Petitioners had also gone in Revision (No. 8 of 2006) and the revising Court dismissed the revision vide order dated 23.7.2007 and that is why this petition under Article 226 of the Constitution of India.
2.Heard Sri Prabhat Agrawal, learned counsel for the petitioners and Sri S.D. Tripathi, Addl. Government Advocate for the State and perused the record.
3.The petitioners' grouse against the orders passed by the court below is two fold;
(i) That the Complaint in which they have been summoned is filed as a reprisal measure as to coerce them into submission in a pending Civil Suit filed by respondent No. 5 and her son against petitioner Nos. 1 & 2 for the cancellation of a sale-deed of a house , which was executed by Sri Vijai Kumar, husband of respondent no. 2, infavour of petitioner Nos. 1 and 2.
(ii) There is no prima-facie sufficient evidence as to support the summoning order under Sections 323,452,504 and 506 I.P.C. passed against them.
4.Both these submissions relate to the facts, which can only be gone into at the stage of Trial. This writ petition has no force, and is dismissed of accordingly.
5.However, as submitted if the petitioners put their appearance before the Trial Magistrate within 20 days from today and after obtaining bail, they raise objections in this behalf by filing a discharge application, annexing certified copy of the civil proceedings between the parties, the Trial Magistrate before he proceeds with the Trial will decide their application and till then no coercive process will be issued against the petitioners.
