IPC 211 and 511 (Eleven In BOTH the cases)
211 :- is applicable (when a false 498a case is going on i.e. UNDER TRIAL)-(Imp : SAME COURT AND SAME MEGISTRATE CAN TAKE CONGNIZANCE- NOT EVEN HC/SC).
The Result of husband filing 211 : If the husband side is convicted then husband side GOES TO JAIL (Convicted) – (husband side NOT loosing anything here as they are already accussed), if husband side is NOT CONVICTED (Acquitted) then the WIFE SIDE GOES TO JAIL… (3 CHEERS HERE….). HERE IS THE POINT.
IPC 511 : Illustration : If a pocket picker puts his hand in the pocket of a person (EXPECTING SOME MONEY) and after putting HIS HAND HE FINDS NO MONEY INSIDE, THAT MEANS HE HAS DONE A CRIME OF “POCKET PICKING”….
Similiarly : If the wife files a false 498a complaint against the husband and the family (thinking that they will pay her xx Lakhs !) , AND AFTER FILING SHE COMES TO KNOW THAT ‘NOTHING’ (No money) is there in the pocket the SHE HAS DONE THE CRIME OF ‘BLACKMAILING’…)
Best of All : 511 IS APPLICALBLE FOR BOTH THE GENDERS….
I put in more simple scenerio : If a wife, files a false complaint KNOWINGY, that husband will SURRENDER TO HER DEMANDS (after false 498a), BUT AFTER FILING ITv (a false dowry case), SHE COMES TO KNOW THAT HUSBAND DOESNT HAVE ANYTHING TO PAY (Pocket EMPTY !!!!) THAT MEANS, THE WIFE HAS DONE THE CRIME OF BLACKMAILING (506).
To be more simpler, If the husband is a RICKSHAW PULLER, THEN WHO WILL FILE A FALSE 498A (Or 304B) case against him ????? (Gareeb HO JAAO)….
I add to that : Even the “Motor Vehicle Act” Exempts the RICKSHAW PULLERS..Rickshaws DONT have MOTORS – MVA is NOT applicable, Then how could we expect A FALSE 498A AGAINST A RICKSHAW PULLER.
Money is NOT everything, BUT ITS SOMETHING, SAVE IT AND PRESERVE IT….no one knows when would u need it..
