False dowry case
Hi, I have filed case under Section 9 against my wife ( basically for being defensive ) for preparing ground work for divorce as they were threating us that they will file dowry case against my family as we didnt agree to pay lum sum money for settlement. The case is in the court from past 1 year (Bangalore). All court summon were rejected on basis of address not found, finally as per court direction, we published court notice in local news paper. After reading summon notice on paper they filed a Dowry complaint in Women's police cell against me and my family in local rajasthan place. I would request you to please suggest 1. What preventive measure can I take to protect me and my family. 2. How can I make my Section 9 case stronger against powerful Dowry case 3. How diffcult it will be to fight against dowry case as its judgment/power is more favoured towards women 4. How inter state case will proceed in case of seeking anticipatory bail. I am the husband, from Bangalore, Wife is from Rajasthan, notice is served from bangalore family court too her home town place.
It is a very sorry state of affairs these days and also a trend to file frivolous and vexatious complaints of dowry. These aim at extortion of money from men by their wife. If you talk about Rajasthan in particular, the state leads in such malpractices. Such complaints filed in Rajasthan are maximum and most of the times baseless. However, as per your wordings, this is no different a situation.
