(1.) Both the above-captioned petitions are admitted
and are being decided by this common judgment and order
as these have been filed against the same order of
cognizance dated 6.3.2012, passed by the Judicial
Magistrate, Haridwar in Criminal Case No. 100/2012, State
v. Nand Kishor, whereby accused applicants have been
summoned to stand trial for the offences under Section
498A, 323, 504 IPC and Section 3/4 Dowry Prohibition Act.
(2.) Applicants Sharad Bhardwaj and Smt. Neera
Sharma are respectively younger brother-in-law and
married sister-in-law of the complainant Smt. Kavita.
Marriage of Smt. Kavita was solemnized with Rajeev
Bhardwaj on 6.5.2006. Soon after the marriage, she was
allegedly harassed and tortured by her husband and other
members of her in-laws family. It has been averred that
when the atrocities crossed the tolerable limits, Smt. Kavita
left her matrimonial house and joined her parents, who
reside at Haridwar itself. The dispute also went to Women
Help Line, but ultimately it could not be sorted out. An FIR
was lodged on 10.10.2011. The police after conclusion of
the investigation filed the chargesheet, inter alios, against
the present applicants for the offences mentioned above. An
additional chargesheet was filed against the husband Rajeev
(3.) Learned Counsel for the applicants apprised this
Court that no petition has been filed by other accused
persons against the impugned proceedings. Only Nand
Kishor Sharma (father-in-law) had filed a petition, which
was dismissed by this Court.;
