We have joined hands to fight similar type of problems related to false cases in Save Indian Family
yahoo Groups. We suggest you to do following:-
Do not take the matter lightly. This is quite common practice by some greedy and business
minded women in India. Think quick & smart. Whatever happens just stay cool, don’t express
your anger to anyone (Officers, public, neighbors, In-Laws etc.). Stay Polite in EVERY situation.
Contact a lawyer you can trust, ask the members of Save Indian Family Yahoo Group for the
reference of trustable and able lawyer in your area. You have to work harder than your lawyer
and above all keep calm, keep collecting evidence, maintain your professional job etc.
1. Fill the new 498a victim questionnaire at:
2. Make a detailed statement (with every detail you can think of, do not worry if the document
becomes lengthy one) about your innocence and handover to police commissioner in writing
(copies to SHO your local police station, ACP your local police station, DSP your local police station
and a copy to ACP of her local police station. State in the document that you are under threat of
"Falsely Implicating you, your parents and relatives in Dowry related and other criminal cases". If
possible mention Blackmailing etc. This is sort of Advance Declaration from your side about your
situation and your problems. This will be your weapon to defend their allegation.
If you have any evidence, file a complaint in police station and get a stamped copy, if not possible
send through registered post. Then move to court and try to register the same under criminal
procedure 156(3), for necessary investigation.
If the complaint made in police, CAW cell , try to get the copy and apply for Anticipatory bail , court
notice for protection whatever applicable as per your state , at any cost you or your family member
should not surrender to police , once you are able to get the bail , they will be under pressure .
Collect all the related judgments, from Supreme Court and high court, to get the bail easily.
Always ask the bail for family members first (except husband) . Once the same achieved , then
apply for the bail for husband in lower court , lower court will may reject it , move to session
court ( may reject it ) , move to high court ( may reject it ) , then move to supreme court , we are
here to help you out.
