    Finally the cat is coming out of the bag; remember 498a is also used against other women in the husband’s house. The question on how fair it is — hmmm make it bailable and lets c what happens to the corrupt lawyers, caw cells, ncw and the like. BTW, if you analyze who’s suffering in the end..its the poor miserable bitches who misuse 498a; money cant but everything LOL !!!

    IPC 498A is a way by which Indian government is trying to legalize prostitution.

    Why should any other relative other than the spouse suffer.Both of you made your personal life public.
    Why is that only the literate girls are manuplating this law.
    This 498a is the tool with crook girls to harass and black mail worthy in laws

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.
