and applicant No. 3 and 4 (original accused No. 7 and 8) are the sisters of

original accused No. 1.

(ii) The complainant alleged that her marriage took place with

accused No. 1 on 03.05.2009. Her husband/accused No. 1 is a lecturer in Lal

Bahadur Shastri College, Dharmabad. In the marriage, her parents gave Rs.

9 lakh, gold ornaments, etc. to the accused persons. After marriage

complainant resided with accused No. 1 for one month at village Kasrali.

Thereafter both of them started residing at Dharmabad. Since then applicants

and other accused persons frequently came to her house at Dharmabad and

started teasing her by saying that she has an injury mark on back side, below

the waist and this fact did not disclose by her father and cheated them and

she also doesn’t know proper cooking. It is further alleged by the

complainant that the applicants and other accused persons asked her that if

she wants to reside with them then bring Rs. 7 lakh from her father for

purchasing car and for Ph.D. course of her husband (accused No.1) and on

that count they started illtreating the complainant. On 2.8.2015 when

complainant along with her brother came at Kasarli, applicants and other

accused persons abused and assaulted her and her brother by stick, fist and

kick blows and drove them out. With these allegations, offence came to be

registered against the applicants and other accused for the offences

4 CrAppln 5438 15J
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. Kale, learned counsel for

the applicants, Mr. Dasalar, learned APP for the respondent No.1/State and

Mr. Deshmukh, learned counsel for respondent No. 2.

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

appears that specific allegations of illtreatment, demand of money and

harassment are made against husband/original accused No. 1. The allegations

against the applicants are vague and general in nature. On perusal of record

it appears that the applicants No. 1 and 2 are residing at Nanded and

applicants No. 3 and 4 are residing at Hunmunda Tq. Biloli and the

complainant and her husband were residing at various places i.e. at Kasrali,

Dharmabad and Parbhani. So the allegations against the applicants that they

frequently visited the house of complainant and caused illtreatment to her,

appears to be doubtful.

6. It also appears from record that there is series of cases between

the complainant and original accused No. 1. The complainant has filed

proceeding under Domestic Violence Act; whereas, the original accused

No. 1 has filed petition for divorce petition. So prima-facie on perusal of

record, it appears the complainant has filed present complaint only to harass

the applicants.

5 CrAppln 5438 15J

6. 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, so as to attract the

ingredients of section 498-A of the Indian Penal Code or other offences as

alleged by the complainant. The allegations made in the complaint against

the applicants are vague and general in nature. Hence to prevent the abuse of

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

applicants No. 1 to 4. Hence, following order:

ORDER

1. Application is allowed.

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

present applicants.

7. Criminal Application is disposed of accordingly.

8. Rule is made absolute in the above terms.
