Your defense is highly against you.
on fist hearing you said that " petitioner submits that it was a case of second marriage between both the parties and no dowry was given at the time of marriage. Learned counsel for the petitioner submits that the petitioner is ready to sign any document relating to FDR, which is stated to be in joint name and the complainant-respondent No.2 "
On second hearing " the petitioner did not make any effort for encashment of the fixed deposit whereas learned counsel for the petitioner submits that original copy of fixed deposit was not available with the petitioner and a written request was made to the Bank for issuance of duplicate copy. All the formalities have been completed by the petitioner"
On third hearing " learned counsel for Union Territory of Chandigarh submits that though the petitioner has joined the investigation and majority of the items have been recovered except jewellery items. "
On fourth hearing " Adjourned to 05.10.2016 to enable the petitioner to apply his mind to transfer 10 marla plot in the name of his girl child or in the alternative to deposit an amount in the shape of FDR in her name to secure her future "
When you yourself said that you are ready to give money and plot , when you yourself said that no stridhan has given , then how it was recovered. In this circumstances what do you expect the court "
If you still want to reduse the said amount be ready to file appeal in division bench of HC.
