I know 498a is criminal offence. Any Indian wife can file this case against her husband with no proofs. Just want to know, since husband planning to change the job. Now in job change husband have to fill forms for Background verification. In that there is a question like "Have you ever convicted or arrested in any criminal act in Indian court of law". So what should be husband's approach to this in the given scenario. Since all the allegations against husband are false and now settled and closed. Husband and wife already came to an settlement. Husband has all the certified copies for disposed off cases. I heard from someone that this criminal case is not type of category like forgery, murder, terrorists activites etc etc. This is a sort of family dispute. So husband should answer the above question as NO. Lawyersclub members please advise.
