Case Brief - 498A Quash after settlement 27.01.2022

The marriage of the husband and wife got solemnized on 17.04.2014 in accordance with the customs & rituals in their religion. Initially, the relationship between the husband and wife was quite understanding.

Soon it was discovered that the relationship between the husband and the wife was turning sore, and soon after that a complaint was registered by the wife on 25.4.2020 dragging the entire family members and distant relatives of the husband.

After reading the complaint it was discovered that majorly the allegations in the complaint are against the husband and very few vague sentences about the mother-in-law and the father-in-law.

The other family members are unnecessarily dragged into the proceedings without there being any specific allegations of any plainly apparent act against them. The investigation was transferred to Sindhanur due to the want of jurisdiction. Later, the IO (Investigating Officer), has filed the charge sheet without there being order to that effect from the competent Court.

Even, if the matter is settled between the husband and the wife, by mutually accepting divorce, there are no allegations in the complaint that attract the provision of Section 498A, 323, 504, 506 of the IPC or Section 3, 4, and 6 of the Dowry Prohibition Act against all other family members i.e.; brothers-in-law, sisters-in-law and distant relatives who admittedly do not stay with the complainant.

Referred Cases - 498A Quash after settlement 27.01.2022

1. Geeta Mehrotra and others v. State of Uttar Pradesh

The FIR does not disclose any specific allegations against the petitioners but more so against the husband, especially in the matter arising out of matrimonial disputes. It would be a clyster clear abuse of the legal and judicial process to intentionally send the named petitioners in the FIR to go through the trial unless, of course, the FIR discloses any specific allegations which would convince the court to take cognizance of the offense alleged against the relatives of the husband who were on the face of it not found to have involved in the physical and mental torture of the wife.

The court, therefore, deems it legally appropriate to quash the proceedings initiated against the petitioners as the FIR does not disclose any material which could be held to be constituting any offense against the two petitioners.

2. Rashmi Chopra V. State of Uttar Pradesh

The bare reading of the chargesheet discloses the fact that the petitioners are not the husband’s immediate family members. They are distant relatives and are related to the husband as they are the maternal uncles of the husband. Except for the bold statement that they supported the husband who was harassing the wife for dowry and that they conspired with the husband for taking away his child to the U.S.A., nothing else indicates their involvement in the crime that was mentioned. The petitioners approached the High Court when the investigation was pending. The chargesheet was filed after the disposal of the case by the High Court.
