Supreme Court Decision of 01-08-2014 on the Place of Jurisdiction in Case of Dishonor of Cheque under Section 138 of N.I. Act


It is well settled that the desertion is a continuous act. Therefore it is trite to say that desertion is a conduct which continues until it is stopped by the deserter. The act of desertion does not merely mean the separation from the matrimonial home, ubt also includes the animus desirendi i.e. interntion of the deserter to bring the cohabitation permanently to an end. In the instant case, "the factum of desertion" may have initiated in the US, but has continued to exist even after the plaintiff left the US and returned to Delhi. Indira Sonti Vs. Suryanarayan Murty Sonti, C.C.P. No. 21 of 2002 with CS (OS) No. 2075 Of 2000, decided on 5.2.2013
