Legal Shorts; SC: Refusing to return Stridhan is Criminal Breach of Trust.

So far as the jewellery and clothes, blouses, nighties and gowns are concerned they could be used only by the wife and were her stridhan. By no stretch of imagination could it be said that the ornaments and sarees and other articles mentioned above could also be used by the husband. If therefore, despite demands these articles were refused to be returned to the wife by the husband and his parents, it amounted to an offence of criminal breach of trust.

Case:
Pratibha Rani  Vs. Suraj Kumar.

AIR 1985 SC 628
