bride jewelery: hiding ax jewelry is not violence .. Supreme Court – daughter in laws jewelery taking for safety not cruelty under section 498a
- Punjabi woman who filed a case against Attinti
- Judgment in the High Court in favor of the woman
- Husband who approached the Supreme Court
A Punjabi woman has filed a case alleging that her in-laws tortured her and harassed her for not taking her jewelery back. The Punjab and Haryana High Court, which heard the case, had earlier ruled that taking the jewelery was tantamount to torturing the ax. The High Court also rejected the husband’s request for permission to travel to the United States. The High Court ruled that she should not go to the United States because her husband was also a defendant in the dowry harassment case.
The husband then approached the Supreme Court. The apex court, which heard the case, held that the woman had only alleged that the accused had ruined her life and that there was no clear evidence that the jewelery had been taken. However, she said that storing jewelry does not lead to harassment. The Supreme Court said it did not understand why the husband was ordered to stay in the country when there was no evidence of torture. Recently, the Supreme Court gave a landmark judgment in another case. Bringing a wife money to build a house is said to be subject to dowry harassment. A woman from Madhya Pradesh committed suicide after being harassed by her husband and in-laws for dowry. The Supreme Court made these remarks as part of the trial in the case.
