My wife filed a complaint that I attempted to kill her. The complaint was filed in a Police station related to my residential area. Section 307 was invoked and I was taken to judicial custody. While I was in Judicial Custody, she filed one more case (498A) against me and my family members in a women's Police station.
Some of the lawyers are of the view that filing 498A case in a second police station was illegal since she had already filed a 307 case. I was also told that both the cases can be quashed together in high court.
Please note that both were fabricated cases and the police have not bothered to request the medical report though the complaint was lodged more than 2 months back.
1. Please advice if both 307 and 498A cases can be quashed together in High Court in this scenario (Charge sheet is not filed till now for both the cases)
2. Can you please also let me know if the cases can be quashed in High Court if a mutual consent divorce petition is filed. in a family court
