Fed up facing dowry harassment and domestic violence cases from their wives,
husbands are now filing cases of dowry giving on their wives and in-laws. As
per them, since both dowry giving and dowry taking are equal crimes as per
law and their wives have admitted on their own accord that they gave dowry
to their husbands, suitable legal action should be initiated against the
wives as well.

As per Save Family Foundation, it all started in Lucknow with a husband
there filing a case of dowry giving against his wife. Thereafter the trend
caught up with Delhi where, till date, close to 16 husbands have registered
such cases. In some cases, suitable legal action has also been taken. Then
in Bengaluru and Chennai, some husbands got these cases registered. Now this
trend has reached Odisha. This is first time in Odisha. Mithun Kumar, Tarun
Kumar Dass and Arun Dash have registered complaints against their wives and
in-laws in Bhubhaneshwar. They have alleged dowry giving which is a criminal
offense.
