I am falsely accused in a case for demanding dowry at the time of wedding. As you can imagine, Police without any investigation arrested me and my parents. Now girl and her parents are demanding astronomical amount of money. I have been trying to file a complaint against them for this fraud, conspiracy and attempted extortion. I approached to police but so far they have refused to file a FIR. I have even gone to extent of providing evidence in this matter. I know I can approach local court and request an order under Cr. PC 156(3). But I'm sure even if Police files a FIR no further action will be taken on it.
I am considering approaching high court requesting an order of both filing FIR and also ordering police to do investigation. I was wondering if this can be done? If it is, under what section a Petition can be filed in high court?
Thanks for your help.
