The Supreme Court is Wrong. Section 7 of the Dowry Prohibition Act does not grant immunity to the accused, it grants immunity to the complainant. In this case where the woman is accused is not entitled to the relief that the Supreme Court has granted to her. Justice Dhingra was right in his observation. Supreme Court needs to be more responsible in delivering verdicts rather than going by emotions.
Hence, in this case the immunity must have been granted to the husband and his family. DP Act clearly says both Dowry Giving and Taking are crime. When the woman is admitting her crime, pardoning the same with a wrong and gender-biased interpretation is nothing but a sheer display of lack of knowledge of law on part of the Supreme Court. Its time the judiciary gets trained in law.
