This quash judgment from Andhra Pradesh High Court, albeit dismissed, has some legal points discussed apart from citing good earlier judgments which clarified the position of law in case of out of jurisdiction cases.
In the present case, the second respondent was driven out from the matrimonial home from Mumbai. The second respondent went to the house of her parents at Tenali. In view of Manish Ratan (2 supra), Tenali Courts do not get territorial jurisdiction merely because the second respondent returned to Tenali. However, in view of Geeta Mehrotra (5 supra), where the Supreme Court held that the question of territorial jurisdiction shall be determined by the trial Court and not in a petition u/s.482Cr.P.C., I consider that this petition is misconceived.
