I wanted to seek your opinion about the Transfer Petition in Delhi in SC in the 498a case filed against us in the Gwalior, MP.
My wife used to work and live together with me in Delhi all the time after the marriage. I and my parents are on AB from Gwalior high court(Jun 2012) right now. The police has not filed chargesheet yet. I am working right now in Delhi and she is working elsewhere also in Delhi.
My wife filed the 498a case(Nov 2011) in her home town Gwalior. My parents live in UP and she alleged that my parents used to come to Delhi for demanding dowry. She was physically tortured in Delhi and on many occasions she was demanded dowry in Delhi itself.
Now to make the jurisdiction of her town, she has alleged that finally in April 2011 we took her to Gwalior on pretext of attending marriage function and abused, demanded dowry in “her home” in front of her parents. She has alleged that we left her in home in Gwalior until dowry demand is completed. She filed the FIR under 498a in November 2011.
I had earlier filed the divorce case in Sept’ 2011 in Delhi and she is attending that case in Delhi.
Her father is the influential person in her town and most of the crime according to the FIR itself has occurred in Delhi. We filed the application in NHRC earlier because her father’s goons were harassing us in the District courts in her hometown. The police is also highly in favor of her father and police is now serving notices to come to Gwalior for the investigation (they have already taken our statements 1 year ago).
Please suggest the strategy and chances in Transfer Petition from MP to Delhi in SC.
