There's nothing new in your case. The provisions of 498A and DV act are being widely misused and that is as true and clear as the Sunlight. It has become a common practice in India to demand dowry from husbands and if that poor chap fails then such cases are filed against him.
Now-a-days, wives ask for a Mercedes or a BMW from their husbands irrespective of his financial status, and if that poor fellow fails to fulfil such demands then he has to face the trial of such cases. This shows that for the husbands, the laws and the in-laws are always fatal and destructive. But you should not panic. The first thing you should do is find out a good criminal lawyer to nail the asses of your in-laws. And also file some counter cases against them if you can.

There are many instances where the husbands have come out victorious in such cases and had their wives and in-laws pay for such deeds. So you don't panic. Be smart, be brave and be active. Victory will be your's. Best of luck.
