Wife has filed false 498a against me & family. Since Police are also aware it is a false case to intimidate me they haven't tried to arrest me. AB is pending before court. Mediation is failed.
Now Police IO called me & saying wife's family wants to take back the 498a case provided I accept their unreasonable demands (to let wife & my kid stay in their house for another 1 year)
I asked the IO why have you filed this false 498a case against me when you clearly know there is no dowry taken nor any demand of dowry. IO says yes there is no dowry harassment but we filed it because of their pressure and only due to harassment, now they are willing to take back their case if you accept their demand. I said I cant accept their unreasonable demand & since I haven't done any wrong, so I'm willing to face the case in court & fight against it to prove it false.
I would like to know if 498a case can be filed even when there is no "dowry harassment" ?
If so, how will the police file chargesheet? on what basis?
How to proceed in this further?
