Delhi HC Settles Issue Of Jurisdiction In A Bail Application

This is a bail order by Justice Pradeep Nandrajog of the Delhi High Court. In the 2nd paragragh, he clearly explains the issue of jurisdiction settled in the Ajith Abraham case by the SC.

This bail order is a good example to use by those who are having to fight a 498A in a different city than their own. In some cases, the 498A FIR will have statements claiming that harassment and cruelty took place in another location than the place of residence of the hubby and in-laws in order to establish jurisdiction in an area/location favorable to the 498A wife and/or to harass the family of the hubby by making them travel for 5-6 hours to rural areas for court appearances.

Here is the Ajith Abraham jurisdiction judgment by the Supreme Court:

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.
