Appeal to frame Guildlines for 498A arrest

HYDERABAD: Justice PV Sanjay Kumar of the AP High Court on Tuesday referred to a division bench a writ petition seeking directions to the state and central governments to frame guidelines for investigation of cases under the Dowry Prohibition Act and Section 498 A of the IPC.

The judge was dealing with a petition filed by G Srinivas, a software engineer, who complained that his wife, Sree Lakshmi, had lodged a false complaint with the Miyapur police misusing the above provisions. Acting on the complaint, the police had unjustly arrested him and a former advisor to the chief minister, G Bhasker Rao. The petitioner submitted that in view of the growing abuse of the said law, the authorities and the Law Commission be directed to lay down guidelines for investigating officers in such cases

  1. Thank you, Sunita.

    I refer article/post on DNA/HT 21JUL10. My (Advocate) Mother in Law has a similar case (NOT AGAINST ME, of course) ;o) :oP

    My comment in support of your JUST cause:

    It is NOT A FACT that ONLY WOMEN (who fight for EQUALITY) are subjected to abuse by men and should be given EVERY PREFENTIAL TREATMENT indisputably. This is WRONG ASSUMPTION and sets BAD PRECEDENTS which themselves (PRECEDENTS) invite abuse by unscrupulous women. MEN are also subjected to unmeritorious abuse by WOMEN!!

    Blessed be!!
