The High Court has fallen in grave error while observing that present appellants "could misappropriate" and "who can practice cruelty". The conclusions to say the least are presumptuous. Learned Additional Sessions Judge by a well reasoned order had held that there was no material to show that demand for any dowry was made and an attempt was made to rope in many persons. When the High Court was interfering with such conclusions arrived at on facts it ought to have indicated the reasons necessitating such interference. That has not been done and on the contrary on presumptuous conclusions the order of learned Additional Sessions Judge has been set aside.
when I and my wife was in usa. FIL's assistant kept money intentionally in my andhra bank account monthly 5,000 Rupees like that for 6 months. actually i didn't know about that and i didn't withdraw amoney until now. After separation for 3 years my wife recently filed FIR under section 498A & DP 4
For the DP4 they took evidance from the bank manager about their deposited money lumsum amount,
is that valid evidance? because i didn't know about the money deposited by whom.
NOT even DD/Cheque/Wire Transfer/Telegraphic Transer/Money Order.
They mention that they paid money in another town andhra bank and asked them transfered to my hometown andhra bank Account(very old & ordinary account(non-nri) account doesn't have any internet/phone banking facility).. actually i am an NRI for 10 years... Does this online Transaction valid proof for DP4?
money will be in the account itself... they might have receipts for the above said transactions..why don't they withdraw the money using those receipts...?
does it valid proof for transfering money to another account without their knowledge...?
