This judgment declares a criminal case of filed at a wrong jurisdiction and permits transfer of case to another court with proper jurisdiction to proceed with case.
One piece of valuable information is
We find that the offence of cruelty cannot be said to be a continuing one as contemplated by Sections 178 and 179 of the Code. We do not agree with the High Court that in this case the mental cruelty inflicted upon the respondent no. 2 “continued unabated” on account of no effort having been made by the appellants to take her back to her matrimonial home, and the threats given by the appellants over the telephone. It might be noted incidentally that the High Court does not make reference to any particular piece of evidence regarding the threats said to have been given by the appellants over the telephone.
One thing to note is the judge is directing to effectively transfer case on court with proper jurisdiction.
