Bills in the name of aunt,uncle,mother,father,and herself. Now the issue is I don't have anything she alleges I have. She has attached few pics from marriage where I am being given a gold chain . Some gifts on Shagun. What can I do appart from denying it. The bills value is in the range of 20-25lac. Apart from this the chargesheet is empty .
Gift given to you at the time of marriage is not dowry articles nor it's her istridhan that she can claim it back.
Secondly in criminal complaint you are not supposed to give any reply back as in civil cases. Your denial of having taken or holding any dowry articles or demanding it from the wife or her parents etc. is sufficient.
At the time of recording your statement u/s 313 Cr. P. C you can state that gold chain was presented as a gift to you not as dowry article nor you demanded it and with her own sweet will the same given as gift and it's not her Istridhan.
