I have heard ld. counsel appearing for the parties.

Police Station Mahila Thana, Ajmer for offences punishable under

submitted that the marriage of the petitioner No.1 was solemnized with

the respondent No.2 on 25.04.2007. It is contended that from last ten

years, the respondent No.2 is staying at her parents house. It is alleged

that the istridhan of the complainant has been retained by the accused.

As per Section 181 sub Section 4 Cr.P.C. the accused are bound to

return dowry articles i.e istridhan at the place where the wife is

residing. Offence under Section 406 I.P.C. is a recurring offence. It is

committed on the each day till goods are returned.

Taking totality of circumstances, no ground is made out to

cause interference, qua the petitioners Nos.1 to 3 as against them

specific allegations have been levelled and, thus, the present petition,

qua the petitioner Nos.1 to 3 is dismissed with liberty to raise all

arguments available to them before the trial Court.

The petitioners Nos.4 and 6 are brothers of the husband of

the complainant, whereas the petitioner No.5 is wife of the brother of

the husband of the complainant, they have nothing to gain from the

alleged demand of dowry.

Issue notice to the respondents, qua petitioners Nos.4 to 6

only, for 29.11.2018.

Meanwhile, the further proceedings, qua petitioners Nos.4 to

6 arising out of impugned F.I.R. shall remain stayed.

Considering the age and relationship of the petitioner Nos.2

3 and the fact that they are suffering from ailment, their personal
