The penalty for giving or taking dowry. If any person, after the commencement of Dowry Prohibition Act, gives or takes or abets the giving or taking dowry, he shall be punishable with imprisonment which may extend to six months, or with fine which may extend to five thousand rupees, or with both.

Don't indulge in adventurism and indulge in something that may create problems for you. If what your wife alleges is wrong, you have got nothing to worry as the onus is on them to prove their case. Get in touch with a lawyer who is able to defend you effectively.
