 lakhs to be paid to her. My ex wife and her parents stay in Hyderabad and i stay in Bangalore.

I want to know where can file defamation against my ex wife and her parents.

A Civil Action for damages for defamation has to be filed within 1 year of publication of defamatory materia. A criminal case on the other hand can be filed within 3 years from date of publication/acquittal.

Since a part of cause of action i.e your arrest which caused defamation - happened in Bangalore - Bangalore would indeed ahve jurisdiction, and since the impugned matter was filed in Bhopal - Bhopal has jurisdiction as it is.

The reason is , while you were working in Bangalore, you have been arrested  and the same has been conitnued in

Bhopal, thats why i told you to file in Bangalore and it will be convenient for you to moniter the case and also some times you have to appear before the courts for giving evidence etc etc.

The reson given another person, ie., assisstant of a lawyer, is for the reason that  the complaint has been filed in Bhopal.

You can choose the place for filing the defamation case.
