RAMKUMAR , J. ========================== CRL.M.C. No. 706 of 2008 ========================== Dated this the 27th day of February, 2008. O R D E R
The petitioner, who is the son of the 1st respondent herein, was the respondent in M.P. No. 519/2008 before the Judicial First Class Magistrate, N. Paravur which was a petition filed under Section 19 of the Protection of Women from Domestic Violence Act, 2005. As per Annexure 4 order dated 06.02.2008, the learned Magistrate directed the petitioner to vacate the shared household within 10 days from the date of the order. The petitioner has preferred an appeal before the Sessions Court, Ernakulam as Crl.Appeal No. 123/2008 under Section 29 of the said Act. The grievance of the petitioner is that notice alone has been ordered on Annexure 5 petition for stay.
2. The only order which is called for in this Crl.M.C is to direct the Sessions Court, Ernakulam to dispose of the above appeal expeditiously as soon as the 1st respondent herein enters appearance in the matter. In case the Sessions Judge has reason to believe that the 1st respondent herein namely Sujatha Prabhakaran is indulging in evasive tactics, that court may consider the passing of an interim order in the stay petition. This Crl.M.C is disposed of directing the Sessions Court to dispose of the appeal expeditiously.
V. RAMKUMAR, JUDGE.
