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.
