Delhi HC: Justice JD Kapoor “Make 498A Bailable”

Folks,

Finally found the judgment by Justice JD Kapoor from 2003. He describes the predicament of families facing a 498A accurately.

Here is the link to the news article.

Here is a link to the news article where the desi Taliban were trotted out to protest this judgment, that reflects reality so well.

Here is an excerpt of this judgment:

“Once a complaint is lodged under Sections 498A/406 IPC whether there are vague, unspecific or exaggerate allegations or there is no evidence of any physical or mental harm or injury inflicted upon woman that is likely to cause grave injury or danger to life, limb or health, it comes as an easy tool in the hands of Police and agencies like Crime Agains Women Cell to hound them with the threat of arrest making them run here and there and force them to hide at their friends or relatives houses till they get anticipatory bail as the offence has been made cognizable and non-bailable. Thousands of such c mplaints and cases are pending and are being lodged day in and day out.”

Here is the judgment: Justice JD Kapoor “Make 498A Bailable”

    I totally agree that the 498a should become bailable. infact to clean this system first of all the investgation officer need to validate the complaint. now a days there are 99.99% complaints are filled which are baseless and with sole objective of extracting money from the husband and his family buy threatening of getting arrested. there are complaints where the wife and her parents accept that they have given lacs and crores of rupees to husband and his family. whey don’t the complaint validated first. moreover, if he has given then whether he has given with his own wish as gift or by force.

    in this racket, girl, the corrupted police officials, lawyers, corrupt judges and their juniors, so called netas join together and start harrasing the husband and his family. they can go to any extend as they know that the sections of 498a, 406, 125, child custody ….. are all for girls. who cares about the rulings / guidlines / instructions passed from time to time. if someone dare to object in from of judge / magistrate then he has to face “CONTEMPT OF COURT”.

    one the one side the husband is going through the tourture of false alligation, on the other side no one is dare to support him and the last but not least if he is doing job. the company will throw him out.

    but who is listening……. I am living in free, democratic, India where everyone has power to speak.

    sare jahan sey achaa hindustan hamara. here the crooks join / live together and eat simple and inocent man.

Some Interesting Stats On Arrests Of Women

In 1930, the British govt arrested 17,000 women for their involvement in the Dandi Yatra (Salt March). During 1937 to 1947 (10 Years), they arrested 5,000 women involved in the freedom struggle. From 2004 to 2006, the govt of India arrested 90,000 women of all ages under 498A. On the average, 27,000 women per year are being arrested under this flawed law. These are stats from the NCRB.

The family of the writer was tortured by the Indian Police in an attempt to extort over a $100,000 by holding them in custody for over a week. The police, in cahoots with the magistrate and the PP, did this due to the ridiculous allegations made in a 498A case by his embittered ex-wife. She filed the case years after he and his family had last seen her. Thousands of 498A cases are filed each year in India by women seeking to wreak vengeance on their husbands and in-laws. Enormous sums are extorted from intimidated families implicated in these cases by corrupt Indian police officers and elements of the Indian judiciary. The author and his family haven't bribed any public official nor have they given in to the extortion. This blog aims to raise awareness of due process in India.
