Respected Sir / Madam
I`m 65 year old widow from india; I have two daughters and a son, my son and one daughter is already married and staying in different cities, far away from my house.
Last year one night police came and arrested me and my younger daughter, and dragged us to police station, they abused and humiliated me and my daughter without any reason. we were subjected to many types of in human treatments and insults, we were arrested without Bail and charges were non compoundable.
My Other daughter was also arrested similar way, she was pregnent at that time,still they draged her to jail, and subjected same cruel treatment. Even they did not spare her 2 year old breast fed daughter, she was also in jail because she cann`t stay away without mother.
After 2 weeks, and paying huge sums of money we were released on bail, now said case is going on. Lawyers demanding for more money and judge refuse to listen to us.
Now after this arrest no one is ready to marry my daughter, and we are sepearted from my son family and i have denied access to see my grandson.
My son married to a girl whom he loved, its love marriage and there was no dowry involved nor i interfer in thier life and stayed far away from them.
Few days back,before all this happend, my son found out that his wife is having affair and questioned her, as indian judiciary and law system says married women can sleep with her lover and husband has no right to object her, but what was my mistakes ? my daughter never done any wrong to our daughter in law, still she named us all in her false dowry case.
My son never took or demanded any dowry
Nor we visted him, niether they stayed with us. just on one word of that women police took action and arrested even breast feeding innocent child.
Under this law [ IPC 498A ] there will no in enquiry or investigation, women one word is enough to file charge sheet, and this section is non bailable and compoundable.
This is a human right violation and crime against humanity, its corrupt indian government sponsored legal terrorism.
Indian law system, and judiciary know there is 98% misuse in this law, but there is no change in this law since 1983,so everyday thousands of innocent arrested all over India. and for NRI, interpol issue RED NOTICE, without checking truth behind such complaints.
Some Indian women ministeres boldly boast, with the support of National commission for women (NCW) its time for men to suffer, it means this law is used to harass men and his family. Indian law will support one women (false Reason) and harass many other women thats how indian government eMpower women. They think after arresting husband and his family his wife live happily in that house or all her problems solved.
Under this law many innocent are harassed than solved their problems.and its Human right Violation. with this situation i`m not the only one, you can many such victims tortured under this law on
PLEASE STOP THIS LEGAL TERRORISM
on behalf of thousand innocent Indian women.
