 Appellate Authority
 Joint Commissioner of Police
 
 Sub:- Appeal u/s 19(1) r/w Section 20 of RTI Act 2005 for Matter arising out of absence of any response from the Public Information Officer within prescribed time.
 
 References:-
 1. RTI Application dated xx/xx/2010 (Annexure 1)
 
 Sir
 The applicant/undersigned is compelled to make this appeal as the Public Information Officer, xxxxxxxxxx, New Delhi has not supplied any information in regards to above mentioned references till date and hence deemed refused in view of section 7(2) of RTI Act 2005.
 
 The requisite time for supply of information (48 hrs under Life and Liberty vide section 7(1)) has already expired. The RTI application was filed for reply within 48 hrs as the information concerns life and liberty of the applicant is restricted being in arrest as per records of P.S. xxxx vide FIR No. xx/xxxx.
 
 It appears from the above mentioned facts that the staff of RTI Cell of xxxxxxxxx, Delhi has no honor and regard for the Constitution of India, RTI Act 2005 as well as for the directions of Hon’ble Supreme Court of India as they deliberately, malafidely and negligently refused and overlooked to the directions of citation referred in the RTI Applications explaining the matter of Life and Liberty and hence are guilty of Contempt of RTI Act as well as of Hon’ble Supreme Court Order. The applicant while requesting information, relied on the case of Sheela Barse V. State of Maharashtra, AIR 1983 SC 378 where it was held that :-
 
The operation of Art. 21, insofar as it imposes procedural limitation on a law that effects personal liberty, commences as soon as interference with personal liberty commences and ends only when that interference ceases. Hence, this article becomes relevant as soon a person is arrested, and it remains relevant so long as he remains subject to a criminal prosecution that has resulted or might result in the deprivation of his personal liberty.
 
 It is therefore the applicant/undersigned most humbly prays to dispose off this appeal within 48 hrs as the matter pertains to life and liberty as explained above with the followings in this regard in the interest of justice :-

 1. The Public information Officer be directed to immediately release the complete information as requested vide all applications/letters mentioned in Reference above.

 3. The applicant/undersigned make kindly be exempted in view of section 7(6) of RTI Act 2005 from payment of any fee payable by me on account of default on the part of PIO to supply information within prescribed time.

 4. To initiate action u/s 20 of RTI Act 2005 as well as section 166 of IPC against the concerned staff responsible for delay

RTI - LAW - Double maintenance - legal affair dept

Dt.
 To,
 M.K Sharma,
 CPIO and Additional Legal Adviser
 Ministry of Law & Justice, Deptt. of Legal Affairs
 Room No. 417-A,
 A-Wing, Shastri Bhawan,
 New Delhi - 110001
 
 Sub: A petition for information under “Right to information act–2005” regarding “Multiple provision of maintenance for wife in family dispute”
 
Enclosed a postal order no: of each Rs. 10-00 in favour of the accounts officer, Legal affairs, Ministry of Law & Justice, New Delhi.

 Dear Sir,
 
 ABOUT MYSELF: I am ______, a resident of_________, state:___________
 
 ISSUE: This is a petition under “Right to information act–2005” regarding “Multiple provision of maintenance for wife in family dispute” I want to bring to your kind attention and notice a recent trend in the courts dealing with the family disputes between husband and wife. In case of dispute between husband and wife reaching courts the wife is seeking maintenance from the husband under various provisions of the law. In case the couple is Hindus then it is seen that the wife is seeking maintenance under atleast three provisions.
 
 1. Domestic violence act:
 
 I have reproduced the section 20(3) of the Domestic violence act below.
 
 20(3) the Magistrate shall have the power to order an appropriate lump sum payment or monthly payments of maintenance, as the nature and circumstances of the case may require.
 
 2. Code of Criminal Procedure 1973:
 
 I have reproduced the section 125 of Code of Criminal Procedure 1973 below.
 125. Order for maintenance of wives, children and parents.
 (1) If any person leaving sufficient means neglects or refuses to maintain-
 (a) His wife, unable to maintain herself, or
 (b) His legitimate or illegitimate minor child, whether married or not, unable to maintain itself, or
 (c) His legitimate or illegitimate child (not being a married daughter) who has attained majority, where such child is, by reason of any physical or mental abnormality or injury unable to maintain itself, or
 (d) His father or mother, unable to maintain himself or herself,

 A Magistrate of' the first class may, upon proof of such neglect or refusal, order such person to make a monthly allowance for the maintenance of his wife or such child, father or mother, at such monthly rate as such magistrate thinks fit, and to pay the same to such person as the Magistrate may from time to time direct.
 
 3. The Hindu Marriage Act , 1955:
 
 I have reproduced the section 25 of Code of Criminal Procedure 1973 below.
 
 25. Permanent alimony and maintenance.- (1) Any court exercising jurisdiction under this Act may, at the time of passing any decree or at any time subsequent thereto, on application made to it for the purpose by either the wife or the husband, as the case may be, order that the respondent shall, while the applicant remains unmarried, pay to the applicant for her or his maintenance and support such gross sum or such monthly or periodical sum for a term not exceeding the life of the applicant as, having regard to the respondent's own income and other property, if any, the income and other property of the applicant and the conduct of the parties, it may seem to the court to be just, and any such payment may be secured, if necessary, by a charge on the immovable property of the respondent.

 It is seen as a trend in the courts dealing with the family disputes between husband and wife that in order to harass the husband, wifes are filing for maintenance under all the available sections, Acts and forums with identical petitions with identical relief. In turn the husbands are running around all the courts with defending all the cases wherein identical accusations are made. This amounts to “Double jeopardy” for husbands. Even in various acts and also in constitution of India it barred to put a person on trial for same offence twice.
 
 1. Section 71, second Para, Indian Penal Code.
“Section 71. Limit of punishment of offence made up of several offences
 Where anything which is an offence is made up of parts, any of which parts is itself an offence, the offender shall not be punished with the punishment of more than one of such his offences, unless it be so expressly provided.
 [Where anything is an offence falling within two or more separate definitions of any law in force for the time being by which offences are defined or punished, or
 Where several acts, of which one or more than one would by itself or themselves constitute an offence, constitute, when combined, a different offence,
 The offender shall not be punished with a more severe punishment then the Court which tries him could award for any one such offences.]”
 
2. Section 26, General Clauses Act, 1897.
“26. Provisions as to offences punishable under two or more enactments.- Where an act or omission constitutes an offence under two or more enactments, then the offender shall be liable to be prosecuted and punished under either or any of those enactments, but shall not be liable to be punished twice for the same offence.”
 
3. Article 20, Constitution of India.
 20. Protection in respect of conviction for offences.—(1) No person shall be convicted of any offence except for violation of a law in force at the time of the commission of the Act charged as an offence, nor be subjected to a penalty greater than that which might have been inflicted under the law in force at the time of the commission of the offence.
 (2) No person shall be prosecuted and punished for the same offence more than once.
 (3) No person accused of any offence shall be compelled to be a witness against himself.
 
 4. Section 300 of the Code of Criminal Procedure, 1973 lays down;
“300. Persons once convicted or acquitted not to be tried for same offence—
(1) A person who has once been tried by a Court of competent jurisdiction for an offence and convicted or acquitted of such offence shall, while such conviction or acquittal remains in force, not be liable to be tried again for the same offence, nor on the same facts for any other offence for which a different charge from the one made against him might have been made under sub-section (1) of Section 221, or for which he might have been convicted under sub-section (2) thereof”.
 
SUGGESTIONS:
 So it is clear that even though there is a bar on “Double jeopardy” in the constitution of India and in various other acts but still courts are allowing and accepting multiple maintenance petitions. Only way to solve this issue is by simplifying the maintenance laws in India i.e. by allowing maintenance just under one act and by abolishing all other maintenance under all other acts.
 
REQUEST FOR INFORMATION:
 Dear Sir, please provide me the following information.
 1. Is your department aware about the issues faced by lakhs of husbands facing maintenance cases under different sections of the Acts.
 2. Is your department aware about loss of precious times of the various courts in deciding the same issue under various acts?
 3. If the answers to the above questions are yes, then what steps are being taken by your department/ministry to address this issues.

 Thanking you sir,

 Yours truly,

First Appeal TEP RTI

Reference No:

 Dated: __________
 
 To,
 Appellant Authority

 Sub: - First Appeal under 19 (1) of RTI Act, 2005

 Reference: _____________dated ________________
 
 Dear Sir /Madam,
 
 The appellant is constrained to file a First Appeal u/s 19 (1) of RTI Act to your esteemed office against not providing information by CPIO
 
 The brief FACTS of this matter are:-
 
 That the appellant has submitted RTI application under RTI Act 2005 to “in the office of CPIO, Range-VI, O/o Add Commissioner of IncomeTax – Range--------- (Attached as Annexure-A).
 
 That the “CPIO has not provided any answer of my application or manipulated the answer. (Attached CPIO replies as Annexure-B)
 
 My GROUNDS for the appeal are as follows:-
 
 BECAUSE, Smt --------- D/o Shri ---------- admitted an expenditure of Rs.----- lacks by her parents in her own Shri ----------- may have taken a bribe or collect Rs. -------lacks from undisclosed sources because of such kind of people our country is facing money loss in present case servey u/s 133A(5) is required by Income Tax.
 
• Since total expenditure of Rs -------- lacs has been claimed by in-laws, so it is a natural curiosity that what was the source of fund .If you disclose it then doubt of black money will be removed from my mind and this way the information will fulfill the objective of RTI to check the corruption as said by Hon'ble justice Shri Pradeep Kant in the recent judgement under Writ Petition No. 3262 (MB) of 2008,Public Information OfficerVs. State Information Commission, U.P. and others,
“....Our Constitution establishes a democratic republic. Democracy requires an informed citizenry and transparency of information which are vital to its functioning........The purpose and object of the act is not only to provide information but to keep a check on corruption, and for that matter confers a right upon the citizens to have the necessary information, ….”
 
2. BECAUSE Mr FIL NAME may be taken bribe of evaded tax as they have claimed XYZ lacs spent in marriage and because of such kind of people our contry is facing Money Loss in present case servey u/s 133A(5) for marriage expenditure is required by Income Tax Officer.
 
 3. BECAUSE, The appellant has enclosed a copy of relevant judgments before CPIO, along with original application which is a same kind of TEP / RTI matter related to dowry matter “Honorable High Court wide Decision No WP(C) No.3114/2007
 
In view of the foregoing discussion the order of the CIC dated 8th May 2006 in so far as it withholds information until tax recovery orders are made, is set aside. The second and third respondents are directed to release the information sought, on the basis of the materials available and collected with them, within two weeks.
 
 This Court takes a serious note of the two year delay in releasing information, the lack of adequate reasoning in the orders of the Public Information Officer and the Appellate Authority and the lack of application of mind in relation to the nature of information sought. The materials on record clearly show the lackadaisical approach of the second and third respondent in releasing the information sought.
 
 4. BECAUSE, Honorable Chief Information Commissioner Shri Shailesh Gandhi Wide Decision No. CIC/LS/A/2009/000647/SG/5887 dated 14-12-2009 in TEP / RTI matter where he defines the concept Section 8(1)(h) of the Act provides-
 
 8. (1) Notwithstanding anything contained in this Act, there shall be no obligation to give any citizen,—
 
 (h) information which would impede the process of investigation or apprehension or prosecution of offenders;
 
Dr. Naresh Trehan, one of the third parties, and the Department have relied on this ground of exemption. Both parties have stated that as the process of assessment has not been finalized till date and Investigation is still underway, exemption under Section 8(1)(h) applies. But the mere fact that an investigation is underway and that assessment has not been finalized is not a sufficient ground for the application of Section 8(1)(h).
 
 The High Court of Delhi has held in Bhagat Singh v. CIC & Ors. WP (C) No. 3114/2007 that-
 
“It is apparent that the mere existence of an investigation process cannot be a ground for refusal of the information; the authority withholding information must show satisfactory reasons as to why the release of such information would hamper the investigation process. Such reasons should be germane, and the opinion of the process being hampered should be reasonable and based on some material. Sans this consideration, Section 8(1)(h) and other such provisions would become the haven for dodging demands for information” The PIO has contention that,
 
“Logically no investigation could be said to be complete unless it has reached a point where the final decision on the basis of that investigation is taken. In this context the progress of assessments are therefore exempt from disclosure under Section 8(1)(h)”, only states that the investigation is not over. No claim has been made that the process of investigation would be impeded in any manner.
 
 Neither party has been able to establish before the Commission how the disclosure of information to the Appellant would impede the process of investigation. Therefore, Section 8(1)(h) cannot be applied in the present case to claim exemption from disclosure of information.
 
 The disclosure of the information would lead to unwarranted invasion of the privacy of the individual.
 
 Certain human rights such as liberty, freedom of expression or right to life are universal and therefore would apply uniformly to all human-beings worldwide. However, the concept of 'privacy' is a cultural notion, related to social norms, and different societies would look at these differently. Therefore referring to laws of other countries to define ‘privacy’ cannot be considered a valid exercise to constrain the Citizen’s fundamental Right to Information in India. Parliament has not codified the right to privacy so far, hence in balancing the Right to Information of Citizens and the individual's Right to Privacy the Citizen's Right to Information would be given greater weightage.
 
 5. BECAUSE, Honorable Central Information Commissioner Prof. M.M. Ansari Wide Decision No.174/IC(A)/2006 in same kind of TEP/RTI matter :
 
 Every action taken by public bodies or public servants and its outcome should be under the domain of public for open scrutiny. It follows that the proceedings initiated by the income-tax department, in pursuance of the tax evasions petition (TEP), and its outcomes should be disclosed, even without asking for such information by the petitioners.
 
 As regards the disclosure of tax assessment orders passed by the assessing officers is concerned, such documents should also be disclosed provided that larger public interest such as containing corruption is served. In the present case, the appellant has not established as to what is the overriding public interest in disclosing the details of tax assessment orders which contains confidential business and financial transactions of the assessees. Unless the case of public interest is established, the disclosure of such information would tantamount to unwarranted invasion of privacy of assessees. Therefore, the decision of appellate authority is upheld. The CPIO is, however, directed to furnish the Action Taken Report on the TEP filed by the appellant. The appeal is accordingly disposed of.
 
 6. BECAUSE, Honorable Central Information Commissioner Shri M.L.Shrma wide Decision No. CIC/AT/A/2008/01389 dated 28-01-2009 in a same kind of RTI of dowry matter direct AA Income Tax
 
 In view of the above, Ms. Vandana Ramachandran (AA) is hereby directed to disclose the above mentioned information to the Appellant within two weeks time.
 
 7. BECAUSE, Honorable Information Commissioner Shri Sailesh Gandhi of CIC bearing his Decision No. CIC/SG/C/2009/000702/4128 dated 14-07-2009 where he defines the concept of privacy, which may act as a guidance for every public information officer
 
 This information is very important for the Complainant as he is facing a threat of arrest and needs the information to prove his innocence. Not granting such information clearly leads to violation of the fundamental right of the Complainant as provided under Article 21 of the Constitution. If The Complainant has more than one way of seeking remedy he has the freedom to opt for the way which is more convenient for him. No claim has been made by the PIO of any exemption under the RTI Act to deny the information. If a Public Authority has a procedure of disclosing certain information which can also be accessed by a Citizen using the Right to Information Act, it is the Citizen’s prerogative to decide which route he wishes to take. The existence of another method of accessing information cannot be a justification to deny the Citizen his freedom to exercise his fundamental right codified under the Right to Information Act. If the Parliament wanted to restrict this right, it would have been stated expressly in the Act. Nobody else has the right to constrain or limit the rights of the Sovereign Citizen. There is no provision in the Right to Information Act which restrains the Citizen’s right to use it if another route to access information has been offered. It is a Citizen’s right to use the most convenient and efficacious means available to him.
 
 8. BECAUSE, Honorable Chief Information Commissioner Shri Wajahat Habibullah of CIC bearing no CIC/WB/A/2007/00064 dated 19-11-2007 where he defines the concept of privacy ,which may act as a guidance for every public information officer “We have in earlier decisions also sought guidance from the U.K. Data Protection Act, 1998 on the definition of private information u/s 2, which defines ‘Sensitive Personal Data’, which reads as follows:
 
 In this Act “sensitive personal data” means personal data consisting of information as to:
 a) The racial or ethnic origin of the data subject
 b) His political opinions
 c) His religious beliefs or other beliefs of a similar nature
 d) Whether he is a member of a Trade Union
 e) His physical or mental health or condition
 f) His sexual life
 g) The commission or alleged commission by him of any offence
 h) Any proceedings for any offence committed or alleged to have been committed by him, the disposal of such proceedings or the sentence of any court in such proceedings.

 If we were to construe privacy to mean protection of personal data, this would be a suitable reference point to help define the concept.”
 
9. BECAUSE, “In Peoples Union of Civil Liberties Vs. Union of India, however, in his judgment of 13.2.2003 Shri P.V. Reddy J. has ruled as follows :

 "When there is a competition between the right to privacy of an individual and the right to information of the citizens, the former right has to be subordinated to the latter right as it serves larger public interest. The right to know about the candidate who intends to become a public figure and a representative of the people would not be effective and real if only truncated information of the assets and liabilities is given.”
 
10. BECAUSE, Further for contesting the election every candidate is required to provide information regarding his property/assets during filing of nomination which is disclosed even in news papers and media so that every citizen can know the assets of the candidate. When such rigorous norms are fixed for Candidates for elections, who are in service for only the limited term of their office, the government servants, engaged in life long service cannot be exempted. Rather I am of the opinion that the public authorities should Suo Moto publish these information in their official websites under Section 4 of the RTI Act. This action is expected in the light of decision of Hon’ble Supreme Court of India in ‘Civil Appeal No. 7178 of 2001- Union of India Vs Association for Democratic Reforms and another’
 
11. BECAUSE, It becomes increasingly imminent and added responsibility of the concerned authorities to make an enquiry into such allegations and ascertain the actual truth behind the true source, if any, of these alleged payments / expenses, so as that innocent people like me does not get harassed due to the ultier motives of some mischievous people.
 
 12. BECAUSE, Sections 8 did not justify withholding of the said information, but incorrectly applied Sec 8 of the Act. He submits that the disclosure of the said information could not in any way impede the investigation process and that the Respondents have not given any reasons as to how such disclosure would hamper investigation. On the other hand, contends, the information would only help in absolving undersigned from the false prosecution and criminal harassment.
 
 13. BECAUSE, as to the issue of whether the investigation has been complete or not, I think that the authorities have not applied their mind about the nature of information sought. As is submitted by the Petitioner, he merely seeks access to the preliminary reports investigation pursuant to which notices under Sections 131, 143(2), 148 of the Income Tax have been issued and not as to the outcome of the investigation and reassessment carried on by the Assessing Officer. As held in the preceding part of the judgment, without a disclosure as to how the investigation process would be hampered by sharing the materials collected till the notices were issued to the assesses, the respondents could not have rejected the request for granting information.
 
14. BECAUSE, Access to information, under Section 3 of the Act, is the rule and exemptions under Section 8, the exception. Section 8 being a restriction on this fundamental right, must therefore is to be strictly construed. It should not be interpreted in manner as to shadow the very right itself. Under Section 8, exemption from releasing information is granted if it would impede the process of investigation or the prosecution of the offenders. It is apparent that the mere existence of an investigation process cannot be a ground for refusal of the information; the authority withholding information must show satisfactory reasons as to why the release of such information would hamper the investigation process. Such reasons should be germane, and the opinion of the process being hampered should be reasonable and based on some material. Sans this consideration, Section 8(1)(h) and other such provisions would become the haven for dodging demands for information.
 
 15. BECAUSE, The State has no right to invade the privacy of an individual. There are some extraordinary situations where the State may be allowed to invade the privacy of a Citizen. In those circumstances special provisions of the law apply; usually with certain safeguards.
 
 Therefore where the State routinely obtains information from Citizens, this information is in relationship to a public activity and will not be an intrusion on privacy. As this information has been provided by the assessee to meet his legal obligations, there is no unwarranted invasion of his privacy by the state. Therefore the disclosure of the same information to another person cannot be construed as being an unwarranted invasion of the privacy of the individual. Given our dismal record of misgovernance and rampant corruption which colludes to deny Citizens their essential rights and dignity, it is in the fitness of things that the Citizen’s Right to Information is given greater primacy with regard to privacy. Hence information provided by individuals in fulfillment of statutory requirements will not be covered by the exemption under Section 8 (1) (j). Citizen’s Right to Information is given greater primacy with regard to privacy.
 
 16. BECAUSE, as per provision of the act before the rejection of the application on the ground of the CPIO should asked the third party and also should have given me a opportunity to present my case.
 
 17. BECAUSE, the large public interest which overwrites the third party interest, the PIO has failed to act so.

 18. BECAUSE, the PIO has failed to access the information available to him in his statutory capacity as PIO u/s 5(1) of RTI Act read with 5 (4) and 5 (5) of the RTI Act.
 
 According the appellant is constrained to PRAY for the following reliefs:

 That the PIO be ordered to provide the appellant the requested information forthwith
 
 2. That a personal hearing be afforded to the appellant u/s 19(5) of RTI Act and interests of natural justice in the event the PIO opts to justify and/ or prove the willful denial of information to the appellant.
 
 3. That a copy of comments/ reply of PIO, if any, to this First Appeal be provided to the appellant well in advance of the hearing date.
 
 Moreover as per RTI act 2005 section 8(j) itself it is written that “Provided that the information which cannot be denied to the Parliament or a State Legislature shall not be denied to any person”
 
Now at the end I may reasonably expect that honorable CPIO & Addl. Commissioner of Income Tax will honor the numerous decisions of CIC and Honorable High court as stated above while making decision on this appeal so that at least the wastage of time for honorable CIT / CIC could be avoided in second appeal while discussing the same matter.

 Sub: Tax Evasion Petition against Shri. XYZ S/o Shri ABC
 
 Dear Sir/ Madam,

This is a tax evasion complaint against Shri XYZ S/o Late Shri ABC whose details are:
 Residence Address: ____________ Office / Business address __________
 
 Background

Smt. 498ª WIFE D/o Shri. XYZ has framed a false dowry complaint under section 498a/323/504/506 of IPC and under section ¾ Dowry prohibition act .It has been claimed by Smt 498 A WIFE in her own admission that Shri XYZ & Smt XYZ WIFE had spent over Rs __ lacs in the marriage on MAY, 2004 (in financial year 2004-2005)
 
 Interestingly Shri XYZ & Smt XYZ WIFE married her second daughter even if we assume that same amount of money was spend in her marriage as alleged in the FIR. It needs to be verified how come Shri XYZ amassed such an astonishing wealth for both these marriages.
 
 Shri XYZ & Smt XYZ WIFE also married his second daughter where it is presumed that he must have spent an equivalent amount in her wedding. It means he spend more than 30 Lacks Rupees. It becomes my duty as a patriot and citizen of India to ask the authorities to verify the source of income and tax returns filed by Shri XYZ.
 
 It is submitted that Shri XYZ was a __________ employee and was worked with ______________, where from he bought such huge sum of money for said dowry and has carried other liabilities of family besides having other liabilities is a matter of investigation which your esteemed department has the jurisdiction to investigate.
 
 Please investigate as to whether Shri XYZ, Smt XYZ WIFE (housewife though) has ever shown such a huge amount as his / her income and paid taxes on the same (this income does not include only amount allegedly spend on dowry items but also amount spend on other liabilities of his family and invested / spend on the properties owned by him) and if they had purchased the items of dowry from shops / showrooms after paying proper taxes for their purchase.
 
 Ground for complaint
 As Shri XYZ (as claimed) had spent Rs ___ lacs in financial Year 2004-2005 so his income tax return and source of fund of Rs ___ lacs may be verified and tax should be collected as per provision of Income Tax.

 Further careful perusal of the FIR & Attached Complain letter of Smt 498 A WIFE hints provision of section 68,69,69A, 69B, 69C & 69D under Income Tax Act of 1961 are applicable on Shri XYZ as far as in my knowledge. However there may be many other provisions of income tax which is best known to Honorable Income tax authority.
 
 The section 68 deals with cash credits proving identity of the creditor, capacity of the creditor, genuineness of the transaction are the important things of this section. Section 69 & 69A, B deals with unexplained investment, unexplained money & investment not fully disclosed in books of accounts.
 
 Section 69C deals with the unexplained expenditure, the important requirement of this section is that an expenditure has been found to have been incurred by an assessee in any financial year and the assesses fails to indicate satisfactory source of such expenditure.
 
 Request & Relief sought
 Shri XYZ income and source of fund should be verified for expenditure of Rs ¬¬___ lacs in financial year 2004-2005 to recover the tax and start proceedings against Shri XYZ as per provision of Income Tax and the authority is under bounden duty to investigate the said information since it relates and its refusal may prejudice the appellant upon which an FIR has been registered.
 
 Since criminal jurisprudence, it is clear that innocent person should not be convicted and a person is presumed innocent unless found guilty/convicted.
 
 Honorable Justice S. N. Dhingra has also given voice to my feelings in his Judgment of “Neera Singh Vs. The State (State Govt. of NCT of Delhi) & Others – CRL.M.C.7262/ 2006 – 23.02.2007 as below

“Now-a-days, exorbitant claims are made about the amount spent on marriage and other ceremonies and on dowry and gifts. In some cases claim is made of spending crores of rupees on dowry without disclosing the source of income and how funds flowed. I consider time has come that courts should insist upon disclosing source of such funds and verification of income from tax returns”
 
It is therefore requested that necessary Investigations may kindly be made against Sh. XYZ, Smt. XYZ WIFE and Smt 498A WIFE the interest of justice and requirements’ of law.
 
 Shri XYZ provides the details of money being spend as gift received from the relatives, friends etc, the flow of money should also be verified as there is every apprehension that he may provide false Information and cheat the Tax Authorities.

 As per Income tax rules, the source of Shri XYZ income must be checked and recovery should be made from him against the expenditures he has made in the marriages of his daughters. I may be given the due prize money as per income tax guidelines for revealing this to the authorities.

 I would also like to request that the name of investigating officer be provided to me who

 will be looking at this matter, as there is every apprehension that the information provided to me will be misleading due to political pressure and beauraucratic contacts of Shri XYZ,Smt XYZ WIFE.
 
 I request you to kindly take cognizance of my complaint and honor the aforesaid Judgment to verify his expenditure and initiate action against Shri. XYZ, Smt XYZ WIFE for tax evasion if any.
 
 With Regards,

Husband

DP3 FIR Format

Reference No:
 Through Registered / Speed Post
 Dated :
 To,
 The Senior Superintendent of Police,
 
 Subject:- Request for registration of FIR against Ms.(Wife Name), Mr (FIL Name),Mrs (MIL Name) Mr (BIL Name) & Ms(SIL Name) & other R/o –(There Residence Address) U/s 3of D.P.Act.
 
 Sir,

 I YOUR NAME S/o Your Father’s Name R/o (Your Address) have been falsely implicated by my wife Ms. (Wife Name) in coalition S.H.O of P.S. (Where FIR had registered).

 SHO on false complaint of my wife have has registered the FIR No.______ dated ________, and booked me and my family members (Father, Mother & Married Sister and other if any) u/s 498A,323,504,506 of IPC and 3/4 of DP Act.
 
 In FIR No._____ dated _________ at P.S (Where FIR had registered), My wife & her parents claims to have given huge dowry in the marriage worth Rs.______Lacks (XYZ LACKS) which is prohibited under Section 3 of Dowry Prohibition Act.

 Ms.(Wife Name), Mr (FIL Name),Mrs (MIL Name) Mr (BIL Name) & Ms(SIL Name), belong to respectable family and are highly educated people. And they are very much aware of the fact that if taking dowry is crime and giving dowry is too a crime. By giving huge sum of alleged dowry of Rs._______lacks ( XYZ Lacks) they have knowingly committed the crime.
 
 Giving or taking dowry is an cognizable offence and punishable up to 5 Year.

 I request to you to direct SHO (Where FIR had registered) to lodge the FIR against Ms.(Wife Name), Mr (FIL Name),Mrs (MIL Name) Mr (BIL Name) & Ms(SIL Name)

 Giving dowry under Sec 3 of DP Act is cognizable offence and it is mandatory for SHO (Where FIR had registered) to take cognizance of such crime which happened in his jurisdiction.
 
 Along with the complaint I am submitting the rulings High Court of India which make him mandatory to book Ms.(Wife Name), Mr (FIL Name),Mrs (MIL Name) Mr (BIL Name) & Ms(SIL Name) under section 3 of DP Act, it being cognizable offence.

 Further Learned SSP, go through these rulings and understand them very well and direct SHO(Where FIR had registered) to take action against my wife and in-laws & other relatives to register FIR for congnizable offence like “Giving Dowry” under Section 3 of DP Act.
 
 The judgments and rulings wich is provided are as under, which make you mandatory to direct SHO(Where FIR had registered) to register FIR for cognizable offence like “Giving Dowry” under Section 3 of DP Act.
 
 Hon’ble High Court of Delhi via CRL.M.C 7262-2006 23.02.2007 which talks about registering the FIR against educated people who gave the dowry, in spite knowing the fact that giving dowry is crime and Learned SHO should not entertain any complaint, if the Rule 2 of the Dowry Prohibition( Maintenance of List of Presents to the Bride and Bridegroom) Rules, 1985 is not complied with.

 Despite all the ruling and judgments Learned SHO in coalition with my Wife and in-laws registered false FIR against me and my parents without investigating and demanding the required prove of source of income, Flow of money, income tax return, bills of expenses of Rs ________lacks(XYZ Lacks) , and mandatory Maintenance List (stridhan List).

 I would request you to kindly look into my grievance and direct to SHO(Where FIR had registered) to register the FIR against Ms.(Wife Name), Mr (FIL Name),Mrs (MIL Name) Mr (BIL Name) & Ms(SIL Name) for giving the dowry u/s 3 of DP Act and no abiding to Rule 2 of DP Rule, 1985.

 I have full faith on the Ld. Senior Superintendent of Police of Police that I will be given justice by initiating a strict action against all the law misusers named above by registering a case and saving the precious time and burden of judiciary for preventing undersigned to request the court to initiate action in case of failure.

 Thanking you,

 With Best Regards,
