Judgments On NRI Cases By The Courts In India

I thank Ms Girija Vyas for this document. I extracted this information from the MOIA document she sponsored in a misdirected zeal to paint all NRIs men with marital issues as crooks, liars and cheats.

I thought, I’d perform a public service by sparing the public from the vitriol and the smug faces of netas, contained in this otherwise excellent document, by extracting and presenting the excellent parts.

Here is the document: Judgments On NRI Cases By The Courts In India(pdf)

Calcutta HC: No Alimony For Leaving Hubbies On Flimsy Grounds

Here is the judgment. It is a large file (1.4Mb): No Alimony For Leaving Hubbies On Flimsy Grounds


Kolkata: Here is one for the harassed husbands’ club. If a woman leaves her husband’s home on “flimsy grounds”, she is not entitled to maintenance, the Calcutta High Court has ruled.
On Thursday, the HC set aside a lower court’s order and asked a Baranagar youth to stop paying his estranged wife a monthly allowance, after judging that she had left her husband’s home “on flimsy grounds”. The landmark judgment is one of those rare cases where the husband gets reprieve in a case under the stringent section 498A, which is meant to prevent harassment of women but is sometimes exploited by the fair sex for unfair ends. The ruling came as a relief for Baranagar’s Partha Pratim Banik who was locked in a bruising battle with his estranged wife, Arundhati. Their marriage had not been a happy one and they had frequent quarrels. According to sources, Arundhati left Partha’s home suddenly one morning, taking along their fouryear-old son, and filed a case against her husband and inlaws under section 498A for “physical and mental torture”. Later, she claimed in court that Partha had cheated her by claiming he was a computer engineer whereas he was a “computer mechanic”.
A Barrackpore court granted her plea and directed Partha to pay her a monthly maintenance of Rs 1,700 — Rs 1,000 for the boy and Rs 700 for Arundhati. Partha appealed against th e order in high court. The case came up for its final hearing on Thursday. Partha’s counsel Koushik Dey said that the allegations against Partha were false and that Arundhati had left her home voluntarily without any concrete reason. He cited section 4 of 125 CrPC, which states that a wife who refuses to stay with her husband without sufficient reason is not entitled to a maintenance allowance. Dey also claimed that Partha was willing to take Arundhati back home, but she had refused.


The Indian Domestic Violence Act: Behind The Scenes

Looks like there was a lot of action behind the scenes. Here are some pdfs that explain what I mean:

This happened on March 15th 2002.

Here is the link to the pdf: COMMENTS BY MR. ARUN JAITLEY, Union Minister For Law And Justice, in defence of the GOI Domestic Violence Bill Given to women’s groups on March 15, 2002

Here is a comment by Indira Jaising:

“There should be a policy underlying every legislation. The only possible objective of a law on domestic violence can only be to Stop Violence. Whereas the policy of the GOI Draft seems to be to preserve the family and the marriage, and the same is already achieved by all the marriage laws and civil laws. The only “unoccupied field” is protecting a woman from domestic violence and this present draft does not achieve that.”

Stats On Persons Arrested Under The IPC Cases

These are stats from the NCRB (National Crime Records Bureau).

I stumbled upon them due to an act of god.

Stats on Persons Arrested Nationwide Under IPC Cases.

The report states that there is an increase in the number of people arrested under dowry harassment cases.

Here is an excerpt:

“The crime head-wise and sex-wise break-up of persons arrested for IPC crimes during 2005 are presented in Table-12.2. The female criminality in the total IPC crimes accounted to 5.8 percent only (same as previous year), however, the percentage share of female arrestees was higher for those crimes which are perpetrated on women such as Cruelty by Husband and Relatives (22.5%) followed by Dowry Deaths (22.4%) and Kidnapping & Abduction of Women & Girls (7.1%).”

Implications In A False Case

This is a case from 1999.

This is an issue of rape where the accuser recanted.

In our country, a person accused of rape has more rights than a mother or sister or any other member of the family of a male falsely accused in a 498A case.

SC Judgment Defining Rape

Here is the recent judgment by the SC on rape.

An excerpt :

What constitutes an outrage to female modesty is nowhere defined in IPC. The essence of a woman’s modesty is her sex. The culpable intention of the accused is the crux of the matter. The reaction of the woman is very relevant, but its absence is not always decisive. Modesty in this Section is an attribute associated with female human beings as a class. It is a virtue which attaches to a female owing to her sex. The act of pulling a woman, removing her saree, coupled with a request for sexual intercourse, is such as would be an outrage to the modesty of a woman; and knowledge, that modesty is likely to be outraged, is sufficient to constitute the offence without any deliberate intention having such outrage alone for its object. As indicated above, the word ‘modesty’ is not defined in IPC.”

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.
