After marriage was called off, the girl's family has filed a police complaint and is intimidating us
I decided to call off my marriage 2 months before it was scheduled due to compatibility issues with the girl. We were yet to be engaged. However, the girl's family gave me Rs 5k when the confirmed the marriage and my parents reciprocated by giving Rs 3k and a gold earring to the girl. The marriage preparations were in final stage though like cards were printed and venues were booked at both end. I had personal financial losses. The girl's father with more people came to our house. Scared, my father called police and also send a complain via sms to police incharge. Now the girl's family is intimidating us by saying that they would take us to court. Is there any ground that they can file a case against us.
There was no exchange to money, neither was any demands from us. We have heard from some sources that they are claiming to have lost Rs 8 lakhs due to this alliance, but we never asked for a single penny. Neither we asked to make any elaborate arrangements. Also, i had a recording where the girl was 1st to say that she wanted to call off the marriage as she could not think of leading my life with her.
Now the girls family have lodged a complaint in Siliguri police station and the ASI of that police station has been calling me. My father spoke to the ASI, but he is not ready to tell what the complain is and i asking us to come down to siliguri. What should i do ?

I did not unilaterally called off the marriage. It was the girl who said she is calling off 1st and i have the telephonic conversation recorded. Do we have to still reimburse them as we also incurred huge losses. Can we file a case against them for criminal intimidation and mental harassment ?
