Sri Santosh Kumar Singh, Advocate has filed his Vakalatnama on behalf of complainant/respondent no.3.
We have heard learned counsel appearing for the petitioners and learned A.G.A.. We have also gone through the FIR in question, which prima facie discloses the commission of an offence inter alia under Section 498-A I.P.C.

Such interim compensation from today upto 28.2.2006 shall be deposited in the court of Chief Judicial Magistrate, by 7th March, 2006 and for all subsequent months by 7th day of the following month.
