I am posting this for my friend. I have heard that both giving and taking dowry is an offence.
Is there a case, where the girl and the family were charged for offering dowry?If there is one, please share the reference.
My friend has a video proof where the girl's elders offer more money and gold for his marriage. And his mother denies the offer and says that she only wants a good daughter in law to their family. This conversation, that happened during engagement, is clearly recorded in video.
Can this be used as proof by my friend to counter false dowry case filed by his wife?
