Non-Bailable Warrant against IIT Grad’s Wife
New Delhi, 28th May, 2008: In an interesting development, Rohini Metroplitan Magistrate issued the Non-Bailable Warrant against the dishonest wife who failed to appear on last couple of dates. Jaspreet Kaur, wife of IIT alumunus Prameet S Narula was being summoned for the proceedings against her u/s 182 IPC initiated by Punjabi Bagh Police.
In this matter, Punjabi Bagh Police had filed a Kalandhra u/s 195 Cr.P.C in the Court of Metropolitan Magistrate, Rohini Court in August 2007. Metropolitan Magistrate had taken the cognizance u/s 182 IPC and had been repeatedly summoning the accused Jaspreet Kaur who is presently residing in Melbourne, Australia. On the last date of hearing in Feb, 2008, accused father Jaswinder Singh residing in India was asked by the Hon’ble Court to produce the accused on next Date Of Hearing (28th May); failing which non-bailable warrant were issued by the Metroplitan Magistrate on 28th May. “The warrants to be served by the Ministry of External affairs”, the Magistrate added.
While placing the matter before the court, Punjabi Bagh Police highlighted the complaint dated 5th may, 2004 filed by Ms. Kaur against Mr. Narula alleging that the later had destroyed her passport. This complaint was filed by Ms. Kaur on 5th May, 2004.
However, in an affidavit submitted by her in an Australian Court she submitted the true copy of her passport which was issued in 2000. The same was highlighted by Mr. Narula to the Punjabi Bagh Police in May, 2007, acting upon which police submitted the Kalandera u/s 182 IPC in the Court of Metropolitan Magistrate in August, 2007. As an evidence, the copy of her passport was attached on which she had traveled to Australia in July, 2006 which carries the stamp of Australian Visa. 182 IPC deals with giving false information to the public servant in order to cause injury to someone. Maximum punishment for the offence is prescribed as 6 months of RI.
Ms. Jaspreet Kaur has also initiated another criminal proceedings against Mr. Narula, pending the court of ASJ, Rohini Courts. However after filing the case, Ms.Kaur left for Australia without even intimating the court and leaving Mr. Narula with an agony to face criminal proceedings for last four years. Ms. Kaur then in Australia filed the divorce for the fourth time (her earlier applications of divorce were either dismissed or withdrawn by herself). But here Ms. Kaur committed a mistake when she moved a true copy of her passport carrying her Australian Visa in the Australian Court. The same was produced by Mr. Narula in front of Punjabi Bagh Police.
It seems Mr. Narula’s long and patient wait for justice for last four years is finally getting paid off. This should be a lesson to all those who believe that they will manipulate the law to their benefit and still go scot free.
