[New Delhi] For Poor, Registration of FIR Impossible: Delhi HC
A bench of Acting Chief Justice Gita Mittal and Justice C Hari Shankar expressed anguish when it found that no FIR was lodged by the police despite a woman’s complaint that her daughter has been missing from her in-laws’ house since June 2016.
The bench took note of the letter written to it by the woman explaining the ordeal suffered by her daughter before she went missing after she was harassed by her in-laws.
In her letter, the woman has also alleged that her daughter was beaten up for bringing less dowry.
The bench asked the DCP of the area, where the woman had lodged a complaint, to place before it the action taken in this regard.
It directed the police to ensure that the missing woman and her husband are present before the court on the next date of hearing on January 29.
