(1.) Mr. Manish Arora, Advocate, for the petitioners.
Ms. Nishat Intezar, Brief Holder, present for the State/
(2.) None has turned up on behalf of private respondent
despite of sufficient service upon her, so this Court has heard
learned counsel for the petitioners and has perused the entire
material available in file.
(3.) The challenge herein is to the cognizance order dated
31.7.2004 which has summoned the petitioners along with
two others to stand trial for the offences under Section 498-
A/504/506 IPC r/w Section 3/4 of Dowry Prohibition Act. In
this case, the marriage of respondent no.2 Smt. Sunita
Sundriyal was solemnized almost in the year 1998 with Sri
Shyam Sundriyal, who has also been summoned but has not
come up before this Court. One more accused Smt Shanti
(married sister-in-law of the bride) has also been made
accused in the complaint and summoned by the trial court but
she too has not come up. So, the order of this Court will
pertain only in respect of the present petitioners and not in
respect of other accused, namely, Shyam Sundriyal and Smt.
