AP Ends Immediates Arrests on Receiving 498A Complaints

The arrest of any person in a cognizable case which doesn’t involve violent crimes, such as Section 498A, is illegal per Indian law. Due to beliefs propagated by the police, lawyers, and abetted by moronic magistrates, hundreds of thousands, across India, have been arrested under Section 498A. Fortunately, changes have been introduced in the penal code through the CrPC amendments which have ended this practice.

Some police depts have also taken steps to end the practice of arresting people on the the filing of a 498A complaint. Here’s a copy of one such circular sent by the office of the DGP of AP to most districts in the state of Andhra Pradesh:

    did u record the event in mobile? if then u can approach the PCA i dnt know if its there in maharastra. Also, file a proper RTI and ask the reasons on which the IO was motivated to arrest u?? use it as a mean to collect data as under proper guidelines police cannot arrest u on a complaint so ask them the complete report in ur RTI then use it to sue him..do not be afraid ever. All d best!

    The Latin language is still popular nowadays despite the
    fact this can be considered being a dead language already;
    its significance remains to be recognized in different fields,
    however as a result of limited resources and
    support from any speakers, native you aren’t, learning this language
    is challenging and difficult. practices were defined after
    which tested by November of 1937. The graphics with this game are
    incredibly similar to that relating to Dead Rising 2.

    Considering the vast Android user base, analyzing the trends and behavior of consumers using a wide range of devices becomes
    a challenging task. Apple’s i – OS and Android were tied for ‘most
    desired’ operating system. However, believe it or not, free applications are actually a much more profitable alternative.

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.
