Hi All, my case is in initial stage. My wife was living with me in Europe, she fought with me and went back to India to her parents' place. FIL asking for huge amount of money to settle this outside the court. My FIL has put pressure on my family by threatening them to kill them and abusing them. My wife has sent lots of abusive and threatening messages to my sister and my sister attempted suicide. IPC 506 & 509 case was made on my wife, FIL they got station bail. Police has called my parents to the police station by telling them that a 498a case has been filed on them and asked them to go for a settlement. And gave us a time of 1 week to think about it. And after 1 week my parents went to the police station and declined to settle. SI tried to threaten about the gravity of 498a and gave them again time of 1 week to think about settlement. SI called my parents today and asked them about the decision. My dad declined to settle. Police have never given us a 41 notice to us yet and they are saying that FIR is not yet registered. Today we have got to know that FIR was already registered on 10/09 with sections 498a, 420, 354, 354a, 3 4 6 Dp act and police were hiding it from us. They are trying to arrest my brother in law as 354 354a are registered on him as per the info we received from constable who secretly passed on the info to us. How can I proceed from here to tackle this situation, applying for AB for all the 4 of my family members on Monday can be a good idea? Please advise how I can obtain AB for my family members. Citing the fact that this is a counter blast case and also she was with me in Europe went back to her parents' place, harassed my sister and brother in law (with proofs of text messages) and filing a false case on them to defend her crime. Thanks a lot in advance for your helpful suggestions.
