Court opinion - 498A Quash after Chargesheet 09.12.2021

Court has carefully gone through the police papers and contents of the complaint. It appears that in 2007, the wife was asked to move out of the matrimonial home along with two daughters and she started to reside with her parents. It has been stated in the complaint that the wife's parents had given a sum of Rs. Five lakhs to the husband and thus the wife has returned to her matrimonial house for cohabitation.

It further appears from the statement of the wife that allegations have only been made against the husband for his extramarital relations with other women. However, the application, so far as the husband is concerned, came to be dismissed as withdrawn.

The mother-in-law who’s age 79 years. Allegations made against the married sister-in-law of the wife residing along with her husband, The brother-in-law, and his wife and their son are absurd. THIRD PERSON who is not the family member of the husband considering the case against him, provisions of Section 498A is not attracted against him.

The present case is a case of over-implication by dragging almost all the family members of the husband at the instance of the complainant. Hence, the FIR and the criminal proceeding against the petitioners have been Quashed.

Conclusion - 498A Quash after Chargesheet 09.12.2021

In this article the Bombay High court has held that the allegations made against the family of the husband are mere general in nature. The complaint in the present case is sadly vague as It does not show which accused has committed what offence and what is the exact role played by the petitioners in the commission of an offence. Hence, it is clear that if the allegations are absurd in nature and no case is made out, the criminal proceedings are liable to be quashed. Hence, the FIR was quashed by the Bombay High court.
