Swapnil Kolhe and others vs Smt Kirti Kolhe

Madhya Pradesh HC, Indore Bench

26/08/2014

M.Cr.C. No. 8955/2013

About/from the judgment:

Protection of Women From Domestic Violence Act. Limitation one year.

 

From the reading of both the aforesaid complaints it can be inferred that the respondent has alleged that she was subjected to cruelty in connection with the demand of dowry. It is evident that the Hon'ble Supreme Court after considering all the facts and circumstances of the case quashed the criminal proceedings which were initiated in pursuance to the FIR dated 02/05/2012. And having being found that the respondent has more or less alleged similar allegations against the Petitioners in the complaint u/s 12 of the Act., and there is no allegation by the respondent that between 02/05/2012 to 17/05/2012, she was subjected to cruelty. From the above analysis I found that it is a fit case for quashment of complaint.
