(3.)To understand and for proper examination of the case the FIR is reproduced as follows:
"....I am a responsible senior Govt officer at present working as Superintending Engineer and Adviser Engineering to the Govt of Assam and I am staying at Zoo Narangi Bye Lane No. 1. South, Guwahati-24. I have a strained relationship with my wife Smti Swabera Islam Saleh and she used to stay most of her time in her parents house which is situated at Bye Lane No. 1 (North), Guwahati-21 which has further strained my marital life. It may be mentioned herein that my wife used to pick quarrel with me on slightest pretext In order to disturb me mentally and since then we do mot have any husband and wife relation. On 26.5.94 when I came back to my residence from office I found Smti Swabera Islam alongwith 5 to 6 unknown persons present in my premises and when I entered my house I found all my movable articles/belonging missing and on enquiry Smt Swabera Islam stated that she had taken away all the articles from the house and have kept the said articles in her parents house. The value of the said articles would be around Rs 80,000/- to R.s.90,000/-, Smti Swabera Islam while leaving my house she forcibly snatched away the key of my Maruti car bearing No. AS-01-3224, and has herself driven away with the car. While taking away the car some unknown persons were with her and out of fear I did not protest; she and her said companions also threatened me with dire consequence. On enquiry I have come to know that the property (articles) and car which were looted from my premises are kept in the residence of Sri Mohibul Islam, the father of Smti Swabera Islam, a temporary resident of Zoo Narengi Road, Bye Lane No. 1 (North), Guwahati-21. I further beg to state that today at about 10 AM while I was about to leave for my office Smti Swabera Islam came with a Khasi lady who was armed with a lethal weapon to my residence and without any reason started ransacking my house (premises) and started throwing a few pots at me. Luckily it did not hit me and thereafter she left my house. I did not inform about the earlier incident that took place on 20.5.94 believing that good aense would mend her ways but unfortunately that did not happen rather she behaved violently which has caused great apprehension in my mind that Smti Swabera Islam and parents and her associates might come again to my residence and might cause damage and danger- to my life and properties. It is therefore prayed that your honour would be pleased to register a ease and investigate the matter and recover the looted articles/ properties including my car which are kept in the premises of Shri Mohibul Islam and restore the articles/properties to me and also protect my life and liberty."
