DGP blows whistle on dowry cases
TIMES NEWS NETWORK
Bangalore: DGP Ajai Kumar Singh has issued a circular to all police stations to be cautious while dealing with dowry harassment cases.
   The police chief said: “Based on the study of complaints of 498, 498a IPC and Dowry Prohibition Act, some cases registered against the husband and… relatives are found making false allegations.” The circular stated that as per Supreme Court orders, police have the power to arrest the accused under CrPC 41. But they have to collect ample proof as evidence before making the arrests.
   It stressed on the necessity to protect rights of the innocent. Hence, “the investigation report should be reviewed by the corresponding superintendent of police/ deputy commissioner of police”, and with their permission arrest the accused.
