What is the procedure for dowry case?

Respected Sir/Ma'am There has been a dowry demand from us for my sister's marriage. They are asking for 14 lakhs cash after engagement. We have spent almost 10 lakhs in engagement. We are having some recordings against them but it is not exactly clear. Sir What should we do next?

You should go to your nearest police station and file an FIR, stating that you have received the demand for dowry, as demanding dowry is an illegal act, ther must be a registered police complaint for the same, to proceed further in trial court, and as far as evidence is concerned that is not an issue once the case have been registered by a police officer.
