(1.) By means of this petition, moved under Section 482
Cr.P.C., a prayer has been advanced to quash the chargesheet
No.80 of 2007, pertaining to crime no.17 of 2007, P.S. Kotwali
Roorkee, District Haridwar. On the submission of chargesheet,
a criminal case no.1746 of 2007, State Vs. Ashok Kumar and
two others was registered by the Judicial Magistrate, Roorkee
and the prayer has been made to quash the entire proceedings
of the said criminal complaint case too.
(2.) The facts, sans unnecessary details, are that respondent
no.2-Smt. Rajni Panchal, R/o Roorkee, District Haridwar
espoused with petitioner Ashok Kumar on 22.11.2004.
Petitioner No.1- Ashok Kumar and all his family members are
resident of New Seemapuri, Shalimar Garden, Ghaziabad or of
New Delhi. Needless to say that the boundaries of both the
places are adjoining. After the marriage, a couple of months
passed blissfully but soon thereafter, she was subjected to
atrocities on the question of dowry in sundry manner. She
was allegedly assaulted by the accused persons who were in
all eight. Those all were closed blood relations/relatives of the
husband Ashok Kumar. So, the respondent no.2 was forced to
leave her matrimonial house and to reside along with her
father at Roorkee.
(3.) It is also pertinent to mention that notices were sent to
respondent no.2, the same were served through her father but
none has turned up to contest the case, so this Court has
given hearing to learned counsel for the petitioner as well as
learned Deputy Advocate General for the State.;
