after the guidelines issued by the Supreme Court you will not be implocated in false criminal dowry cases. however she can harass you as per trends of society. you can take help from the court regarding any forthcoming harassment.

Respected sir, you should not worry because now police only lodge case against husband and parents and in most cases declare parents innocent even this fact that complainant mentioned the name of them in complaint and especially relative are not connected to this dowry cases beacuse they will have no benefits if dowry is given to accused/husband or not so and apart from this now even before lodging FIR against husband one Enquiry conducts and so you can not be connnected to this case and as per the law down by the hon'ble Supreme Court of Indian in 2010(4) Criminal Court cases page 053(SC) where FIR against sister and brother were quashed by saying that FIR was lodged against then just to humiliate them.
