for relief of quashing the first information report No. 515/2017 registered

with Peth Beed police station for the offences punishable under section

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

3. The brief facts of the case may be stated as follows:

(i) The applicant No. 1 is the husband of respondent No. 2.

Applicants No. 2 and 3 are father and mother of applicant No. 1. The

applicants No. 4 and 6 are brothers of applicant No. 1, whereas applicant

No. 5 is wife of applicant No. 4. The applicants No. 7 and 8 are the

sisters of applicant No. 1.

(ii) Respondent No. 2/original complainant lodged complaint on

13.12.2017 by alleging that, her marriage performed with applicant

No. 1 Mustak on 31.05.2015. After the marriage for about two months

the complainant was treated well by the applicants. Thereafter the

applicants started demanding Rs. 10 lakh, towards the rent of Helicopter

which was brought in the marriage of complainant and also demanded

Rs. 20 lakh towards marriage expenses and on that count the applicants

were assaulted and abused to the complainant. The complainant has

narrated the above illtreatment to her parents and other relatives. The

parents and relatives of the complainant gave understanding to the

applicants but the applicants did not pay any heed and again started

mentally and physically illtreating the complainant. With these

allegations, offence came to be registered against the applicants for the

offences punishable under section 498-A, 323, 504, 506 read with

section 34 of the Indian Penal Code.

4. We have heard the arguments of Mr. Jadhav, learned counsel

for the applicants, Mr. Nerlikar, learned APP for the respondent

No.1/State and Mr. Savant, learned counsel for respondent No. 2.

Learned counsel for applicants, on instructions, withdraw the

application for applicants No. 1 to 3.

5. On perusal of the contents of the first information report it

appears that the allegations against the applicants No. 4 to 8 are vague

and general in nature. No specific instance or particular act alleged or

quoted in first information report against the applicants No. 4 to 8. On

perusal of record it appears that though the applicants no. 4 to 8 are

residing at Karmad, but they are not residing with applicant No. 1. It

appears that the applicants No. 7 and 8 are married sisters of the

applicant No. 1 and they are residing in their matrimonial house. The

applicants No. 4 and 6 are also residing separately from the applicant

No. 1.

5 CrAppln 73 18J

6. In view of the above and on perusal of the first information

report it appears that there is no material particular, quoting any specific

incident of visit or about illtreatment or harassment at the hands of

applicants No.4 to 8 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

applicants No. 4 to 8. Therefore, prima-facie it appears that on the basis

of vague allegations, only to harass the applicants No. 4 to 8 the

complainant roped them in the present crime. Hence to prevent the

abuse of process of law, we find that discretion needs to be exercised in

respect of applicants No. 4 to 8. Hence, following order:

ORDER

1. Application of applicants No. 4 to 8 is allowed in terms of
prayer clause ‘B’.

2. Application of applicants No. 1 to 3 is disposed of as
withdrawn.

3. Rule made absolute in those terms.

7. Criminal application is disposed of.
