The victim alleged that her husband and his family members were not satisfied with the dowry. The victim has also alleged that she was treated with cruelty and harassed on account of dowry. The court was informed about the specific allegations of cruelty being committed the victim's husband. The problem of marital discord over dowry had started after two months of the marriage and the victim had also lodged a complaint.
In the court, the victim also alleged that petitioner earned nothing and he used to beat her after drinking liquor. The victim also alleged that her husband had only intention to snatch her monthly salary, savings, fixed deposits. The FIR was lodged after the police enquiry into the allegations. After hearing arguments of both the petitioner and the state government council, the court held that it was not a case in which extraordinary relief of anticipatory bail should be granted to the accused. On December 13, the court ordered that without expressing any opinion on the merits of the case, the present petition filed by petitioner Akshay Pupreja is dismissed being devoid of any merit. Now after the court's order the accused will now have to join police investigation and face the trial in court in Gurgaon under the different Indian Penal Code sections as mentioned in the FIR registered by the victim.
