SC's big verdict: Everything demanded by in-laws will be considered as dowry

Bhopal: The Supreme Court has also blamed the demand for money for the construction of the house as dowry. A bench of Chief Justice NV Ramana, Justice AS Bopanna and Justice Hima Kohli said, "The word dowry should be described as a broad era to incorporate any demand from a woman, whether in connection with the property or anything valuable.'' The trial court had convicted the husband and father-in-law of the deceased in the case under Section 304-B (dowry murder), inciting self-pleasure and dowry harassment of IPC.

It was found that the criminal was demanding money from the dying woman to build a house, which her family members were unable to pay. A provision to act as a deterrent in society and to prevent heinous crimes of dowry demand, changes in the attitude of courts should be the most moderate. The woman was constantly harassed about it, which made her commit suicide. On an appeal filed against the verdict, the MP High Court said, the demand for money for the construction of the house cannot be treated as a dowry demand.

Rejecting the mother-in-law's appeal in another dowry harassment case, the Supreme Court said, "When only one woman does not save another woman, it is a serious crime. The court convicted the mother-in-law and sentenced her to three months in jail. The court said it is a very frightening situation when a woman is so cruel to her own daughter-in-law that she takes a step of suicide.
