420/extortion against


is there any precedent of filing a 420/extortion/blackmail case against a false 498a gang?

if not, under what circumstances can it be done? you can review various false dowry cases to think of possibilities.

theft, marriage by concealing material facts, filing a false dowry case within a few months etc. it may not be possible to conclusively prove it, but there could be enough material (prima facie) to register a case.

has anyone succeeded in initiating proceedings against false 498a gang?

There are some sporadic success stories in this case, couple of them assisted by yours truly.


However, it depends on what sort of documents you have.
