Wife is planning to file a false criminal case: How should I protect myself?

Question: Can I protect myself from being roped in a false criminal case? My wife is planning to file a false criminal case against me. She does not want to live with my joint family and is forcing me to transfer to another city. I am working in a PSU Bank and have a possibility to shift to another city. But my parents need my support hence, I don’t want to transfer from here. My in-laws are suggesting my wife to leave the joint family and go to any metro city to live a good life. They are very influential and dominate my wife to follow their suggestions. She starts quarreling on petty issues and tempts me to do any violence or criminal act. I am very worried about my future because she has an intention i.e. send me to jail. Please help!

High Court Lucknow

Reading Time:

You should arrange a meeting with your in-laws for amicable settlement of dispute with your wife. Engage in that meeting some elder persons or family members from both sides. Put forth all the issues and misunderstandings and ask them to give an amicable solution. 

You must state the behaviour of your wife and her demand to settle in another city. Also unveil the undue interference of your in-laws and their dominating behaviour. Don’t hide anything in that meeting. You should not give any solution thereof. Let the members devise a peaceful solution to all these disputes.

Thereafter, your wife cannot file a false criminal case arising out of the current matrimonial acrimony. When she would have an opportunity to express her grievance in that meeting thereafter she would not mingle the fact so as to fabricate a false criminal case. You can pray the High Court to quash the criminal proceeding if your wife files any false criminal case. Court always appreciates the parties to do amicable settlement of their dispute.

I constructed my house on the written permission of NHAI : How to protect its demolition?

As per Karnataka state government laws building to be constructed 40 metre away from the centre line of national highway’s road. When we approached the NHAI, engineer provided conditional approval about building construction. He took written statements saying that the owner will not receive compensation for demolition of his building if the NHAI would demolish his building during road widening. We started building construction after getting approval from NHAI. Now the Karnataka high court bench has upheld the government’s law about 40 metre. The court has directed the authority to take action. Could you please guide how we can proceed now.

An agreement to sale holder has dispossessed me forcefully

I bought the immovable property through a registered sale deed. Before purchasing the immovable property the seller made an unregistered sale agreement with another one and gave him the possession of the property. But later on the person who made a sale agreement did not act as per sale agreement. So the original owner of the property sent him a notice for cancellation of the sale agreement. After that I purchased the said property through the registered sale deed and I took possession of the said property. Now that unregistered sale agreement holder files a suit under specific performance and forcefully took the possession of said property. Now matter is pending in court so my question is whether I can lodge the FIR against the unregistered sale agreement person for trespass offence?
