In a case where the Petitioners played an active role in entertaining the second wife of the Respondent and encouraged her to live in the same house as the Respondent's other wife, the Court refused to quash charges of criminal conspiracy against the Petitioners. It noted that the conduct of the Petitioners was sufficiently overt an act for it to fall under the purview of Section 120 IPC.
