This research scrutinizes the misuse of legal provisions by women in cases involving crimes against their partners/husbands, focusing on Section 498-A of the Indian Penal Code, sexual harassment allegations, and the Domestic Violence Act. Through analysis of recent cases such as "Rajan vs. The State of Madhya Pradesh," "Mukesh Bansal vs State of UP," and "Vikram Ruhal vs Delhi Police," the complexities surrounding allegations of cruelty, sexual harassment, and domestic violence are examined. The study reveals the challenges in navigating instances of false accusations and their profound ramifications on the accused, including legal, emotional, and societal consequences. By delving into judicial responses and guidelines, the research underscores the importance of a balanced legal approach to safeguard the rights of both genuine victims and the accused.
