Dowry Harassment Case Tess Hazari Court Verdict Everyone in the House Cannot Be Accused

But in the past few years there has been a flood of abuse of this law. The highest courts of the same country from time to time stated in their decisions that after the marriage, not only every member of the party-in-law, but also other relatives was involved in false cases of dowry molestation in frivolous disputes. He was finally acquitted due to insufficient evidence but was subjected to psychological and physical torture.
