Magistrate-1st Class, Darbhanga in connection with Hayaghat

4. Submission of learned counsel for the petitioners is

that the allegation against the petitioners is general and omnibus

rather vague one and since the recent past tendency is growing

5. According to First Information Report, after

marriage the informant went to Delhi along with her husband

where the husband, mother-in-law i.e. petitioner No.1 and others

started demanding dowry. Petitioner No.2, Nasiruddin and his

wife whenever went to Delhi used to instigate others to demand

dowry. When the demand was not fulfilled, petitioner No.2 and

his wife planned to get the husband married with a girl in their

relation. The aforesaid allegation has been supported by the

and after investigation the Police submitted charge sheet.

Patna High Court CR. MISC. No.25927 of 2015 dt.24-07-2019

6. No doubt in some cases the family members are

unnecessarily roped in a criminal proceeding, especially in a case

of matrimonial dispute. However, when the allegation is specific

against the petitioners, this Court cannot disbelieve the allegation

and the statement of the witnesses at this stage to quash the

criminal proceeding. Hence, the impugned order requires no

interference. Accordingly, this application stands dismissed as

devoid of any merit.
