This court is not inclined to entertain the writ petition at the instance of the petitioner as she was neither a party to the proceedings before the learned Magistrate, Tambaram nor she has locus standi to file such a writ petition.The marriage between the second respondent and her husband was not dissolved so far.As against the said order, an appeal lies to the Sessions Court in terms of the Section 29 of the Act. Hence the petitioner if aggrieved she should file an appropriate application before the Sessions Court after getting the leave of the court to challenge the same. Section 17(2) itself says that an aggrieved person cannot be evicted or excluded from the shared household or any part of it by any person except the procedure established by law. Therefore, it is for the petitioner to establish her title before the appropriate court before seeking for any relief against the cancellation of the shared housedhold order given by the learned magistrate. There is no case made out by the petitioner. Accordingly, the writ petition will stand dismissed. No costs.
