Supreme Court slaps ₹5 lakh costs on father of Rajasthan cop for misusing State machinery

The Court was hearing an appeal filed challenging a Rajasthan High Court’s refusal to quash the case filed by the Rajasthan police against a man under Section 498A of the Indian Penal Code (cruelty to a married woman).

The accused man claimed that two criminal cases had been lodged against him on the same set of allegations in two districts, Udaipur (Rajasthan) and Hisar (Haryana).

The complainant was the father of a police officer who had married the accused man (appellant) in 2015.

Months later, a criminal case alleging marital cruelty was filed in Haryana against the appellant. A first information report (FIR) was registered in the matter on October 17, 2015, following the October 10 complaint.

However, except for the appellant, no one appeared during the trial of the case in Haryana or pursued the case further over there.

Meanwhile, a complaint was also lodged in Udaipur against the appellant citing similar allegations. This complaint was filed on October 15, 2015, and an FIR was registered on November 1, 2015.
