3. The brief facts of the case may be stated as follows:

(i) The applicant No. 1 (original accused No. 1 ) is the husband
of respondent No. 2 (original complainant), applicants No. 2 and 3 are
father-in-law and mother-in-law of the respondent no. 2, applicant No. 4
and 5 are brother-in-law and sister-in-law of the respondent no. 2,
applicant No. 6 is cousin father-in-law of the respondent No. 2, applicant
No. 7 is brother of applicant No. 2 and applicant No. 8 is wife of
applicant No. 7.

(ii) Respondent No. 2/original complainant lodged complaint by
alleging that, her marriage performed with accused No. 1 Ananda on
11.05.2012 at village Maheji Nandra Tq. Pachora. She treated well for
about three to four months and thereafter applicant No. 1 demanded her
for Rs. 5 lakh for grocery shop and on that count he assaulted and
abused the respondent No. 2/original complainant and drove her out.
When respondent No. 2 came at her paternal house she told about the
illtreatment and demand of money to her father, mother and sister.
When respondent No. 2 returned to her matrimonial home at that time
applicants No. 6, 7 and 8 were present there. Applicant No. 1 asked the
respondent No. 2 whether she has brought Rs. 5 lakh or not. When
respondent No. 2 told them that due to poor financial condition her
father is unable to fulfill their demand at that time all applicants No. 2 to
8 instigated applicant No. 1 for giving divorce to respondent No. 2 and
drove her out. At that time all the applicants assaulted her her with fist
and kick blows and drove her out of the house. With these allegations,
offence came to be registered against the applicants and other accused

persons for the offences punishable under section 498-A, 323, 504, 506
read with section 34 of the Indian Penal Code.

4. We have heard the arguments of Mr. Patil, learned counsel
for the applicants, Mr. Nerlikar, learned APP for the respondent
No.1/State and Mr. Padalkar, learned counsel for respondent No. 2.

5. On perusal of the contents of the first information report it
appears that specific allegations of illtreatment, demand of money and
assault are made against husband/original accused No. 1. The allegations
against the applicants No. 4 to 8 are vague and general in nature. It is
alleged against the applicants No. 4 to 8 that they instigated the husband
of respondent No. 2 for demanding money and abused her and drove her
out. No specific instance or particular act alleged or quoted in first
information report against the applicants No. 4 to 8. It also appears
applicant No. 6 is residing at Khalane and applicants No. 7 and 8 are
residing at Kalyan, Dist. Thane. They are distant relatives of the
applicant No. 1. Therefore, prima-facie it appears that there is no force
in the allegations of the complainant against the applicants No. 4 to 8.

6. In view of the above and on perusal of the first information
report as well as statement of witnesses it also appears that there is no
material particular quoting any specific incident of visit or about
illtreatment or harassment at the hands of applicants No. 4 to 8, so as to
attract the ingredients of section 498-A of the Indian Penal Code or
other offences as alleged by the complainant. Hence to prevent the abuse

of process of law, we find that discretion needs to be exercised in respect
of applicants No. 4 to 8. Hence, following order:


1. Application of applicants No. 1 to 3 is disposed of as

2. Application of applicants No. 4 to 8 is allowed. Relief is
granted in their favour in terms of prayer clause ‘B’.

3. Rule made absolute in those terms.
