Dowry giving is also a crime under dowry prevention act. This strategy builds on the maxim that offence is the best defence. If the woman party accuses us of taking dowry, case can be filed against them for giving dowry which is a crime.
From judgment at link: http://iitbiimb498a.wordpress.com/vague-allegations-not-acceptable/
In fact, these kinds of allegations made after breakdown of the marriage show the mentality of the complainant. I consider where these kinds of allegations are made, the police should simultaneously register a case under Dowry Prohibition Act (in short ? the Act?) against the parents of the complainant as well, who married their daughter despite demand of dowry. Section 3 of the Act prohibits giving and taking of dowry. If a woman of grown up age and well educated gets married to a person despite dowry demand, she and her family becomes accomplaice in the crime under Dowry Prohibition Act.
Note esp in above case that judge mentions the fact that complainant was an educated woman (an engineer), his brother was in police; and still she chose to marry in a family allegedly demanding dowry. So this is a clear judgment against those women/families who are of good status, education and trying to allege dowry complaint on breakdown/problems in marriage. Go for DP-3 against complainant/ family coz the judge has ordered so !
