What Does An FIR Form Look Like?

I found this at the NCRB site. The forms are possibly translated into regional languages. This is a 21 page document, so be patient while it loads.

Here is the english version of an FIR from the NCRB site


SC Grants Maintenance While Not Judging On DNA Test


Here is a case from 2002 where the SC granted maintenance, but did not rule on the DNA test of the child.

Here is the judgment:  Maintenance No DNA Test


AP HC Orders A DNA Test 2006


Here is an instance where the HC orders a DNA test to establish paternity.

The courts prefer to use a DNA test sparingly, but in this case the AP HC allowed it.

Here is the Judgment:  AP HC Orders A DNA Test 2006


SC Judgment On Maintenance – Legally Married Wife


here is a case where the court defines the meaning of marriage under the Hindu Marriage Act. This was a case about maintenance and the court declined it.

Here is the judgment:Wife Refers Only To Legally Married Wife


SC Judgments On Paternity Test


There are increasing cases of Indian women sleeping around and foisting the results on their clueless hubbies. Here are some judgments that will help in settling the issue of paternity. The SC initially took a conservative view on paternity tests, but in 2003, it finally agrees to allowing DNA tests as part of the evidence. The first case concerns the issue of inheritance.

Here are the judgments:


SC: Stray Acts Do Not Constitute Mental Cruelty (1999)


I came across this judgment. I really wish that divorce, as painful as it is, should be granted, if the grounds are reasonable. In this day and age, how does one live with a person who is unreasonable, be it male or female ?

In this judgment, divorce is not granted. However, the interesting thing about this judgement is that the SC says that one of the functions of the Womens Protection Cell is to mediate and attempt to bring about a reconciliation. For those of you, who are being hounded by the WPC, this judgment may be  useful in getting them back in line.

Here is the judgment:  Stray Acts Do Not Constitute Mental Cruelty

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.
