The girl I married is not staying with me for 8 months. She left our house 2 weeks after our marriage. We think she was not physically or mentally fit as the marriage was never consummated (no physical relations). The girl's family took her back and told us that they would send the girl back in 1-2 months as the girl is under depression. We never filed a police complaint or any case as we too wanted this to settle this peacefully. The girl took away all the gold and expensive gifts with her. After 4 months when we never heard back from the girl's family, we visited girl’s mamaje (uncle) house and he told us that they are planning to send the girl back to us as she is now feeling good. But again after 2-3 months, when we did not hear back from them, we called the girl's mother and she asked us to give 20 lacs to end this marriage as the girl does not like the boy. We refused to give such a big amount as it was the girl who broke out from this marriage. A week later (before we could plan anything) we got a call from police that they have received a complaint of 'dowry and beating' against all members of my family. In report it was mentioned that boy and family used to beat the wife right from day one. But the girl (during her stay at our house) used to write a personal diary where she mentioned that her husband and all members are very nice and caring. We showed this to the police along with recording of his uncle (mamajee) where he is apologizing to us for this entire incident. This evidence is enough to prove that we never misbehaved or asked for dowry but still police is not rejecting girl's false complaint and is forcing us for a settle this with the girl family (by giving them money) else they will have to file a F.I.R. against us. Now is it under INDIAN law that a F.I.R. will always be filed against boy and family no matter if they are innocent? Can we take any action against police for filing a false F.I.R., if they do? What should we do now? I really do not want this F.I.R. to get filed as I do not want to waste my time in courts and fighting 498a and proving myself right. Please help me as I will not accept this lying down.
