Seven-yr-old faces dowry charges

Seven-yr-old faces dowry charges

Sameer Kumar, Abhay Mohan Jha
Saturday, May 26, 2007 (Begusarai)
A seven-year-old has been charged in a dowry case in Bihar.

Santosh, a class four student has paid the price for a crime he did not commit.

''They framed me in a dowry case. I study in class 4. Police came to my house and asked for money. They threatened to send me to Munger otherwise,'' he said.

Santosh was named in a dowry harassment case last year along with his parents and his elder brother.

His parents and brother got bail after his father reached a compromise with the complainant. But given Santosh's tender age, the court didn't pass any specific bail order in his name.

Santosh's lawyer says there were serious lapses in the way the case was handled.

''The age of none of the accused has been mentioned in the entire case diary,'' said Vijay Maharaj.

Police admit they made a mistake but say the witnesses in the case had a role to play.

''None of the witnesses mentioned that the accused is under age. I agree that we have made a mistake in this case,'' said Amit Lodha, SP, Begusarai.

Police say Santosh can breathe easy irrespective of the outcome of the case. But this comes as cold comfort for someone who has learnt a bitter lesson so early in life.


When would the government spring into action. After how long and after how many lives? Snatching the basic rights in the name of women empowerment?

Comments:
So much has been said about the misuse of this so called Penal Code 498A and DV law. Ladies have been unnecessarily fully armed to start with.

So basically they have been told..."go get married and then if you don’t want to live with him then you can get him and in-laws arrested and he pays quicker when behind bars." It is as simple as this.

It is an insult to have someone arrested in this way and to place him behind bars and made to negotiate after making him taste the food behind bars. How did Gandhi feel when he was placed behind bars? Have I not said enough?

Look what Peace – UK and other UK guys have been saying for many months under various topix related to this>>>"Indian Penal Code 498A and DV law." The majority of the cases involve people in India. We are not against India. What is being said can help to place the minds thinking once again for these types of misuses.

A lady dropped her clothes in the streets of Rajkot and walked wearing 2 clothes in this wet weather. Why? The whole world saw that. In films for such scenes, they get paid few lakh rupees. I am not saying that she does not have a case. That is up to the court to find out. There are other ways to get the message across. The easiest way is via the misuse of this law which exists. It has minimum risk for the lady but maximum punishment for the husband and in-laws. And she goes for it. Same way the lady does not want to be harassed by the in-laws; the husband and the in-laws also don’t want to be harassed like this by being arrested to start with.

The case is regarded as a criminal case. So what happens in a normal criminal case, where for example, some one breaks into a house and is locked up? Who takes him to the court and who pays the fees to sentence him? Why in these sorts of Penal Code 498A and DV law cases, the man has to bail himself out and later hire a lawyer to prove his innocence? Why call someone a criminal when he is not a criminal? Why the police don’t take him and others named in the case to the court to prove that they are criminals…same as they do in other real criminal cases and lock them up for many years when found guilty? That will be expensive…yes? So now you see how all this has been so nicely worked out! The husband and the in-laws pay.

That question asked by Peace – UK still remains. Will a minister’s son and others in the family be arrested with one single complain from a lady? Will they be placed behind bars and then they bail themselves out to prove that they are not criminals? Will they be arrested like other Indians and NRIs say for example, on a Friday and then told that the offices are closed and so they have to stay inside for the whole weekend?

So basically the law is organised in such away that the government spends as little as possible. The man pays. I am not going to go into the details of the money he ends up paying under the table here and there. NOW WHO IS GOING TO SAY THIS DOES NOT HAPPEN IN INDIA ON VERY REGULAR BASIS? See the films where such scenes are not censored as they are there to open the people’s eyes. The government lets such scenes go through hoping that the bribery and corruption in the country will go down a bit but then on the other hand they have introduced these one sided laws!

What I am trying to say is that the man and the in-laws do end up paying a lot to put their lives back on track after these false accusations. No compensation is there for them. The lady drops the clothes and says she does not have any money to compensate for the disturbance caused to the husband and the in-laws. And that works. People easily take the side of the lady who drops the clothes. What chances do the husband and the in-laws have? Peace – UK has said that NRIs also have feelings and get hurt. They value their hard earned money and lives also. This is the message for the people in India to do something and the message for the NRIs who think of marrying an Indian lady from India. UK Human

Comments: Sridevi mannava a lunatic female filed a fake 498a case against me.
I then got a stay order from high court. I went to India last year when the high court stay order was live. Mannava ram mohan rao a well known gunda who is the father of the complainant got me arrested joing hands with the police.Also the lower court has issued non bailable warrants while the stay order was still in force.
So you can clearly understand the situation I hope. When a higher court has issued a stay how can a lower court and police take action??? This can only happen in india. the bottomline is corruption.Can anyone think of any other alternative.
Interesting this is the girl has already left to USA and her dad wants to get huge amount of money from me.
The world media boosts too much about india but indian laws are barbaric and biased.
I pledge all the NRI's to come forward and support this situation and we can even put in media.
Disgraceful.
Long live NRI's.
 
The formless consists of attributes Truth, Righteousness, Equanimity, Love and Non-Violence (also known as The Rules). From which we got our ancestors consisting of hydrogen, oxygen,calcium, carbon etc as mentioned by you also above. During creation there was nothing. He did not go to look for hydrogen and oxygen to make water...if He had done so then it would have only confirmed there was someone before Him.

Once we are able to discard the feeling of this body, what remains is the formless attributes. That is the Bliss stage and we have a feel of that during meditation. Those attributes all together make one powerful Super Human Power. That never dies and so never comes back. It is always there. God never takes birth. The form takes birth.

Religion can be regarded a systematic faith in this Super Human Power called GOD.

WHAT DO THESE RULE BREAKERS FOLLOW?

WHY THEY DONT LIKE DAUGHTERS?

PLEASE DONT BREAK THE RULES USING YOUR MONEY POWER.

AND PLEASE DONT MISUSE THE INDIAN PENAL CODE 498A AND DV LAW EITHER. Peace - UK

“Salats asked to settle dispute out of court

Express News Service
Ahmedabad, July 30: While granting bail to Chirag Salat, accused of forcing wife Pooja to abort a female foetus and harassing her for failing to bear a male child, the Sessions Court on Monday asked the couple to resolve the dispute between themselves.

Chirag, prime accused in the case, is the last member of his family to have been granted bail in the case. Additional Sessions Judge PP Bhatt fixed a surety of Rs 20,000 against the bail.

Pooja had alleged that Chirag and 17 others had been mentally and physically harassing her for the last nine years for failing to bear a male child. She had alleged that her in-laws forced her to undergo an abortion in 1998 after a sex determination test revealed she was carrying a female foetus. The test was allegedly conducted at Dr Sanat Joshi’s clinic. She had also accused the Salats of demanding Rs 25 lakh as dowry.

On Monday, defence lawyers Sudhir Nanavati and Prakash Shah contended that Pooja filed her police complaint a few days after Chirag filed for a divorce. They also submitted that not a single medical certificate was submitted by Pooja for injuries sustained during her stay with the Salats.”

----------------------------------------

THIS NEWS YOU READ ABOVE HAS BEEN ON INTERNET AND SO SHOWS HOW THIS CASE SUDDENLY IS NOT REGARDED AS A CRIMINAL CASE LIKE IT HAPPENS IN OTHER CASES AS PER INDIAN PENAL CODE 498A AND DV LAW !!!

IT WAS THOUGHT THAT EVEN THIS CASE WILL HAVE TO GO THROUGH THE RIGOROUS PROCESS AND THEREBY HURT THE MEN’S SIDE FOR SOME YEARS LIKE IT HAPPENS IN ALL OTHER CASES. I AM NOT SAYING THAT IT IS RIGHT TO DO THAT BUT HOW COME IT HAPPNES IN ALL OTHER CASES?

AND ALSO WHY THEY HAVE BEEN ASKED TO SETTLE OUTSIDE THE COURT WHILE OTHER CASES ARE GOING ON FOR 5-6 YEARS?

AND SEE HOW QUICKLY THIS DECISION HAS BEEN REACHED!!!

SO WHAT MESSAGE IT SENDS TO THE REST OF THE WORLD AND SPECIALLY THE FEMALE POPULATION IN INDIA?

ON 26TH JULY Peace - UK said above " Quickly Mrs Renuka Chaudhary should get involved personally in this case otherwise this case can disappear. Normally these type of criminal cases (as they are criminal case in India) take about 5-6 years to come to an end."

So one can see how people know in advance how money speaks faster in India.

Where money buys the legal system, these sort of things will keep happening. The other day a guy was telling me that to survive in India, you need to be a gunda or have lots of money. And that is not the majority in India. The straight forward people and the poor form the majority and they suffer. And many of the others seem to be in power and they rule. In pakistan they overthrow such government.....and that is also not the answer. But one such overthrow in Indai will open up some people's brains and I am sorry to say that finally. Peace - UK
 
RE: "INDIAN PENAL CODE 498A AND DV LAW"

Some notes from internet and more additions done:

"There are many number of cases where even if no dowry was taken / demanded; just because wife was not able to adjust to husband home, in the name of Dowry, 498a has been used as an instrument to harass innocent husband, his age old parents and his married / unmarried sisters.

Based on girl’s complaint, police blindly without any proof or enquiry; arrested all those named in the complaint and put them in jail.

Although Judges strongly feel that provisions of 498a needs to be changed, but are unable to do any thing since power to amend Law is in the hands of our Politicians.

Since provisions of Sec, 498a IPC are one sided, this has contributed to increased divorce rate. Recently introduced Domestic Violence Act is also one sided and will further accelerate divorce rate. Single-parent system is worst for any society especially for growing children and will deteriorates Law and order situation.

India is not the only country where family disputes take place; however, no country has laws, which empowers its police to arrest family members without an investigation. In no country people are put in jails, until case has been heard by a judge and person declared a culprit. It is only in India where people implicated with 498a, are put in Jails even before case is heard by a Judge."

NRI’s are also trapped by such laws. Many previously used to visit India on regular basis and also contribute at various places but now are no longer able to do this. May be this is a drop in an ocean for India and “who cares” approach takes place from within India but the word is going around fast in more far away countries also. Let me say no more. Peace - UK
 
“WITHOUT PREJUDICE”

“INDIAN PENAL CODE 498A AND DV LAW

This Penal code 498A and DV law have been brought in too quickly to slow down any problems men might give to women. Basically it is like a dog chain on a man’s neck after he gets married.

As we hear all the time, there is a caste system existing in India and there are people who are underpaid. So as such, these people must be suffering. And as I understand, these people are in thousands. So if a law similar to Indian Penal Code 498A is introduced for these people to use (or shall I say misuse?), then what will happen to the Indian economy. Can a low caste person and can an underpaid person walk into any police station and complain and get the employer etc arrested? Surely India can collapse for a while in such circumstances as the number of people suffering seems to be very high. What if there is an uprising from this majority? The whole world will be in support of these sufferers. Why the politicians are waiting for such a time to come?

By no means I am trying to say that such one sided Penal Code 498A type laws are a useful tool. Much thought is needed for the wording of such laws. We are talking about 2007.

In real terms there are points which go against ladies. Firstly having people arrest after false complaints and then demand for money after false complaints can all be tackled as there are rules and regulations for all that. It appears that some lawyers find a quick way by encouraging men to give money to ladies to finish the cases. For arranging this, a lawyer can also get a fair share from the men. This cant be right.

Once again, by no means I am trying to say that such one sided Penal Code 498A type laws are a useful tool. Much thought is needed for the wording of such laws. We are talking about 2007.”

This is that video link guys---as seen at another topic.

http://www.498a.org/video.htm

This video will tell you how Karanbhai explained so much to Renukaji. She seems to be enjoying all this as the look on her face seems to be saying YES MAN WE HAVE GOT YOU.

For your information, guys' sisters and mothers are also being harrased and arrested---SO THIS MATTER NEEDS TO BE RECHECKED BY THE LAW MAKERS AGAIN. THIS REFERS MAINLY TO THE INDIAN PENAL CODE 498A.
