Hon’ble High Court of Bombay has held that, it is not every harassment or every type of cruelty that would attract Section 498-A.
From Para 3,
Sarla Prabhakar Waghmare Vs State Of Maharashtra And Others on 10 April, 1989
After going through her evidence it does not appear that she has conclusively established that the beating and harassment was with a view to force her to commit suicide or to fulfil the illegal demands of the non-applicants. The trial Court has discussed this aspect at some length and has recorded a finding that offence under Section 498-A, Indian Penal Code, is not established. I do not see any reason to interfere with the same in my revisional jurisdiction at the instance of the complainant, particularly when the State has not challenged the impugned order.
