with FIR No. 289/2013 dated 01.07.2013 registered at P.S.

This Court while issuing notice on 07.05.2018 stayed

further proceedings in connection with the FIR No. 80/2013

dated 29.04.2013. It reveals from the record that notice has

been duly served on respondent no.2, but no one has put in

appearance on her behalf.

It is informed that 1st October, 2021 has been fixed by

the learned trial Judge in the proceedings and for recording

We direct that further proceedings in reference to both

the afore-stated FIR No. 80/2013 and FIR No. 289/2013 be taken

up together by the Trial Judge.

With these observations, the appeal stands disposed of.
