Whoever alleges something on the opposite party one who  alleges that thing must prove it t to the court.Hence Section 498 A wif e ha filed against  husband and in laws. So thee burden  of proof lioes on the complainant wife. No decisions Relating to this parrtidcular  poin tI could find anywhere. Sorry!. Would you giive profile likes in excange for free legal adsvise.

Version of Ms.Usha Kapoor is legally incorrect.


498A is a case between you and state govt and responsibility to prove allegations is on prosecution means on state govt.

Your wife will be treated as witness and will be termed as Prosecution Evidence (P.E)

Dear usha kapoor,

You are right there is a diffrence between having knowledge and only searching and copy pasting So i don't want to argue with you on that.. 

but you are wrong  on saying that i commented on your copy paste advice. I have never passed any comment on you as for me you are nobody, and only a discarded person who is beging of THANKS and when somebody click thanks on your post it is equivalent to slap. so for you one thank is equal to one slap/

For your knowledge 


Prosecutrix is a female victim of a crime on whose behalf the state is prosecuting.

So you ,a self proclaimed intelligent person, will understand that state prosecutes on behalf ( on the basis of the complaint) of prosecutrix

Ms Usha Kapoor showed her intelligence when she wrote that she is having certificate of intelligence given by her friends and family.

Is this is the benchmark that who is intelligent or not?


What Ms Usha Kapoor will do if someone will not give her certificate of intelligence.

I agree with Mr Sachin, 

She is self-proclaimed intelligent. And a certified fool.

In all the criminal cases including Section 498-A cases like 304-B cases, the burden to prove lies on the prosecution.  A few exceptions are there for this cardinal principle, but I won't discuss them here, because those exceptions (like offence occured in self-defence, intoxication and insanity etc.)  are irrelevant in 498-A cases.
