As per DP act
Notwithstanding anything contained in any law for the time being in force, a statement made by the person aggrieved by the offence shall not subject such person to a prosecution under this Act.]
does it apply to wife only or her parents also?
if it does how is giving dowry a crime
if girl confirm dowry was given as aggrievedperson, she shall not be subjeced to prosecution under this act, I want to confirm if her parents also enjoy the same immunity.
If they have given dowry without groom side asking for/ it , who is liable for prosecution under this act.
Groom and his parents or girls parent.s
Interesting part of law is such gift can be easliy called stridhan instead of dowry whenever it suit girl side and dowry whenever it suit girl side.
