4 CrAppln 5170 14J

3. Learned counsel for applicant No. 1 has withdrawn the
application for applicant No. 1. So this application is dismissed as
withdrawn against applicant No. 1.

4. 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. Applicants No. 2 is second wife of applicant no. 1,
applicant No. 3 is mother of applicant No. 1(husband), applicants No. 4
to 7 are sister-in-laws of respondent No. 2 and applicants No. 8 to 15 are
relatives of the applicant No. 1.

(ii) Respondent No. 2/original complainant lodged complaint on
05.07.2014 by alleging that her marriage performed with applicant No. 1
Raju Tadavi prior to 20 years. Out of the wedlock she has one daughter
and two sons. After marriage she went to the house of applicant No. 1
for cohabitation, where applicant No. 1, his mother, sisters, and brothers
were residing jointly. For about three years after the marriage the
respondent No. 2 was treated well by the applicants but thereafter
applicant No. 1 and other family members started illtreating the
respondent No. 2 . In the year 2006-07 applicant No. 1 demanded Rs. 2
lakh for purchasing house. When the respondent No. 2 expressed her
inability to pay the amount, the applicant No. 1 started beating her
severely.

(iii) It is further alleged by the respondent No. 2/original
complainant that on 01.02.2014 the applicants No. 1, 3 to 15 came to the
house of complainant at Badlapur, Mumbai and asked her to sign on a
blank paper and asked to bring Rs. 50,000/- from her brother. When
complainant refused it they threatened to kill the complainant and

assaulted her by fists. It is further alleged that on 12 th and 13th March
2014 again the applicants No. 1, 3 to 15 asked the complainant to sign on
blank paper and demanded Rs. 50,000/- and drover her out of the house
and sent her to Jalgaon. On 15.03.2014 the applicant No. 1 performed
second marriage with applicant No. 2. The applicant No. 13, 14 and 15
and other family members helped applicant No. 1 in his second
marriage. With these allegations, offence came to be registered against
the applicants for the offences punishable under section 498-A, 494,
323, 504 read with section 34 of the Indian Penal Code.

5. We have heard the arguments of Mr. V.B. Patil, learned
counsel for the applicants, Mr. Nerlikar, learned APP for the respondent
No.1/State and Mr. Imran Khan, learned counsel for respondent No. 2.

6. 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 applicants No. 1 (husband). The allegations
against the applicants No. 2 to 15 are vague and general in nature. No
specific instance or particular act alleged or quoted in first information
report against the applicants No. 2 and 15. It also appears that
applicants are residing at different places. Therefore, prima-facie it
appears that the applicants No. 2 to 15 have no concern with the family
matters of complainant and applicant No. 1.

7. In view of the above and on perusal of the first information
report 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. 2 to 15 so as to attract the ingredients of section 498-A
of the Indian Penal Code or other offences as alleged by the

complainant. The complainant has made vague and general allegations
against the applicant No. 2 to 15.

8. On perusal of record it also appears that the applicant No. 1
has given divorce to the respondent No. 2/complainant on 26.02.2014
and the present complaint is filed on 05.07.2014. So also it appears
from record that complainant was not residing with the applicant No. 1
from 15.04.2013, and therefore the applicant No. 1 has issued notice to
the respondent No. 2/complainant for cohabitation. Therefore, the
allegations in the complaint against the applicants appears to be
doubtful.

8. In view of the above, to prevent the abuse of process of law,
we find that discretion needs to be exercised in respect of applicants No.
2 to 15. Hence, following order:

ORDER

1. Application of applicant No. 2 to 15 is allowed.

2. Relief is granted in terms of prayer clause ‘B’ only to the
extent of applicants No. 2 to 15.

3. Rule made absolute in those terms.

9. Criminal application is disposed of.
