A Single judge of Rajasthan High Court held as follows,
Sushila Devi Vs Vikas Kumar Singhal And Ors on 9 Feb 2018
On perusal of the certified copy of the order-sheets, it appears that the application under Section 12 of the Act was filed way-back on 08.09.2016. Counsel appeared on behalf of respondents No.1 & 4 on 05.12.2016 and the matter is still pending before the Court of Addl. Chief Judicial Magistrate No.1, Neem Ka Thana, Sikar whereas as per provisions of Section 12(5) of the Act mandates that the Magistrate shall endeavour to dispose of every application made under sub-section 12(1) within a period of sixty days from the date of its first hearing. In the present case, five months have been passed, but no effective proceedings have taken place in the present matter. It appears to be an abuse of process of law, looking to the way in which proceedings are taking place in the court concerned.
In view of above, direction is issued to the Court of Addl. Chief Judicial Magistrate No.1, Neem Ka Thana, Sikar to make every endeavour to conclude the proceedings within two months from the date of receipt of certified copy of this order.
