My Sister has given Death Threats to kill my whole family on my wife's whatsapp on 30 march 2021.
My wife filed a complaint with proofs to delhi police station to take action.
delhi police registered FIR under sections of non congnizable offence against my sister and given a copy to us on 24/04/2021
the investigation officer took our simple statement that we have received death threats and told us to write nothing else about the background or previous verbal threats or criminal habits of my sister and separately took my sisters statement which the investigation officer didnt revealed whats written in my sisters statement.
the investigation officer told us that he will forward the case to SDM and then he will take further action.
yesterday i received a showcause notice from SDM on the basis of report submitted by I.O to S.H.O dated 24/04/2021 as that my wife is threating my sister with dire consequences due to a property dispute and there are enough grounds as per SDM to order us to give surety of 5000 to maintain peace.
how does we become the culprits ??????
me & my wife has not spoken to my sister for more than six months or may be more, we neither pick their calls as it is not our nature to argue or give threats. my sister and her husband usually calls between 1am to 3am at night after getting drunk to have illogical arguments and they use abusive language so we think its better to not pick their calls. we have always told them 6 months back in a very polite way that if you are not satisfied with the solution then you are free to go to court and whatever be the decision of court we will abide the law.
then how does we become culprits in the complaint filed by us of death threats and all the proofs are submitted and verified by police ????
now what, whats the legal advice ?
