How to withdraw a case filed under section IT Act section 66C?
Situation : How to withdraw a case filed under section IT Act section 66C?
My wife left the matrimonial home one year back and filed 3 false cases against me of dowry, harrasment and hacking her email account under IT Act 66C
,I also filed 2 seperate cases of divorce and adultery against her and her family. Within a year of these cases I lost my job and went pennyless, some how making my ends meet.
Under my family and relatives advice and deteriorating mental health of my parents , I decided to settle the cases by giving my wife 10 lakhs rupees in two part payments on condition of divorce and withdrawing all the cases against each other.
One of the cases which my wife filed against me under IT ACT 66C that i have hacked her gmail and facebook and using it for malicious purposes, court has filed chargesheet against me. The mutual consent agreement happend after court filing chargesheet against me. We had mutual consent divorce agreement explicitly stating that she has to withdraw all of her cases in next six months
How can she withdraw this case ? Or what steps I can take so that this is withdrawn.
