Here are the deposition comments from my wife during trail:
A2 - my mother,
LW1- My uncle's daughter(my wife),
LW2 - my wife'smother
LW3-Relative of my wife and me(close relative to me but favor to my wife),
LW4- Relative of my wife and me(close relative to me but favor to my wife),
LW5- Relative of my wife
At the time of my marriage with A1, My parents presented Rs 15, 00,000/- and 50 sovereigns of gold to A1.After marriage A1 set up family at the house of A3 at Bangalore. At the time of marriage accused demanded Rs 25 lakhs of cash and 100 sovereigns of gold, but my parents expressed their inability and presented only Rs.15 lakhs and 50 sovereigns of gold. A2 and A4 used to came to the house of A3 frequently.A1 to A4 used to question me the remaining amount of dowry and 50 sovereigns of gold and harassed me frequently. I informed the same to my parents about the demands made by accused. My parents informed me that prior to marriage they expressed their inability to accused.I stayed with A1 and A3 at Bangalore for a period of 4 months. After 4 months of my marriage, I became pregnant. I was taken to my parents-in-law’s house at home town.My parents-in-law tortured me after I became pregnant demanding me amounts that is remaining amount of Rs 10 lakhs and 50 sovereigns of gold.I used to inform the said facts to my parents over phone.Mediations took place. Accused subjected me to torture in order to make me to leave the matrimonial home and to bring the amounts.I did not leave my matrimonial home though my parents called but stayed at the home of accused. My parents came to my home while I was 7th month pregnant and took me to their home.I delivered female baby.We informed to accused about delivery of female baby, accused did not turn up to me as I gave birth to a female child. Accused did not turn up to see the child up to her age of 5 months. Accused did not even talk to me.Later my parents took me to the home of accused while the child was of 6th month. Accused did not mend their attitude and continued their harassment towards me. A1, A2, A4 send me to the house of A3 at Bangalore from home town. I stayed there for about one month. A3 also started harassment and questioning about the amounts. Again I was taken to my parents-in-law’s house at A1's home town from the house of A3.Again A1, A2; A4 questioned me to bring the amounts demanded by them at the time of marriage.On 25.7.2010 they necked me and my daughter out of the home by retaining my gold ornaments and all my articles in their home.Accused locked the home and went away where as I and my daughters were there in front of the house of the accused for a period of 7 days.after I presented a report to police, Police called accused without registering FIR. Police made counselling A2 and A4 came to the counselling and asked a period of 7 days’ time to inform. After 7 days A2 and A4 also did not turn up to police station, and then police registered a case against the accused.
During the cross from my lawyer, he clearly proved the inability of her financial status of my wife's parents. All the above allegations are orally she told infront of the judge and no paper evidence.Her parents also told the same allegations. All other witness LW3 and LW4 told that they were the elders to setup the marriage and given dowry during the marriage . They clearly told that there is no harrasement from the A1 family. So the judgement from the trail court is 5 years convicted under DP act 3 and 4 and 10 lakhs fine. But no conviction on 498A as all witnesses told that there is no harrasement. There is no single evidence from any one apart form the oral evidence.
But the allegations which they have given in their deposition are completely wrong as they don't have the financial capability. The same was proved in the DVC case also .The high court also squashed the DVC case on A2 to A4. I am paying the monthly maintenance of 20K to my wife.My wife's mother already files IP for 64 lakhs. All these documents were provided by me as an evidence to the judge during trail.
Please let me know if you need any more information.
