Aussie woman alleges dowry abuse

Posted by 498A_Crusader on November 25, 2007

HYDERABAD: An Australian woman, who married a person from the city a few years ago, lodged a complaint with the police on Saturday against her husband and mother-in-law alleging dowry harassment.

The family, however, refuted the charges and claimed they had returned most of the money taken from the Australian woman.

Vanasthalipuram police said Mario Franklin Campbell, 32, went to Australia to pursue his education in 2002. During his stay in Sydney, he fell in love with an Australian woman Samantha Jani Sevel, 30, and they got married.

Campbell, however, returned to the city alone a few years ago. Samantha, who arrived in the city 10 days back, lodged a police complaint on Saturday alleging that her husband and mother-in-law Shaila Desai were harassing her physically and mentally. She had given them 50,000 Australian dollars, she claimed.

Samantha also alleged that her husband was trying to get married again. Police reportedly took Campbell into custody and are investigating.

Campbell’s mother, Desai, is a retired gazetted officer. Police registered a case under Sec 498 (A) dowry harassment and are investigating.

Verify Income Tax Of Dowry Givers And Prosecute Them As Dowry Givers

Posted by 498A_Crusader on November 23, 2007

IN THE HIGH COURT OF DELHI AT NEW DELHI
Reserved on: 12.02.2007
Date of Decision: February 23, 2007
CRL.M.C.7262/ 2006
23.02.2007
Smt. Neera Singh….. Petitioner
Through:Mr. L.B. Rai and Mr. V.K. Singh,
Advocates
Versus
THE STATE (GOVT. OF NCT OF DELHI) and ORS…..Respondents
Through: Mr. Vikas Arora, Advocate for respondent
Ms. Richa Kapoor with Ms. Sukriti Bhardwaj, Advocates for State.
CORAM:
JUSTICE SHIV NARAYAN DHINGRA

1. This petition under Section 482 of Cr.P.C. has been made on behalf of petitioner for quashing/setting aside the order dated 20th July, 2006 passed by learned Additional Sessions Judge, Delhi whereby the learned ASJ upheld the order of the Trial Court discharging appellants Bishan Pal Singh, Smt. Santosh Devi, Gajendar Singh and Toshan Singh. Bishan Pal Singh is the father-in-law of the complainant, Smt. Santosh Devi is the mother-in-law of complainant and Gajender Singh and Toshan Singh are the brothers-in- law (husband’s brothers) of the complainant. The complainant made allegations involving almost every member of the family of her in laws. Learned Metropolitan Magistrate, after going through the evidence observed as under:
Perusal of record shows that the allegations of the complainant are against the accused person except the accused husband with respect of taunting for bringing insufficient dowry. But there is not a single allegation that the accused persons made any subsequent demand for dowry and consequent harassment for not meeting with their demands. Admittedly the complainant and her husband and in laws of the complainant were staying at Ghaziabad. Whereas the complainant most of the time resided with her husband at Riwari. It was held in AIR 1996(Supreme Court) 67 that taunting for not bringing sufficient dowry is distinct from demand of dowry and should not be confused with. Though taunting for bringing insufficient dowry is also an uncivilized act but does not come within the purview of Section 498A, sufficient to constitute the offence i.e. the cruelty to the complainant with respect to not fulfillment of demand of of dowry. There is not a single allegation that except for the
alleged taunting the complainant was ever harassed with respect to further demand of dowry. Hence the prima facie case under Section 498A is not made out against accused Bishan Pal, Santosh Devi, Gazender Singh and Kaushan Singh.
2. Against this order, the petitioner preferred a revision petition before the Court of Sessions and the learned Sessions Judge after considering the entire material observed as under ? In the present case, husband, Yashwant Singh, after marriage was residing separately from his parent and brothers. He was residing at Rewari, Haryana. The Ld. Trial Court found that allegation of the complainant are against the husband only. There were no specific allegations against the accused persons, namely, Bishan Pal Singh, Smt. Santosh Devi, Gajender Singh and Toshan Singh. The Ld. Trial Court was of the opinion that there was not even a single allegation that the accused persons made any subsequent demand of dowry and harassed the complainant for not fulfilling their demand. The complainant most of the time was residing with her husband at Rewari, Haryana. There might have been one or two instances of taunting for not bringing sufficient dowry but they are not sufficient enough to
attract Section 498A. There are not specific allegations with respect to entrustment of dowry items to the accused persons. Since, the complainant stayed with her husband at Rewari, Haryana, the entrustment of dowry articles can be presumed to be to the husband. There were no specific allegations of entrustment to the accused person, namely, Bishan Pal Singh, Smt. Santosh Devi, Gajender Singh and Toshan Singh.?
3. A perusal of the complaint would show that as per allegations dowry demand was made even before marriage i.e. at the time of engagement and an AC was demanded from her father by her in-laws and her father had assured that AC would be given at the time of marriage. However, she told her father “You have given car and AC at the demand of in laws, what will happen if they demand a flat tomorrow?”. Despite her this conversation with her father and despite her knowing that dowry demand had already been made, she married in the same family irrespective of the fact that she was well-educated lady and was an engineer and her brother was in police. In fact, these kinds of allegations made after breakdown of the marriage show the mentality of the complainant. I consider where these kinds of allegations are made, the police should simultaneously register a case under Dowry Prohibition Act (in short, the Act) against the parents of the complainant as well, who married their daughter
despite demand of dowry. Section 3 of the Act prohibits giving and taking of dowry. If a woman of grown up age and well educated gets married to a person despite dowry demand, she and her family becomes accomplice in the crime under Dowry Prohibition Act.
4. Now-a-days, exorbitant claims are made about the amount spent on marriage and other ceremonies and on dowry and gifts. In some cases claim is made of spending crores of rupees on dowry without disclosing the source of income and how funds flowed. I consider time has come that courts should insist upon disclosing source of such funds and verification of income from tax returns and police should insist upon the compliance of the Rules under Dowry Prohibition Act and should not entertain any complaint, if the rules have not been complied with. Rule 2 of the Dowry Prohibition (Maintenance of List of Presents to the Bride and Bridegroom) Rules, 1985 reads as under: ? 2. RULES IN ACCORDANCE WITH WHICH LISTS OF PRESENTS ARE TO BE MAINTAINED.- (1) The list of presents which are given at the time of the marriage to the bride shall be maintained by the bride. (2)The list of presents which are given at the time of the marriage to the bridegroom shall be maintained by the bridegroom.
(3)Every list of presents referred to in Sub-rule(1) or Sub-rule(2)- (a) shall be prepared at the time of the marriage or as soon as possible after the marriage; (b) shall be in writing; (c) shall contain:- (i) a brief description of each present; (ii) the approximate value of the present; (iii) the name of the person who has given the present; and (iv) where the person giving the present is related to the bride or bridegroom, a description of such relationship. (d) shall be signed by both the bride and the bridegroom.
5. The Metropolitan Magistrates should take cognizance of the offence under the Act in respect of the offence of giving dowry whenever allegations are made that dowry was given as a consideration of marriage, after demand. Courts should also insist upon compliance with the rules framed under the Act and if rules are not complied with, an adverse inference should be drawn. If huge cash amounts are alleged to be given at the time of marriage which are not accounted anywhere, such cash transactions should be brought to the notice of the Income Tax Department by the Court so that source of income is verified and the person is brought to law. It is only because the Courts are not insisting upon compliance with the relevant provisions of law while entertaining such complaints and action is taken merely on the statement of the complainant, without any verification that a large number of false complaints are pouring in.
6. I consider that the kinds of vague allegations as made in the complaint by the petitioner against every member of the family of husband cannot be accepted by any court at their face value and the allegations have to be scrutinized carefully by the Court before framing charge. A perusal of the complaint of the petitioner would show that she made all kinds of allegations against her husband regarding beating, that her husband was having illicit relationship with 35 girls; he forced her to write suicide note, abused her, taunted her, threatened and told her that he was getting another bride of more richer family while she was in Rewari with her husband and she made telephone call to her parents who came to Rewari and took her to parental home. She had also given phone to one of her friends Jigyasa. A perusal of the statement of Jigyasa would show that she told Jigyasa that it was her husband who was torturing her and behaving with cruelty. However, in her complaint, she
made vague and omnibus allegations against every other family members. The statement made by her and other witnesses have been scrutinized by me, except vague allegations and allegations of taunting, there are no allegations of perpetuating cruelty on her by any of the four respondents in order to compel her to bring more dowry or any particular items.
In view of my foregoing discussion, I find no reason to disagree with the order of two Courts below. The petition is hereby dismissed being devoid of merits.

Indian laws are tools of Blackmail.

Mom filed complaint in India; Feared husband would take children
Chicago Sun-Times,  Aug 19, 2007  by Stefano Esposito

Several months before she went to Naperville police to complain that her husband was abusing her, Nimisha Tiwari told authorities in her native India that her spouse was trying to take her children from her.

Friends of the woman who set fire to herself and her two young children Aug. 11 told the Sun-Times last week that Tiwari — in recent months — feared greatly that her troubled marriage might end with her losing custody of her kids, Vardaan, 4, and Ananya, 18 months.

The friends paint a very different picture of a woman her husband has said suffered in recent months from deteriorating mental problems that affected her decision making and made him fear she might harm the couple’s children.

‘Dictatorial behavior’

Last year, Tiwari and her children were staying near the Indian city of Mumbai, visiting family and attending her brother’s wedding, friends say. Her husband, Anand Tiwari, later joined the family in India.

While in India, Nimisha Tiwari filed a complaint with police in Trombay, a suburb of Mumbai, according to documents supplied to the Sun-Times.

“Because of the dictatorial behavior of my husband and constant instigation from my in-laws, he may take away my . . . children to U.S.A. and leave me in India,” Tiwari wrote in a letter to Indian police dated Dec. 4, 2006. “I say that there is also apprehension that my husband may take the passport and travel documents of mine and my children forcibly.”

In the same report, Tiwari writes of her husband: “He is under the influence of his parents. He has not allowed me to contact my parents in Mumbai, either through telephone or Internet, and also kept restrictions on me like not meeting my friends and neighbors in U.S.A. . . . Once, he has abused me by twisting my arm. . . . He has warned me that I should not tell anybody about the abuse, especially not to my parents.”

It is unclear how Indian authorities handled the complaint. Friends of the couple told the Sun-Times last week that they knew about the complaint when it was filed.

Nimisha’s father issues statement

Those friends, who asked not to be identified, said that soon after the filing, things seemed to improve between Nimisha and Anand Tiwari, and they hoped the couple would resolve their differences.

On Friday, Nimisha’s father, Chandrahas Awasthi, issued a written statement, saying: “We are feeling terrible that we could not intervene timely enough to prevent this tragedy. The course of events presented many signs of deep trouble in her married life. The authorities are looking into the details. We will wait for the investigation to complete and will continue to fully cooperate with authorities. We request anyone knowing Nimisha to voluntarily share with the investigators anything they believe may have contributed towards her decision.”

Still no motive released

Last May, when Nimisha Tiwari sought an emergency protection order against her husband in DuPage County, Anand Tiwari claimed his wife’s mental condition was deteriorating as a result of multiple sclerosis. Anand Tiwari told a judge he feared his wife might harm the couple’s children. The husband claimed his wife had been acting impulsively, including locking Vardaan in a dark room. A judge later vacated Nimisha Tiwari’s court order. Several of the couple’s Naperville neighbors have described Anand Tiwari as a friendly, hardworking family man.

On Aug. 11, Nimisha Tiwari bought a can of gasoline, and set herself on fire inside the couple’s Naperville home. Authorities say she also set both children on fire. Investigators have not offered a motive in the case.

Woman seeks NRI husband’s deportation from USA

Posted by 498A_Crusader on November 23, 2007

 // Its a old story; still in this women own words, there was no dowry demand mentioned; but she filled dowry case on him; it shows, how biased indian legal system is.

she says, she still hope, he will come back to her, but she demand to sieze his passport and deport him from USA, child treatment is a just a eyewash.

A woman deserted by her Non Resident Indian husband has appealed to Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu to help secure the deportation of her husband from the United States so as to save the life of her ailing baby girl.

Narrating her plight to rediff.com, Sanyogita Reddy, who runs a software firm in Hyderabad, said she has sought immediate deportation of her husband to India since her daughter Shreya Reddy, who is suffering from congenital cerebral palsy and leukaemia, needs a bone marrow transplant from him.

Sanyogita Reddy said as her blood group does not match the baby’s, the bone marrow has to come from her husband. The transplant needs to be done within the next two months.

“I have made a plea to the chief minister, asking him to get my husband deported from the United States before August 15, 2003. My child definitely needs her father and so, on humanitarian grounds, I request everybody on earth to help me in this regard,” she said.

A computers engineer, Sanyogita Reddy is the promoter of a Hyderabad-based software company. The 26-year-old Sanyogita married Damidi Narayan Reddy, a 37-year-old NRI based at Milpitas in California.

The marriage took place on June 19, 2002. “I was not aware of his two previous weddings at that time.  He married me for reasons best known to him but probably it was for money. I have spent more than Rs 6 million on him so far.”

She believed her husband’s claim that he was the owner of a chain of Indian restaurants in California, but came to know only belatedly that he was only a manager in a restaurant in the US.

“When he said that his business was not doing well and wanted my help, I gave him all my savings, which I earned through my clients for various software projects in Europe and Africa,” she explained.

Sanyogita said that when her husband came to know that she had become penniless, he took the flight and went off to the US in November 2002, despite being aware of the fact that she was pregnant and she needed medical attention.

She was admitted twice in a corporate hospital in January and February 2003. A baby girl was born to her, two and a half months premature, on February 8, 2003.

“My child was born premature because her heartbeat was nil. After looking at my child, I gathered some courage and decided to live life all by myself but I could not understand why my husband left me. I always thought that he would come back to me,” she said.

When she called up her husband’s place in the US in May, she came to know that he was on a vacation to India. “I went to his house in the city and confronted him but he refused to accept me or the baby. He put the baby on the road in the scorching sun and he was not moved a bit by my tears and the child’s cries. Later, when I thought that he would leave India any moment, I finally approached the police with a complaint and asked them to seize his passport,” she pointed out.

On the basis of my complaint lodged at Women’s Police Station at Begumpet on May 20, 2003, the police booked a case against him under section 498 of Indian Penal Code for dowry harassment. The police merely noted his passport particulars but did not seize the document,” she added. 

Sanyogita Reddy said she also took an appointment with the officials at the US Consulate General at Chennai on June 14 but she came to know that her husband had gone to the US on June 11 itself. 

“This means that he definitely had some contacts, who helped him in fleeing the country even as the police issued a lookout notice to the Immigration and Customs authorities, asking them to arrest my husband whenever he passes through the airports,” she claimed.

“Finally, when the doctors said my daughter needed a bone marrow transplant to survive, I approached some women’s organisations in the US and they have pledged their support to me. I have also appealed to the Andhra Pradesh government to secure my husband’s deportation back to India. I am waiting for the response,” she said.

Sanyogita Reddy said that Narayan Reddy approached her in 2002 to help him out with a software package for connecting the chain of restaurants supposedly run by him through remote administration. It was then that Sanyogita Reddy decided to marry him despite fierce opposition from her parents.

She later came to know that Narayan Reddy, who was living in the US since April 1988, had married and divorced two other women. First, he had married an Indian lady in 1992 and divorced her in 1996 and later he married an American citizen to get his green card and divorced her too.

He got the green card in 2001 and visited India six times in the last 15 years, including three trips made since 2002.

Sanyogita alleged that her husband has threatened her of dire consequences. “Time and again, I keep getting messages over my cell phone threatening my life, my daughter’s life and even my pet dog’s life,” she claimed.

Mother held for daughter’s murder

Posted by 498A_Crusader on November 23, 2007

// Renuka ChodRE; in india, women / mother is entitled to kill her children ? and police is waiting, someone to lodge complaint….? why ?

Innocent children life is so cheap in INDIA or those 200 Crore Child welfare grant goes to your swiss bank account or for your condom factory…? 

PUNE: The police have detained a woman suspected of having killed her 10-month-old daughter at Swapnanagari society, Manikbaug, Sinhagad road, sometime during the last five days. The woman, who relatives said was mentally disturbed, continued to live in the flat even after the murder.

The body of the girl, which was found wrapped in a plastic bag and kept under the bed, was recovered from the flat in the woman’s presence on Thursday. Neighbours had complained to the Haveli police about a stench coming out of the flat.

Inspector Satish Patil of the Haveli police station told TOI that only the woman, Kalpana Pawar (36), and her daughter, Ankita, lived in the flat. Her husband, Ramesh, lived in another flat at Dhayari with the couple’s two older children – a daughter and a son. The couple had parted ways following some differences.

The autopsy revealed that the baby had died of blunt injuries inflicted on her head and chest. Patil said that the police would register a murder case against Kalpana if her husband or anyone else lodged a complaint.

Abortions among teens rising

Posted by 498A_Crusader on November 23, 2007

//I think Renuka ChodRE forget to tell these girls not to have multiple men; she is only selling her condoms to married women only. Because she support pre marital as well as extra marital Affairs of women.

PUNE: The number of teenagers and young unmarried women going for abortions has risen sharply in Pune, sparking concern among gynaecologists over unsafe and unprotected sex.

What is more scary is that unprotected sex can often expose the girl to HIV infection, other sexually-transmitted diseases, and complications later, members of the Pune chapter of Obstetric and Gynaecological Society (OGS) have said.

Dr Sunita Tandulwadkar, clinical secretary of the society, and an IVF expert, said, “At least six young unwed pregnant women enquire about abortion at my clinic every week. Till about a couple of years ago, the number of such women was just one or two a month.”

Most of these girls and women are educated and are either students or working women, she added.

While the members of the society said it was difficult to count the actual number of teen abortions in the city, they agreed that the number has risen sharply.

Gynaecologist Vaijayanti Patwardhan, past president of the Pune branch of Indian Medical Association (IMA), said the exact number of abortions involving young, unmarried girls could not be arrived at as the ratio of approved medical termination of pregnancy (MTP) centres in Pune to that of illegal ones is 1:4.

She said that the government needs to crack down on the illegal centres.

“Most registered practitioners can tell you how many girls come to them for an abortion, but it is beyond imagination to count those who go to quacks,” a senior member of the association said. Gynaecologist Smita Jog, president-elect of OGS, said the abortion rate could be even higher than 100% as some pregnant girls report to quacks or often pop abortion pills, which are easily available over the counter, without realising the consequences.

“There are instances where the use of such pills has been rampant and haphazard,” she said, admitting that cases of pregnancy involving young educated girls in the age group of 17-20 years were on the rise.

Another gynaecologist, who didn’t want to be identified, said he had a case recently where an 18-year-old came to his clinic twice in four months and she was pregnant on both the occasions.

“She walked in casually, without any fear or regret,” he said.

Jog and Tandulwadkar said young boys and girls were increasingly indulging in unprotected sex and rising live-in relationships among young couples was among the factors contributing to this.

The society has initiated a programme called ‘Let’s Talk’, targeting the young population in the city to sensitise them on the risks associated with unsafe and unprotected sex.

Man sets himself ablaze, wife hurt

Posted by 498A_Crusader on November 23, 2007

 Man set fire himself becuase of wifes threats and harassment and died; but police registered case as accidental death;

If a women set fire herself when husband find her extra marital affair; Police will Register case as dowry Death and arrest husbands all relatives and servent if they at home. THATS OUR GREAT INDIAN

MUMBAI: A 28-year-old alcoholic died after he set himself ablaze following a dispute with his wife. As the wife tried to extinguish the fire, the man held on to her, leaving her with 30% burn injuries. She has been admitted to Bhagwati Hospital.

The incident occurred at Sai Shraddha slum colony in Rathodi village in Malwani, Malad (W), where the couple -Naushad Azmi and Shakuntala -lived. Shakuntala, who was 12 years elder to her husband, worked as a domestic help.

Call to end discrimination against men

Posted by 498A_Crusader on November 22, 2007

While ‘women’s empowerment’ is becoming an attractive political catchphrase, a group of organisations today mustered the audacity to claim that males in India are also being discriminated against in various spheres, including employment.

‘Save Family Organisation’(SFO), an NGO, and its sibling organisations, while giving a call to observe November 19 as ‘International Men’s Day’, quoted a report of the Labour and Employment Ministry to assert that during the years 2001-05, men employed in the public and private sectors lost 14,000 jobs while women gained 1,00,000 jobs during the same period. ”While an increasing number of men are losing employment, more women are entering the job market and defying their traditional roles within the family and society,” it said in a statement. In addition, men are being subjected to severe discrimination under law and their basic human rights are being violated everyday in the name of more and more legal provisions that claim to empower and protect women, it alleged.

The statement may sound ironical when viewed against the backdrop of the statement made by a Punjab minister yersterday that women can be bought at a price less than that of a buffalo.

While discrimination against women has been an obnoxious social reality of both the traditional India and the India on the upswing, ‘Save Family Organisation’ alleged that thousands of men are becoming victims of ”legal terrorism” unleashed by the misuse of certain sections of the Indian Penal Code, the Protection of Women against Domestic Violence Act, adultery laws and divorce, maintenance and child custody laws. ”To make things worse, male members of a family, regardless of their age, health or marital status, are arrested based on unsubstantiated allegations of dowry harassment and domestic abuse, and are subjected to long-drawn trials,” SFO activist Wasif Ali said. He claimed while men perform some of the most risky and challenging jobs in society and contributing 82 per cent of the government’s tax revenue, ”not a single rupee has been allocated in the name of men’s welfare in the country’s budget in the last 60 years”. While claiming that the growing disregard and hatred against men in Indian society is forcing many Indian men to end their lives, it quoted the statistics of the National Crime Bureau to contend that the number of suicides by males in every age group outweighed the number of those by females.

In the year 2005 alone, the NGO said nearly twice as many married men (52,483), comparted to married women (28,186) committed suicides, unable to withstand verbal, emotional, economic and physical abuse and legal harassment.

The SFO also demanded that the government should establish a ”Ministry of Men’s Welfare’ to cater to men’s needs in the changing society and end the ‘legal terrorism’ perpetrated through the misuse of ‘anti-male, anti-family laws.’ Further, civil and criminal laws should be gender-neutral and Article 51A (e) of the Constitution be amended to read ”…to renounce practices derogatory to the dignity of women” (and also men, as opposed to just women).

Another demand of the organisation is that custody of a child should be given jointly to both spouses upon dissolution of marriage and make provisions to punish those who abuse the judicial process, irrespective of gender.

Sister and Her 6 Month Baby jailed in Brothers Dowry case

Posted by 498A_Crusader on November 22, 2007

I feel like I am trapped in a Double Jeopardy from last 4 years and can not seems to find a way out.
I am a North Indian but studied in an engineering college in Maharashtra small town and then have mostly worked in hyderabad and bangalore.

My husband was my classmate and hails from different community than me. I got married seven years back in 2000.

seven and four years of marriage, so you can say that i have not been to my birth place for longer than 2 months a year ( from 1996 till date).

My parents and his parents had reservation with marriage but it got settled after seeing us happy. we both lived alone, his parents visited often but my parents and one younger brother never came because of distance and their business.

My brother married in 2003, as i was pregnant, i could not even go to marriage. infact as i was not very favorite of brother because of marrying a different community person, my husband, my brother never discussed his marriage or choice of girl.

my brother left for usa 2 months after marriage for his job. his wife stayed back for visa as usa job posting was sudden and big jump in salary. i visited my parents place and lived with my parents and brothers wife for a week.

my parents were thrilled to see me and lovely son, one month old so they devoted time to me. i was very co ordial with new bride but somehow, she felt jealous as everyone in the house was so thrilled to see me come home after 2 years or so and with a lovely baby, that was in 2002.

my brothers wife left for usa one week of living with me in july 2002 and i came back to bangalore in august 2002.

Suddenly in february 2003, police came to our house in bangalore and told me and my husband to pack bags as we both were getting arrested under dowry act and we both have troubled my brother wife for dowry.

my six month son was with me and i had just joined office. i tried to call my parents but came to know that they both have already been arrested with my maasi and my cousin sister and her husband, who used to live 5 houses away from us.

in hurry, i could not even pack my bags and we were kept in jail with my son from friday to monday morning. my son got cold coming from south india to north india winter. we told police that i havent even met my brother wife for more than a week and my husband has not even met her, he just attended marriage for 4 hours and then came back.

when we got bail, our case in court continues from last four years.
my brother and his wife had some fight over some issues while they were in usa and his wife filed dowry harassment 498a case against all of us to extort money from my brother.

first i fought with my brother why he put my family through such dastardly law where innocents are arrested without proof or absurd allegation. but now i see his situation and i feel pity for him. he says he never asked for dowry of 70,000 rupees as he was earning 200,000 or more per month.
but police and court take ages to solve this case.

cases are still on and we have to visit every one month, it has been four years.

and now my mother is very sick but she is portrayed as villain by my brother ex wife and my father is very sick from fighting court cases.

my brother cannot leave india and even me and my husband are barred from leaving india without court permission though we keep on getting good offers from usa.

now these court cases and frustation of innocence is causing problem and fights between us. we make up soon but every time, there is court date, house gets tensed up and some time my mother in laws appears cold to me and i feel so lonely.

i went to national commission for woman, they said we cannot do anything as i am a criminal in their eye.

HARASSED FATHER

Posted by 498A_Crusader on November 22, 2007

 His son committed suicide due to False Dowry Case (Sec. 498A) and allegations of Impotency

The harassed father Mr. Shee Ram Sharma [Mobile:9351340369] attended the Jaipur meeting on Oct 21, 2007 when his video interview was recorded. His young and innocent son, Manish Kumar committed suicide in April 2000 due to severe harassment and mental torture after his marriage with Sunita Sharma in Feb. 2000. Manish left his suicide note writing that his wife and Father- in-law had tortured and defamed him so much that he was ending his life.

The father and his son was defamed and humiliated by their society also due to false allegations of his son impotency which was made an issue by wife Sunita. After the husband Manish committed suicide, their case filed against wife u/s Section 306 was transferred to Women Cell for counseling and investigation. The father said that Lower Court Order acquitted the wife on the benefit of doubt but the dowry case was registered in 2005 against him and his second handicapped son Parikshit. He said that they were only jailed for one day u/s 306, but he and his handicapped son were jailed for 2 days on account of false dowry case. He said that they are demanding Rs. 2 Lacs to compromise their dowry case.

At last, he trusted that ‘Truth will remain truth, put me in jail or give death, I will face it (if I have done any crime).

Men want separate ministry for protection against abuse

Posted by 498A_Crusader on November 20, 2007

Marking the International Men’s Day, a group of men today urged the government to set up a separate ministry for their protection against abuse at home and work place.

The men, who celebrated the day for the first time under the aegis of ‘Save Family Foundation’ (SFF), submitted a memorandum to this effect to President Pratibha Patil, Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and UPA chairperson Sonia Gandhi.

“All laws meant for the protection of women in India are gender biased. It is high time that ministry for men’s welfare was set up in India,” Swaroop Sarkar, coordinator of the Foundation told PTI.

“As per data of the Crime Bureau of India over 72,000 men commit suicide every year. Suicide of married men is much higher than that of married women. Indian men have no legal protection,” he said.

The memorandum claimed that men contribute for 82 per cent of the total revenue to the government, but get nothing in return.

The Foundation rued that increasing number of men are losing jobs to the fairer sex.

“Nevertheless, the society is refusing to free man of his traditional duties of protecting and providing shelter for women, children and the aged,” it said.

International Men’s Day on Nov 19 to highlight plight of men

Posted by 498A_Crusader on November 20, 2007

Move over women, it is time for men to observe their day to highlight discrimination against them and project their contributions and achievements.

A voluntary organisation — Save Family Foundation — has decided to observe November 19 as International Men’s Day with a view to recognise the valuable contribution made by men.

The foundation also has some demands like establishing a Ministry for Men’s Welfare and protection for men against verbal, emotional, economic, physical and sexual abuse at home and at work place.

“While men still perform some of the most risky and challenging jobs in the society and while the government collects 82 per cent of its tax revenue from men, not a single rupee has been allocated for their welfare in the last 60 years,” the foundation said.

Interestingly, the foundation says that increasing number of men are losing employment and more and more women are entering the job market, defying their traditional role within the family and society.

“Nevertheless, the society is refusing to free men of their traditional duties of protecting and providing for women, children and the aged,” it said.

“In addition, men are being subjected to severe discrimination under law and their basic human rights are violated everyday in the name of more and more legal provisions that claim to empower and protect women,” it said.

Because of increasing disregard and hatred, men are preferring to end their lives, SFF said.

As per the suicide data of National Crime Control Bureau (NCCB), number of suicides by males in every age group outweighs the number of suicides by females in recent years. In 2005, 52,483 married men committed suicide as against 28,186 suicides by married women, it said.

Male refrain: a welfare ministry

Posted by 498A_Crusader on November 18, 2007

D-day is here. Tomorrow, the country’s ‘oppressed and abused’ men will celebrate International Men’s Day for the first time. Their top demand from the government: “set up a ministry for men’s welfare”.

“We will submit a memorandum urging the prime minister and Sonia Gandhi to set up such a ministry,” says Swarup Sarkar of the Save Family Foundation (SFF), which has declared November 19 as International Men’s Day along with organisations such as My Nation, Protect Indian Family and Asha-Kiran. International chapters of Save Family Foundation will make a similar request at the Indian embassies in the UK, the US, Australia and the Mid-East.

“The government gets 82 per cent of its taxes from men, but not a rupee has been allocated for men’s welfare in the budget in 60 years,” says SFF activist Neeraj Aggarwal.

The organisations have also been protesting against the misuse of dowry and domestic violence laws. “Men’s Day isn’t just about men,” says Prem Ahuja, wife of a men’s rights activist, and herself a men’s group member.  She adds, “Many senior citizens are being harassed, abused and blackmailed by their daughters-in-law in the name of dowry.” On Monday, men activists will visit such elderly ‘victims’ of the dowry law in Tihar Jail and distribute woollen clothes among them.

The event will also be marked in Bangalore, Hyderabad, Kolkata and Chennai. In Bangalore, the organisation plans to declare it a dry day.

5 yr old expose mother,in his father murder at Press conference

Posted by 498A_Crusader on November 17, 2007

Jalandhar, Nov 17: A five-year-old boy held a press conference here Friday to tell about his father’s murder and alleged that his mother was part of the conspiracy.

The boy, Gagandeep, was assisted during the press conference by his uncle Balbir Singh as he narrated the sequence of his father’s alleged murder in their house in Jhandi village in Hoshiarpur district Oct 25.

The boy’s father, Kuldeep Singh, had returned from Malaysia, where he was working, a couple of months back.

The boy alleged that his mother, Kamaljit Kaur, was part of the conspiracy to kill his father and two persons from their village had hanged him. He said that his mother stood witness to the entire crime.

Balbir Singh said the police, despite registering a case against the three accused, had failed to arrest the culprits.

The boy said that his mother, in his father’s absence, developed relations with another person, Bunty, in the same village. When his father returned from Malaysia, the activities of both got restricted.

Balbir Singh said that the police failed to arrest the culprits. He stressed that Kamaljit told the police that her husband had died of heart attack whereas the post-mortem examination report clearly indicated that he died of strangulation.

Police not bound to register an FIR says BOMBAY HC

Posted by 498A_Crusader on November 14, 2007

Mumbai: Police officers are not bound to register an First Information Report (FIR) every time a complaint is filed with them even if the alleged crime is a cognizable offence, the Bombay high court has ruled.
The judgment by a division bench of justice R.M. S Khandeparkar and justice Vijaya Kapse Tahilramani, comes close on the heels of a similar decision by another division bench earlier this year in May that the police was free to conduct a preliminary inquiry before registering the FIR.
The court held that in normal circumstances, an officer in charge of a police station would have to register an FIR as per the Criminal Procedure Code(CrPC) whenever a complaint of a cognizable nature is filed with it. But if the information was of “doubtful reliability” or required further probe, the police officer was free to conduct a preliminary inquiry, which the court said should be “expeditious” and “discreet”.
Under the laws, any offence that is punishable with an imprisonment of three years or more, like murder, rape, criminal breach of trust, dowry death are considered cognisable offences and non bailable. Any offence, that invites a lesser term of imprisonment, like criminal intimidation is a non cognizable offence.
“If merely on the basis of information of doubtful reliability i.e. an anonymous complaint cognizable offences are registered, that can lead to great injustice,” said the judges. “Where it is found necessary to conduct preliminary inquiry such inquiry should be done expeditiously and as far as possible it should be discreet”.
Taking the issue further, the judge also said that the high court should ordinarily not entertain writ petitions challenging the decision of a police officer to refuse to register an FIR. The petitioners in such cases should be asked to avail of alternative legal remedy of filing a private complaint before a magistrate.
“(Only) in gross cases of grave injustice, can such petitions be entertained by the high court,” said the judges, while dismissing a petition filed by Santa Cruz resident Kalpana Kutty, who runs a film production company K Film Kompanie. Kutty had filed a complaint with the Antop Hill police station against Mercurio Cinematography’ s, after the latter allegedly failed to clear dues with regard to a 60-second film made by her for promotion of the Asian Games 2006 held in Doha, Qatar.
Kutty’s lawyers said that the police refused to register an FIR, despite the fact that the complaint was of criminal breach of trust under Section 51 of the Copyright Act – a cognizable offence. The government’s counsel argued that in cases relating to criminal breach of trust and cheating, the police officer was required to verify whether there was enough material to substantiate the charge. The prosecutor also said that under the Bombay Police manual, the police officers were allowed to conduct a preliminary inquiry.

Man marries dog to ward off curse

Posted by 498A_Crusader on November 13, 2007

A33-year-old man in Sivaganga district of Tamil Nadu has married a dog in a bid to ward off the ‘‘curse’’ of a canine couple he had killed 15 years ago. Selva Kumar tied a ‘mangal sutra’ on the animal, petnamed Selvi, at a Ganesh temple in Manamadurai on Sunday. The 10-year-old saree-clad ‘‘bride’’ was brought to the temple in a grand procession. Kumar, who vowed to protect Selvi all through its life, said he married the animal as per the advice of an astrologer. According to Kumar, when he was 18-years-old, he had clubbed to death a dogcouple when they were mating and hung them on a tree. After the incident, he suffered a stroke and could not move his left arm and legs and also turned deaf. Kumar claimed an astrologer advised him that all his problems will be solved once he did the penance by marrying a bitch, Kumar said.

Abortion: Husband in dark, gets divorce

Posted by 498A_Crusader on November 13, 2007

New Delhi: Observing that a woman’s decision to undergo an abortion without her husband’s consent amounts to cruelty, a court has granted divorce to a man who alleged his ‘‘figure conscious’’ wife did not inform him before terminating her pregnancies.
The court admitted Kishan Chand’s divorce plea noting that his wife, Kanta Devi, had treated him with cruelty by not sharing her abortion plans with him, allegedly abusing him and her in-laws and filing harassment complaints against them.
‘‘The behaviour of the respondent (wife) coupled with other facts like getting abortions, taking away the petitioner’s money and jewellery and lodging criminal complaints amounts to cruelty,’’ said ADJ Atul Kumar Garg.
Passing a decree of divorce in favour of the petitioner, the court observed that the marriage between them had irretrievably broken down and it was very difficult to restore the conjugal tie in view of the behaviour of his wife.
In her defence, Devi claimed that charges levelled by her husband were concocted and she was willing to return to her matrimonial home despite living separately for over eight years.
The court, however, noted that Chand had proved his claims regarding her unilateral decision of abortions, frequent feuds over trivial matters and other instances of misconduct by her and ordered for dissolution of the marriage.
Multifarious criminal proceedings initiated by Devi against Chand and his parents further went on to corroborate the husband’s contentions, it said.

Alarming rise in suicides among the young

Posted by 498A_Crusader on November 12, 2007

New Delhi, Nov 12 (IANS) More and more young people are committing suicide in the Indian capital, and experts are blaming a variety of factors: from the fast-paced lifestyle to family and professional demands.

According to Delhi Police statistics, 784 people, including 449 males and 335 females, in the age group of 15-29 took their lives in the city in 2006.

This was a rise from the 651 suicides (370 males and 281 females) in 2005 and 625 (342 men and 283 women) the year before.

A Delhi Police spokesman said that suicide by hanging was the most favoured method to die.

In 2006, 295 young men and 199 young women hanged themselves, up from 233 males and 146 females the year before.

A few days ago, a young woman hanged herself from the ceiling fan of her residence in south Delhi’s R.K. Puram area, apparently over her poor performance in exams.

Sunita (name changed), 27, was pursuing masters in business administration. Police said she was depressed for a few days, and this might have forced her to take the extreme step.

Earlier, a 24-year-old woman engineer working in a call centre in Noida, in suburban New Delhi, committed suicide, after possibly suffering from depression.

Namrata, who lived in west Delhi’s Uttam Nagar area, was rushed to a hospital after she collapsed in the washroom of her Tech Mahindra’s Noida office. Police said her post-mortem revealed that she had consumed poisons pills.

“Her family had fixed her marriage with a Bangalore boy and Namrata apparently was not happy over this,” a police officer said. “She had said so to some of her colleagues.”

Explains Sameer Malhotra, a psychiatrist and psychotherapist with Fortis Hospital here: “The social support system for youngsters has gone down drastically with the proliferation of more nuclear families and live-in relations.

“They (youths mainly form middle-income class) are finding it difficult to keep pace with the fast-moving metro life and growing demands made on them. Youth have created an undue pressure upon themselves. To cope with stress, they are also dragging themselves to alcohol and drugs.

“The rise in such cases among youth is an indication that we are persistently failing in our efforts to provide them a reason for a meaningful existence”, Malhotra told IANS.

Some other common factors blamed for suicides include family problems, illness, love affairs gone sour, dowry disputes, poverty and unemployment.

“Suicide has become one of the most common causes of death among the young and adolescent population. It’s a devastating tragedy that affects family, society and the country at large,” social activist Swami Agnivesh told IANS.

“Success, wealth and consumerism are worshipped in today’s society. India’s economic success story too has resulted in escalating aspirations. Young people feel they can achieve anything and want instant gratification. When they don’t succeed, they get impatient and frustrated. They find failures harder to handle,” he said.

498a and DV Act, A Forced Justification

Posted by 498A_Crusader on November 11, 2007

On the completion of one year of DV ACT, one conventional, conservative and politically correct channel had invited a group of DV ACT supporters and handful victims of wife centric laws who turned activists. I saw the way the programmed was biased against the victims and there was no equality of opportunity for expression. And as far as knack of clever misinterpretation was considered the feminist again won with edge as the victims were incapable to match them up and victims would not have preferred to stoop that low.

While the logical questions of family activists are ruled out by the feminists and termed as insecurity, they are turning on an obvious blind eye and deaf ear to their cries. The politicians must be quite and happy that the nuisance values have reduced and every Arjun will have a Renuka morally supporting her. But what about the common man? Who cares, ok what about common woman, the enquiry starts here that if the women has any issue as a wife then law is over sensitive else again who cares.

Insecurity is obvious, because we felt that 498a was nice and can never be misused on innocents, till we realized how dangerous it is. And hence we are apprehensive about DV Act misuse. Please note this point as these laws are like semi insulated live wires with open ends.

If 2 paragraphs of 498a can cause so much of misinterpretation then what can 6 pages draft which is already declared as loosely drafted by the honorable Delhi High court and Supreme Court do. The review has been a white wash where only the figures are taken in to consideration but not the draft that is already in to controversy openly supported by greedy people. My question is what is the harm in making this act fool proof?

Nobody is listening to the plea of innocents about the genuineness of the complaints; DV Act supporters are just talking about the numbers. And that is where the scary figures come in to the picture. What happened next is not discussed. It was the same case till the RTI was enforced on the year 2005, 498a figures and the results were shocking that a majority of complaints were motivated. And only 2% arguably true.

DV Misuse is already reported, to which the feminist brigade is very insensitive, and further the justification is given that ‘women are being oppressed since years and hence this is ok’. Which, in other words mean that the Act will be allowed to be misused. That means the innocents would be punished. Who cares about them? Then for whom are we fighting? The misusers?

And further I and my family never committed those atrocities then why we can’t get protection? So then lets go and rule the British now and lets have a jhalianwala there too? Because they did it to us? but will we get General Dyer who did this or we should catch the innocent people and punish them because they are british. Then Hitler was right in killing the jews (Sad). What logic is this? And it is sad to see the sadist pleasure that the feminist derive by seeing the innocents suffering as a justification.

Further in case of the DV Act misuse by a wife the mother in law is poorly told by the feminist that the son can be equally bad and may be he too wants the place divided like the daughter in law. Why this possibility is be ruled out that the family of the girl’s side is having a plan to get a part of the house. Why not?

Demanding money is a crime but if the wife demands the money, house etc (SOWRY) it is understood as justified though the law does not speak that way.

If the wife has taken the unlawful possession (Kabza) of the house that is in the name of the mother in law, under DV Act, then she should be 498a-ed because the definition of 498a includes point “b) harassment of the woman where such harassment is with a view to coercing her or any person related to her to meet any unlawful demand for any property or valuable security or is on account of failure by her or any person related to her to meet such demand.” Think about this. Let us not be victims to Legal quacks.

If the desperate argument by feminist is that mother in law has never earned then how come the house is in her name then the same argument is valid for the scrupulous daughter in law who has just moved in some months ago and how come the property becomes her? And further how can one stay under the same roof with legal abuse, verbal, physical and economic abuse. It would be so inhuman for the husband or wife in any case. Why is no one talking about the duties of the wife? Why just so called empowerment and freedom?

The intention is very clear that again in the name of sita, the surpanakhas would encash. And justification would be “well centuries ago they were suffering and abblah blah blah….” Real reformists should be concerned of the misuse happening and should also talk about the repercussion (for the provision) for a proved misuse. Otherwise, this trend of perpetuating an innocent family to walk in to a one way ticket trap will never end. The wife in rat race of getting a better flat than her peer sister would construct a situation where separation would be the obvious solution and then would come the blind and omnipotent DV ACT supported by pseudo paper statictics.

The wife who is preoccupied with winning the next argument with her innocent in-laws may meet up with a goof up and an accident in the kitchen and would die of her carelessness. But would leave the section 498a and 304b for the family as a parting gift, leaving with one more misleading false dowry case that would add up in the statistics. Similarly when a husband who is traveling, driving with tensions of a bad wife may too meet up with a fatal accident, but the end result won’t result in a default case rather his property now would be in the name of his wife and the darogaji (Police) would say that it was an accident and would leave the impression that so many husbands post marriage die but nobody leaves the suicide note. And in case of suicides by husbands the family of husband though aware cannot charge the wife, which in reverse is possible in India. That a wife who does not leave a suicide note still has her relatives to harass the innocent husband.

It was also said that 498a was a police affair so now we have introduced a civil act so then first tell us that are we scrapping 498a? No!! Rather the sword will now hang along with DVAct. Because the draft covers 498a too.

Equality to me is when there is equal treatment in all the areas “Equal Rights as well as Sentence.”

It would be a forced justification if a loosely drafted law would harass innocents, call them criminals and reflect them in statistics. This needs to be corrected, else it is a white wash.

Protesting,

Jinesh Zaveri.

Woman thrashed by widowed daughter-in-law

Posted by 498A_Crusader on November 4, 2007

//This is called eMpower modern indian women;
we should ask, women and child welfare minister Renuka chodre for this; as she support all modern women;
they do not have respect for senior citizens;
Indian laws are totally biased against old parents and men;

As per indian law whatever modern women do is Right.

A 75-year-old woman was on Friday morning allegedly battered by her daughter-in-law and grand-daughter for objecting to the demolition of a wall at her apartment in Nirmal building, Santacruz. The woman owns the four-storey building on North Avenue Road but the property has now been divided among her, her four sons and a daughter. Though her children and their families live in the same building, her calls for help went unanswered.

Nirmal Kaur suffered severe head injuries after being assaulted by her daughter-in-law and 17-yr-old granddaughter
She later called up one of her sons and her daughter to inform them of what happened. Then she went to register a complaint at Santacruz police station where she was made to wait though blood was oozing from the injuries to her head. Fortunately, a relative passing by saw her and took her to a hospital. Eventually, a complaint was registered at 7 pm, around eight hours after the alleged assault.

FAMILY BACKGROUND

According to the police, Nirmal Kaur Randhir Singh Anand, 75, lives on the second floor of Nirmal Building on North Avenue Road, Santa Cruz (west). The ground-plus-three-storey building has seven flats and is in the name of Nirmal. After her husband’s death in 1981, her four sons and a daughter fought over the property. In 2005, the Bombay High Court passed an interim order giving an apartment each to Nirmal, her sons and daughter pending a final settlement.

One of her sons, Devinder Singh, died in 2001. His wife Inderpreet Kaur Devinder Singh Anand, 39, daughter Rashnin Kaur Devinder Singh Anand, 17, and Gurjot live in one of the apartments in the building.

WHAT HAPPENED

According to Nirmal’s complaint, around 10.15 am on Friday, she noticed three men trying to break a wall of her apartment. When she objected, they stopped the work and left.

Designer A D Singh spotted a bleeding Nirmal Kaur at the Santacruz police station. He took her to Cooper Hospital
However, within minutes, she alleged that her daughter-in-law Inderpreet Kaur Devinder Singh Anand, 39, and grand-daughter Rashnin Kaur Devinder Singh Anand, 17, came to her apartment and assaulted her with a stick.

Nirmal alleged, “They grabbed my hair and put me down on the floor. They then hit my face and head with a stick. I started bleeding and soon fell unconscious. When I came to my senses, I went to the police station to lodge a complaint and also called my daughter Paramjit.”

Paramjit said, “I rushed to the police station from my Andheri residence as soon as my mother called. We were very disturbed by whatever she told us.”

RELATIVE HELPS OUT

At the police station, she was made to wait even though she was bleeding from the head. She was sitting outside when a relative saw her.

Nirmal Kaur lives in the second floor of Nirmal building, North Avenue Road, Santacruz west
A D Singh, a well-known fashion designer, said, “I was passing by when I saw her sitting in the police station. I noticed that she was bleeding. I immediately stopped, went to her and took her to Cooper Hospital.”

While she was being attended to by doctors, Nirmal’s son Narender Singh who was not at home when the alleged incident happened reached there. He said, “My father never beat my mother in his entire life. This is a heinous crime and justice should be done to my mother.”

Sub-inspector Shashikant Padve, Santacruz police station, said, “We have registered a case of assault against Inderpreet and her daughter.”

Inderpreet said she was in the police station when Mumbai Mirror called and refused to talk about the allegations.

They [Nirmal’s daughter-in-law and granddaughter] grabbed my hair and put me down on the floor. They then hit my face and head with a stick. I started bleeding and fell unconscious.

Muslim vet ostracised for sheltering pigs

Posted by 498A_Crusader on November 3, 2007

//Law to Protect animals in India,but None for Men….! Phir bi Mera bharath Mahaan…?a

Patna, Nov 3: He has been sheltering pigs out of official compulsion. But a Muslim veterinarian in Bihar now finds himself ostracised by friends and family alike as the animal is considered ‘napak’ (impure) in Islam.

So much so that Alam Azad, a senior veterinary officer in Kishanganj district, 300 km from here, now fears that fellow Muslims may not even allow him to go on the Haj pilgrimage to Mecca this year.

“I have been ostracised for giving shelter to pigs. I tried to convince them but failed. No one is ready to understand my predicament,” said Azad, who has kept 107 pigs in a bamboo enclosure outside his official residence for over 45 days to produce them in court as “evidence”.

Azad, who is in his 50s, told IANS he was helpless and upset that neither his Muslims friends nor his own family was ready to understand his plight.

“How can I free the pigs when they are evidence against arrested smugglers? It is my official duty to look after them,” he said.

Azad has been looking after the pigs at his own cost since the time they were confiscated while being smuggled to Nepal Sep 16. He has been spending Rs.500 daily on animal feed and on employees who look after them.

Till date, Azad has spent over Rs.32,000 from his own pocket on the animals. “I have not been paid a single rupee by the district administration,” he said.

“I have no option but to keep them in safe custody and produce them in court,” said Azad.

Official sources said an animal husbandry officer had raided Belwa village in Kishanganj town near the Nepal border and confiscated the pigs that were being taken for sale. The officer said the pigs were being tortured. The animals were confiscated under the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act. Police accompanying the official also arrested two alleged smugglers.

Sources in the Kishanganj district administration said the police had refused to keep the pigs on the grounds that there was no shelter for them. Local cowshed owners also refused to keep them, fearing they would infect the cows and dirty the place.

Azad is now worried over whether he will be able to catch a flight to Jeddah Nov 11 and go on a Haj pilgrimage.

“Some members of my community have said they will not allow me to go on Haj as I have given shelter to pigs,” he said.

He is now banking on district officials who have promised to help him by arranging another shelter for the pigs.
