Nagpur: High Court quashes FIR filed by daughter-in-law against retired judge, family members
The Nagpur Bench of Bombay High Court has quashed an FIR registered against a retired judge and his family members by the judges daughter-in-law. Vima Diwekar, the daughter in law of retired Civil Judge Sr. Division Gautam Diwekar, had filed a complaint against him and his family members at the Avdhootwadi Police Station in Yavatmal.
After her complaint, the police had booked Gautam Diwekar, Anusuya Diwekar (Vimas Mother-in-law), Pankaj Diwekar (Vimas Husband), Anita Telang (Vimas Sister-in-law), Niranjan Telang (Vimas Brother-in-law), and Savita Bagde (Vimas Sister-in-law) under sections 498 A (Husband or relative of husband of a woman subjecting her to cruelty), 34, 504 (intentional insult with intent to provoke breach of peace) and 506 (criminal intimidation) of the IPC.
Vima had alleged in the complaint that the accused started harassing her immediately after the marriage and started pressuring her to get a dowry of Rs 3 lakhs from her parents. She alleged that she was mentally and physically harassed by the accused and they wanted her to leave the home. Vima also claimed that there was a threat to her and her childrens lives.
During the hearing in front of the bench comprising Justice VM Deshpande and Justice Anil Kilore, advocate Kartik N Shukul, assisted by advocate Abhilash Shriwas and advocate Amir Quereshi, argued that the FIR was an afterthought and that there is no evidence to suggest that the allegations made by the complainant are true.
Advocate Shukul also argued that there was a delay of 11 years in filing the FIR and that the FIR was filed only after the SDO passed an order under the Maintenance and Welfare of Parents and Senior Citizens Act – 2007?, whereby the SDO had granted possession of the house to the applicant Gautam Diwekar.
Advocate Shukul said before the court that having failed to retain possession of the apartment, the FIR was filed to harass the retired judge and his family. The house was in the name of Gautam Diwekar and this was duly reflected in the revenue records.
After the hearing, the HC allowed both the applications and quashed the FIR registered against the accused persons.
