where the offence u/s 498A committed as alleged in FIR.

If partly committed both places both the courts have jurisdiction. But it is the choice of complainat where she wants to institute.

I agree with T.Pandey garu.

the most important point in a 498A case is where the cruelty/ harassment had taken place.  if there was no occassion for harassment either at in-law's place as you never resided there or at the place where you last resided and if the incident alleged in the fir is a fabricated one, you will win the case.  then why bother about the point of jurisdiction? let the other side do as many mistakes as they can.  it will help you in getting an acquittal.
