My son was 10 yrs 1 month when 498a was filed against me in October 2007. Now he is 18+. The Petitioner lady added his name as a witness against his own father (me). Is it possible? IO missed dates. On the last date when he was called with warrant, he arrived. But the Judge was absent. Today IO again did not turn up. Earlier the petitioner missed every dates and arrived for cross-examination after more than 8 years. Out of 3 witnesses, only one came and gave his positive views in OPs favor.
Please guide me whether new witness (son) can be put against his father after the former attained majority? Is it justified? As obviously, the then little boy was taught right from his childhood that his father was a bad man. Please mention Supreme Court case reference. IO did not take any statement from the then minor son. It is not out of place to mention that I was driven out of my own house 9 yrs back, where the petitioner lady along with our son lives, whereas regular EMIs are paid by me being employee of the lending organisation.
