DV Complaint Dismissed: Protection Officer Hauled Up By Local Court

Here is the link from the Tribune: Domestic violence complaint dismissed

An excerpt: “Dismissing a complaint of domestic violence by a woman against herhusband, metropolitan magistrate Neerja Bhatia expressed anguish overan attempt to overreach an order of the Delhi High Court byconcealing certain facts and took to task the officer for notperforming her duty with diligence.

The report of the protection officer is astonishingly lacking andmisleading to the extent that it does not reveal the status of thecomplainant to be that of a lunatic, the magistrate said in a recentorder.”

    Dear All,

    Please see the advertisement on 28th saturday Nov 2010 in Deccan Chronicle. Government of India has initiated action against IPC498 after it received so many complaints on legal terrorism.

    Subject: “Petition Praying for amendments in Section 498A of IPC”

    So please act very quickly to place the post to the Government.

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.
