Dear Sir,

The heavy misuse of 498A IPC by estranged wives in case of matrimonial dispute is increasing day by day. This fact is acknowledged by various High Courts and Honorable Supreme Court. In almost every session of parliament, honorable members of the parliaments are asking questions to the Government regarding heavy misuse of Dowry Laws and measures taken by Government to curb its misuse. Every other day newspapers carry news articles about heavy misuse of Dowry related laws and protest done by husbands and his family members who have to undergo humiliation, harassment and torture due to these “Women Centric” laws. There are also scores of news articles where the husbands and his family members have committed suicide as they were unable to cope up the pressure of false criminal cases.

Our police who are trained to deal with criminals are insensitive and incapable to deal with a complaint of the matrimonial dispute. Our NGO receives large number of cases of harassed husbands who have to go through the agony and harassment in the police stations which are acting as “settlement centers” to extract huge amount of money from husbands to settle the dispute which are of matrimonial in nature. Use of physical force and abusive language against husbands and his family members inside the police stations is norm of the day.

Honorable Justice Regupathi of the Chennai High Court issued the following observation in M.P. No.1/2008 in Criminal Original Petition No.10896/2008 filed by Tr.Romaiah. In compliance of the observation made in the above said order, DGP-Tamil Nadu has issued a Circular Memorandum for the State Police of Tamil Nadu. The said order of the Honorable Justice Regupathi alongwith the Circular Memorandum of DGP-Tamil Nadu is attached herewith as Annexure.

We, National Family Harmony Society®, request your office to issue a similar Circular for the Bangalore Police. If such a circular is issued and implemented in true spirit then it will go a long way to curb the heavy misuse of the 498A IPC.

We are available at any time of your convenience to have discussion with you on this subject matter.

498A IPC being used as an extortion and blackmail tool DGP

Dear Sir,

This is with regard to the article published in “Bangalore Mirror” dated 20-July-2010 and also available at the website of the said newspaper. A copy of the said article is attached herewith as an Annexure.

http://bangaloremirror.com/article/10/20100720201007200523421056440d345/Inspector-goes-soft-on-woman-despite-husband%E2%80%99s-suicide-note.html#ftr2

This has become a routine and every week newspapers are having news article about 498A IPC being misused by wives as an extortion and blackmail tool to settle score with husband and his relatives.

Hundreds of husbands who are harassed and tortured by their wives approach our NGO to seek help. In a survey conducted by our NGO we found that 498A IPC is being increasingly misused as an extortion and blackmail tool. In order to hide their mistakes women file false criminal cases against husbands and all his family members. Such Husbands who are already harassed by their wives are further tortured by the police who are not trained enough to deal with matrimonial disputes.

Since the 498A IPC is non bailable, hence on a mere complaint by the such wives the tendency of the police is to immediately arrest all those named in the FIR and send them to Judicial Custody. It is a bitter truth that Law treats MEN and WOMEN differently and most of the laws made with regard to the Matrimonial disputes are heavily in favor of WOMEN. No wonder they are being heavily misused by WOMEN.

Taking acknowledgement of the heavy misuse of 498A IPC “Union Ministry of Home Affairs” issued an Advisory dated 20-October-2009 vide No: 3/5/2008-Judl Cell to all the State Governments and UT’s. But the heavy misuse of 498A IPC is continuing unabated as the police officers are not following such Advisories or earlier circulars issued by the Office of DGP, Karnataka and COP, Bangalore.

In view of the above facts, we submit following list of proposals and demands for your kind consideration. We are available at any time of your convenience to have discussion with you on this subject matter.

 

OUR DEMANDS

 

  • Stop or minimize the involvement of police in “Matrimonial Disputes”.
  • Training for the police officers to be sensitive and careful in case of a complaint received under 498A IPC due to large scale misuse of the said section.
  • No arrest before Final Judgment/Order in case of a complaint under 498A, 304B, Dowry Prohibition Act and related laws.

Rise of “Women Criminals” – MEMO to Governor-DGP

15th July 2010

Bangalore

To,

The Director General of Police,
Government of Karnataka, State police H.Q,
O/o D.G.P. no.2, Nrupathunga road, Bangalore, Karnataka

Subject: Despite rise of “Women Criminals” Police is still arresting innocent husbands falsely accused under “Section 498A of IPC”.

Dear Sir,

This is with regard to the article published in “The Times of India” dated 14-July-2010 and also available at the website of the said newspaper.

http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/city/bangalore/Murder-jigsaw-solved-justice-done/articleshow/6165050.cms

Similarly there was an article published in “Deccan Herald” dated 4-Nov-2009 and also available at the website of the said newspaper.

http://www.deccanherald.com/content/34320/triple-murder-kingpin-arrested.html

This has become a routine and every week newspapers are having news article about adultery and Extra Martial Affairs relationship by wives.

Hundreds of husbands who are harassed and tortured by their wives approach our NGO to seek help. In a survey conducted by our NGO we found that adultery and extra martial relation by wives who are caught by husbands is one of the major reasons for breaking of the marriage. In order to hide their mistakes such women file criminal cases against husbands and all their family members. Such Husbands who are already harassed by their wives are further tortured by the police who are not trained enough to deal with matrimonial disputes.

Since the 498A IPC is non bailable, hence on a mere complaint by the such wives the tendency of the police is to immediately arrest all those named in the FIR and send them to Judicial Custody. Normally the police officer justify such arrests saying 498A IPC is non bailable and since it is a women related matter they have little choice, little realizing that on such a false complaint two more women i.e. mother and sister of the husbands are also arrested. If the police officer starts justifying the above stand then it will lead to chaos in the orderly civil society wherein any wife who is caught in “Extra Martial affair” or Adultery will more and more start using 498A IPC for “Arrest on Demand” against husband and his family on whom they have grudges with an intention to take revenge and it will lead to collapse of orderly civil society.

I would take this opportunity to bring to your kind attention and notice the judgment of the Honorable Supreme Court of India reported in “1994 AIR 1349 1994 SCC (4) 260 JT 1994 (3) 423 1994 SCALE (2)662” dated “25/04/1994” by Honorable Former Chief Justice VENKATACHALLIAH, M.N.

“No arrest can be made because it is lawful for the police officer to do so. The existence of the power to arrest is one thing. The justification for the exercise of it is quite another. The police officer must be able to justify the arrest apart from his power to do so. Arrest and detention in police lock-up of a person can cause incalculable harm to the reputation and self esteem of a person. No arrest can be made in a routine manner on a mere allegation of commission of an offence made against a person. It would be prudent for a police officer in the interest of protection of the constitutional rights of a citizen and perhaps in his own interest that no arrest should be made without a reasonable satisfaction reached after some investigation as to the genuineness and bona fides of a complaint and a reasonable belief both as to the person’s complicity and even so as to the need to effect arrest. Denying a person of his liberty is a serious matter. The recommendations of the Police Commission merely reflect the constitutional concomitants of the fundamental right to personal liberty and freedom. A person is not liable to arrest merely on the suspicion of complicity in an offence. There must be some reasonable justification in the opinion of the officer effecting the arrest that such arrest is necessary and justified.”

In view of the above facts, we submit following list of proposals and demands for your kind consideration. We are available at any time to have discussion with you on this subject matter.

 

OUR DEMANDS:

 

  • No arrest before Final Judgment/Order in case of a complaint under 498A, 304B, Dowry Prohibition Act and related laws.
  • Punishment for those filing false cases under 498A, 304B, Dowry Prohibition Act and related laws.
  • Issue circular to stop arbitrary arrest of elderly persons, children and pregnant sisters on a complaint under 498A IPC.
  • Involve NGOs working in the similar field.
  • Don’t allow wife to use 498A IPC as “Arrest on Demand”.
  • Stop the involvement of police in “Matrimonial Disputes”.
  • Instruct police to follow earlier circulars issued by COP-Bangalore, Your office and the recent Advisory issued by Union Ministry of Home Affairs dated 20-October-2009 vide no 3/5/2008-Judl Cell regarding “Misuse of section 498A of IPC”.
