(2.) Learned counsel for the applicants submitted that applicant no. 1 Amanpreet Kaur was married to Harpreet Singh on 08.01.2007 as per Sikh rites and rituals. A son, who is now aged 51/2 years, was born out of said wedlock. The son is applicant no. 2 in this petition. After the marriage, the in-laws of applicant no. 1 put pressure on her and demanded dowry worth Rs. 20 lakhs and a Santro car. When the applicant no. 1 informed her parents about the demand made by her inlaws, then the parents of applicant no. 1 gave a sum of Rs. 3,00,000/- to her in-laws. In the intervening night of 01.03.2010 and 02.03.2010, the husband alongwith his family members assaulted and ousted applicant no. 1 from her matrimonial house. Applicant no. 1 rushed to her parents and told them the entire story. Thereafter, the parents of applicant no. 1 approached the family members of the husband and tried for reconciliation, but to no avail. An FIR at police station Bazpur against the husband and his family members was lodged under Sections 498A, 323 of IPC and under Section of Dowry Prohibition Act. The said criminal case is pending before the Judicial Magistrate, Kashipur.
(3.) On 18.08.2010, the applicant no. 1 filed case no. 188 of 2010 under Section 125 of Cr.P.C. before the Judge, Family Court, Camp Kashipur, District Udham Singh Nagar for maintenance, in which the applicant demanded Rs. 15,000/- for the livelihood of herself and her son.
