Recently after an argument, my wife went to the police station. A police constable came to my house and took me to the station. After hearing my side of the story (and my showing my injuries), the officer registered a NC (not a FIR). Upon her insitance, she was sent to a "ashram" as she said that she was fearful of her life. However, later the same day she came back to our home. I reported her return to the police that same day.
After that we have been staying in the same home, but no in the same room. For my part I have refused to touch her, we don't have any children. She has expressed her desire to settle the matter amicably. In this respect I want to know the following:
(1) I want her to withdraw the police complaint and the NC. What is the procedure for doing that? What proof do I need to keep that she has withdrawn her complaint? Will it go against her (and hence in my favour) if she tries to file a 498a FIR in future?
(2) I wish to want her to admit to her actions (e.g. her injuring me, etc) in writing and signed manner. Will it serve any purpose? Is it advisable? Is it needed on a stamp paper?
