Patna High Court Cr.Misc. No.35683 of 2014 dt.18-09-2017

2/3

3. The petitioners are in-laws of the Opposite Party No.2

against whom, it has been alleged that they immediately after

the marriage of Opposite Party No.2 started torturing her as the

amount given in dowry was not adequate. They asked the

complainant to bring money from her parents for purchasing a

car. They used to pass circasting remarks against the complaint

by saying that she was having black complexion. It further

appears that the family of the complainant had given cash

amount of Rs.11,00000/- through different cheques as well as

cash. Besides that the complaint claims that an amount of

Rs.17,40,000/- was spent in the said marriage. The complaint

petition was sent to the police under Section 156(3) of the

Cr.P.C. on the basis of which the Kankarbagh P.S.Case No.420

of 2012 for the offence under Sections 323, 498A, 504, 406, 384

and 120B of the IPC was registered against these petitioners and

husband of the informant. In course of investigation a large of

witnesses have supported the allegation of demand of money by

these petitioners. The witnesses have stated that all the

petitioners assaulted the informant and ousted her from their

house. The allegation of torture and assault is specific against all

the petitioners. The learned Magistrate has rightly taken

cognizance against all the petitioners. It further appears that the
Patna High Court Cr.Misc. No.35683 of 2014 dt.18-09-2017

3/3

court below as per letter no.208 dated 11.09.2017 has reported

that the case is presently running for evidence of prosecution

witnesses.

4. Considering the specific allegation against the

petitioners as regards torture and assault, the order taking

cognizance cannot be said to have been passed in mechanical

manner. As such, the impugned order does not require any

interference.

5. This criminal miscellaneous application is devoid of

merit and is accordingly dismissed.
