2. This writ petition has been filed by the petitioners for

quashing of the first information report of Muzaffarpur Mahila P.S.

Patna High Court Cr. WJC No.155 of 2018 dt.02-01-2019

Dowry Prohibition Act.

3. On perusal of the first information report as

contained in Annexure-P/1, I find that ingredients of the offences

alleged are clearly attracted.

4. Moreover, in course of investigation conducted by

the police, the allegations subjecting the informant to cruelty for

non-fulfilment of demand of dowry were found true and the police

submitted charge-sheet against the petitioners on 09.01.2017 vide

charge-sheet no.76 of 2016 whereafter the learned Magistrate has

already taken cognizance of the offences vide order dated

11.01.2017.

5. In that view of the matter, I see no merit in this

application. The writ petition is dismissed.
