Hello Fighters,

Some good news to share at last..I have been on roller coaster ride from last couple of months..

Taking larger interest of my family (parents,kids,myself) and other factors of my lovely (attitude, demands, aggression etc etc) during last 3 years of legal procedure, i have decided to give one more chance to marriage life. Me and my lovely got into settlement deed and this was represented to JMFC. By the time we presented this settlement deed my case (498A) was pending for last stage which was argument of PP and my lawyer.

Considering all witness's statement and cross examination me and my family member have been acquitted from 498A. I would not say it was win only on merit as settlement has arrived is mentioned in the judgement, however as all witnesses were examined,cross examined (including IO). so it was kind of judgement based on full procedure in the court.

Reasons in the Judgement,
Prosecution failed to put a case beyond reasonable doubt
Prosecution failed to give any evidence
Acquitted due to benefit of doubt given to accused

At present living with lovely and a kid and so far everything is good.

P.S. I am still not sure if i have taken the right decision but i feel i did what seems to be right at this point of time. Its only hope on which i am going on ........................

Personally I would not say your decision is correct but considering the fact that you have kids, your situation is different and it might be the right decision. I feel happy that your 498a is over and I hope your wife would not opt for another false 498a (She can not file another 498a case with same allegations). I suggest you to forget all the past and give a serious try and make the future life with your wife a better one. I wish you to give this forum a positive reply.

Whatever it is. Stay Blessed. Hopefully both of you would have matured during this litigation and would give respect, love and space to other and have a happy life.

My love to your kid. He would now have love and affection of both the parents.

Felt that you lost faith 6 inches above ground. You should have taken her back after winning the case even if you wanted interest of family. Females of this era are different species, and do not understand how we value family, else she would not have even resorted to this tactic.

Her non withdrawal of her false statement in past (in FIR) in court does not give me good vibes about her future intentions. Had she also cared about family and marriage she should have accepted in court that she lied under pressure and wants you acquited. This would have been litmus test of her intentions.

Did she do that or it was just you who cared for family???

What were the precautions that you took in your settlement papers, so that you cannot be implicated in another 498a. I remember a Hindi adage which says
Adamkhor hone ke liye sher ke muh bas ek baar insani khoon lagna chahiye

Hope your settlement and luck prevents your wife from repeating this episode ever again in your life. Pray for your happy married family life with your kids.

Dear 498 fighter

I have read your post and you are wrong. She can file another 498a by twisting the facts and even without any modification. You will again have to run to the court to fight or quash your case. I have came across such cases where the victim is a police officer and her wife filed two consecutive FIR after withdrawing the first one.

So be cautious. Anything can happen in India.

all accused in 498a case on us are acquitted. operative part of the judgment "it is held that the prosecution failed to establish the guilt of the accused for offences u/s 498a, 406 IPC, Sec 3, 4 of DP Act and they are deserved for acquittal on ground of benefit of doubt. In result accused are found not guilty for the offences and they are acquitted u/s. 248(1) CRPC."
