Now, bride and kin in dock for dowry

7 Jun 2009, 0130 hrs IST, Smriti Singh, TNN

NEW DELHI: In the first such order in the capital, a trial court has asked the police to register an FIR against six members of a family, including the bride, for giving dowry to the groom’s family.

There was trouble between Sunil and Latika (both names changed) just a year after they got married on January 31, 2004. Latika left for her maternal home on August 4, 2005 and filed a dowry harassment case against Sunil and his family with ACP, anti-dowry cell. She alleged that her family spent more than Rs 10 lakh on the marriage, and gave Rs 2 lakh in cash for a car and another Rs 1.15 lakh as dowry. A case was registered against Sunil and his family under Section 498(A), 406 and 34 of the IPC.

But Sunil also went to court, seeking registration of an FIR against the girl and her family for fulfilling his dowry demands.

Citing the dowry prohibition Act which has a provision for punishment for giving dowry, Sunil moved court in August 2008, seeking action against his wife and in-laws under Section 156(3) CrPC as the police was refusing to register the FIR against the girl’s family for giving dowry.

In the petition filed through his counsel Pradeep Nawani, he asked that an FIR be registered against the girl and her family under Section 3 of Dowry Prohibition Act, which is punishable upto five years in jail with fine not less than Rs 15,000 or the amount of the value of such dowry, whichever is more.

Counsel Nawani also relied on a high court judgment which stated that the police should simultaneously register an FIR against the girl and her family for giving dowry.

Metropolitan Magistrate Neeraj Gaur observed that giving dowry was a cognisable offence and directed the station house officer (SHO) of Model Town police station to register an FIR.

The court also asked the SHO to set an investigation into motion against Latika and five other members of her family.

    This time, Jarak bowed from the waist, his long white ponytail spilling over one shoulder. But the best fighting they could manage were savage couplings to slake the sexual need. It may mean nothing to you, but I must say that Im proud of you. Nialdlye shook her head. Someones strong arms surrounded her, and a broad chest met her cheek. That spell shouldnt have been so hard. I dont think theres any hurry to start. Gala teased, tossing a floor pillow at him. First Gala, then Radin crowded close, surrounding her with warmth. Thank you for all youve done for me. They wanted her to bleed? Dont expect me to like it, and dont expect me to let you tease me! He grinned when she licked her lips. What they had this moment was less, but also so much more. She rolled her hips so his shaft rubbed her opening. She shivered at the feel of liquid warmth oozing out of her. She could have enslaved the raedjour. He sat in the chair, watching her. I fell in love with you when I was only a shadow in the darkness. I cant see where Im going.

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.
