1. The respondent is living at Old No.9, New No.29, Flat D, 1 st Floor,


Gothi apartments, Shivaji Street, T.Nagar, Chennai 17, and not as stated in the petition. The address of the respondent as stated in thepetitioner is misleading and incorrect. 2. The petition u/s 205 Cr.P.C. is not maintainable.

3. The provision u/s 205 Cr.P.C. is not applicable in the proceedings initiated under the Protection Of Women From Domestic Violence Act 2005. The Act does not contemplate the words Complainant and Accused to any party, pending proceedings. On the other hand, Petitioner and Respondent(s) are the nomenclature given to the parties in such Proceedings. Moreover, the proceedings initiated before this Honble court is not a Criminal Proceedings. The provision u/s 205 Cr.P.C. is meant only for ACCUSED and as such the petitioners herein cannot usurp the powers of this Honble court u/s 205 Cr.P.C. So, the petition is coined under a wrong provision, and therefore not maintainable and devoid of merits.

4. The respondent states that until and unless an order is passed under the PROTECTION OF WOMEN FROM DOMESTIC VIOLENCE ACT 2005, and the same is violated the question of Accusation does not arise under the Act. So, the petitioners/respondents are not accused under section 205 Cr.P.C. to avail such remedy.

5.

The averments contained in para 3 of the petition filed by

Mrs.Kalmala Kanwar Gothi and Mr.S.Sardarmal Gothi does not supported by any documentary materials.

So, the intention of the Legislature is to give remedy to the affected woman in a shortest possible time frame. While being so, the presence of the petitioners are just, must and necessary to dispose of the proceedings without any delay. If the petitions are allowed the proceedings will be stalled and this Honble court may not be in a position to hand down remedies to meet out the requirements fixed under the Act. 7. Without prejudice to the above contentions, the respondent begs to state that The petitions filed u/s 205 Cr.P.C. does not meet out the requirements ( Affidavit & Petition with undertakings, special vakalat of the Advocate etc.,) as enunciated by the Honble Supreme Court and Various Honble High Courts and on the very ground the same are liable to be dismissed. 8.

4. After a couple of days of marriage, the mother in law along with

sister in law Rakshitha till she was unmarried and used to reside with us in my marital home, who is now married to Mr.Vivek Gulecha, started treating the petitioner indifferently.

amenities like food, clothes etc.

when requested for the reason of such

behaviour, they say that the petitioner was not upto their expectations and they wanted a richer bride who would have brought even more dowry and Jewellery.

6. The petitioner states that in the initial days of marriage, the first

respondent was happy with the marriage. However, due to mother in laws and sister in laws interference, the first respondent used to scold, behave indifferently and refused to spend any time with the petitioner. The petitioner states that deliberately the mother in law wantonly send the husband on frequent out station trips. When ever he was in station, she used to not leave the bedroom and give frequent phone calls every now and then, thereby did not give them to have any private time together to have their marriage bliss. The petitioner states that the mother in law used to threaten that she will convince the first respondent, husband for another marriage if she complains to her husband about the harassment met at their hands. On the other hand, even if the petitioner complains to her husband, he used to get furious and did not believe her words, thereby indirectly encouraged the inlaws continuing their harassment.

7. The petitioner states that subsequently things went so bad, with

intention of getting the first respondent remarried, several occasions, the mother in law mixed some drugs in the petitioners food in order to poison and kill her. When questioned about the mixing of suspicious materials, the 3rd respondent used to dump the food in dustbin to conceal her misdeed. Due to that, the petitioner could not have her food peacefully.

and her sisters son in law one Kailash Khabia attempted to kill me by loosening the chandelier so that the same falls on her to make it appear that the petitioner was killed in a freak accident.

fights, during January 2006, she suffered high fever and even then she was not taken to any doctor and provided with any food or medical assistance. As the parents were called, they took the petitioner to Harilal Hosptial, Royapuram, Chennai where she was diagnosed of suffering from typhoid. The petitioner was taken care by her parents and brother during her stay at hospital and none of the respondent attended.

10. After the discharge from the hospital, when she went to the marital

home once again the mother in law stealthily mixed anti diabetic drugs in the food kept on the table. When the same was questioned, the mother in law along with sister in law and one Kailash Khabia beat her, pulled her by hair and abused with unparliamentary words. Several times, the petitioner was thrown away from the matrimonial house and denied entry into the house and thus the petitioner had to stay at the threshold of the house for several hours.

11. As the petitioner had to stay at her matrimonial home with constant

fear and danger to life, she had to complained to her parents and there were many occasions of counselling and also many panchayats involving the husband and both the family members in front of relatives, but in vain. The petitioners husband and his family members refused to pay any heed to advices and outrightly denied to accept the petitioner and help her to live with them peacefully.

12. The petitioner states that after many attempts, finally during December 2008, the husband agreed to live with the petitioner separately in a Flat at Old No.9, New No.29, Flat D, 1 st Floor, Gothi apartments, Shivaji Street, T.Nagar, Chennai 17. The petitioner states that soon after few days, the mother in law started visiting the home frequently and also used to call the petitioners husband to live with her by leaving the petitioner aloof. The petitioner states that due to the ill advice of the 3 rd respondent and others, the 1st respondent took away all the gold and diamond jewellery and compelled me to open a joint locker account in Union Bank of India, T. Nagar Branch, operatable by both 1st respondent and the petitioner. The petitioner came to know that the 2nd and 3rd respondents had instructed the 1st respondent that the petitioner should never be allowed to open the locker and use the jewellery. The petitioner states that 100 kilograms of silver articles and cash and other gifts were retained by mother in law and are still in her custody and the petitioner has no access to them and was not returned till date.

13. The petitioner states that the 2nd and 3rd respondents always used to find some reason to call the 1st respondent to stay with them. The husbands parents frequently used to send him to outstation business trips involving several weeks and sometimes months. In his absence, the petitioner has to live alone, in fear of loneliness and danger to her life. During those periods, the 1st respondent never bothered to call her to enquire about her well being. Whenever the petitioner called him, he used to chide and bang the phone.

14. The petitioner states that even when she attempted to enquire her inlaws about the husbands stay and whereabouts she was never allowed to get entered in to their house. Instead the petitioner was thrown out of the house whenever she attempts to find her husbands whereabouts.

15.

The petitioner states that her husband is vice chairman of his family

run business under the name of style of M/s. Gothi Constructions which deals in constructions, real estate business, eking several crores of profit. The office was in the same premises where the respondents currently reside. Even last month between June 21- 30 2011, with intention to talk with the 1 st respondent and bring him back to the petitioners home, and every day when she tried to meet her husband in his office, the mother in law used to beat her and throw her out of the office. This caused the petitioner to face lot of insult and humiliation in front of outsiders.

16.

The petitioner states that on 10th June 2011, when she was in home

alone, her husband, his parents both Sardar Gothi and Kamala Gothi, came around 10 PM and asked the petitioner as to why the petitioner was staying there. They said that they would not return the jewels and asked her to leave the flat immediately. They snatched the petitioners cell phone and did not allow to contact her parents. When she started wailing, the mother in law Kamala Gothi tried to smother her with cloth, and Sardar Gothi kicked her to go out and when she attempted to wriggle out, she was punched indiscriminately leading to swollen face. There after the petitioner was forced to leave the flat and go to her parents home on the night. The petitioner states that though she was chased out, she waited in vain hoping that good sense will prevail and she will be accepted. But her submissive nature was fully exploited by them and they came to her parents house and threatened that if any legal action is taken, they would not reconsider reunion.

17. The petitioner submits that having no other go, she complained on 5.8.2011 to the W5- Vepery All Women police station in CST 173 of 2011 and as the case was not properly enquired into, the same was complained to the Deputy Commissioner of Police,Vepery, Chennai.
