498A IPC .. Quash- specific overt act against all accused mandatory

The section 498A of Indian penal code is one of the most exploited provision. Since the matrimonial harassment includes mental harassment also, the border line for accusation cannot be earmarked. There are decisions aplenty in this  section.

Recently, Madhya Pradesh high court recently held that Merely on the basis of bald allegations made against the relatives of the husband without there being any specific overt act on their part  is not enough to send them to trial.
