The sction is 211 IPC. The question arose because for the self same period, a FIR was filed in a 498a case by the respondent. The petitioner was acquitted in that criminal case recently. The evidence adduced in the 498a case is not only in direct contradiction to the pleading of WS submitted by respondent but also several false evidence (as established during cross examination) given by the respondent in the criminal case also appears in the pleading of WS of Mat suit. Moreover, the supporting affidavit of WS is faulty for which respondent has sought amendment under order VI rule 17. At this stage can the entire WS be amended & progress furher with the known contradictions, omissions and comissions?. Will that not attract section 340?
