Material evidence in Dowry case


Dear Experts,


Please add your comments on attached SC judgement "Material evidence required in dowry demand".

In contrast to DP act section 8A:

8-A. BURDEN OF PROOF IN CERTAIN CASES.-Where any person is prosecuted for taking or abetting the taking of any dowry under Sec. 4, or the demanding of dowry under Sec. 4, the burden of proving that he has not committed an offence under those sections shall be on him..

How applicable is this inĀ  other courts in false dowry cases.


CASE NO.:
Appeal (crl.) 222 of 2008

PETITIONER:
Ran Singh and Anr.

RESPONDENT:
State of Haryana and Anr.

DATE OF JUDGMENT: 30/01/2008

BENCH:
Dr. ARIJIT PASAYAT & P. SATHASIVAM

JUDGMENT:
J U D G M E N T
(Arising out of SLP (Crl.) No.3089 of 2006)


Dr. ARIJIT PASAYAT, J.


(see attached file for complete order)



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.

Dear Sir,

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.

Material Evidence: Anything that proves or disproves the existance of certain fact.

 

Is DD Material Evidence: Yes and No. Yes, for the exchange. No, as no demand coupled with it is shown.

 

This is a matter of trial and is quite technical in nature, noblanket advise in this regard can be given. 

 

Regards,

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...?
