3 CrAppln 6875 17J
information report No. 30/2017 dated 07.04.2017, registered with Bamani

police station, District Parbhani, for the offences punishable under section

498A, 323, 504, 506 read with section 34 of the Indian Penal Code.

3. Complainant Parvati Suresh Batle lodged complaint to the police

station Bamani, District Parbhani, on 07.04.2017, alleging that she is married

lady having son namely Vikas, aged about 21 years and daughter namely

Santoshi aged about 23 years. The marriage of her son Vikas is arranged and

settled with a girl from the relative of complainant namely Pratibha.

Thereupon all these accused persons were illtreating mentally and physically

to the complainant on the ground that why she is not settling the marriage of

her son with a girl of their relative.

4. On perusal of the entire allegations in the first information report

it appears that no where it is mentioned in the first information report that

how the applicants are related to the complainant. It is also not clear that

whether they are in-laws of the complainant or otherwise.

5. The ground for alleged illtreatment is that the marriage of the

son of complainant was arranged and settled with a girl from the relative of

the complainant and complainant is not ready to settle the marriage of her son

with a girl from the family of applicants/accused persons. The allegations

made in the first information report are absolutely vague in material

particulars.

6. The offence is registered against the applicants under the

provisions of section 498A of the Indian Penal Code coupled with other

offences. While registration of the crime the investigating officer or the

police officer has not understood the provisions of section 498A and has

blindly registered the offence under section 498A read with section 34 of the

Indian Penal Code and that too without application of mind. How the

applicants are related to the husband of the complainant has not been

clarified, therefore, it is very difficult even prima-facie to infer that the

present applicants are in-laws or relatives of husband. Therefore, criminal

proceeding on such a vague allegations cannot be allowed to be continued. In

view of the above, following order is passed.

ORDER

1 The application is allowed.

2 Relief is granted in terms of prayer clause ‘B’.

3 Fees of appointed counsel is quantified to Rs. 3000/- (Rs.
Three Thousand only).

7. Rule is made absolute in aforesaid terms.

8 Criminal Application is disposed of.
