Lots of friends from outside India think that Indian males get arrested because they are wife beaters and dowry seekers… Lots of ppl are confused seeing 1000s of Indian being arrested without rhyme or reason
In India, NOT just the husband, but entire families can be arrested based on a woman’s complaint or due to a woman’s suicide…
It will take another 10 years for the truth to surface and by then you could have lost your job, reputation and all for NO fault of yours (i.e. for just being a brother or a sister !!)

GHAZIABAD: A software professional working with a Noida-based MNC was arrested from his house in Crossings Republik on Monday after his 26-year-old wife was found dead in the society compound the previous night, directly underneath the balcony of their fourth-floor flat. The couple has a daughter who is a year old.
Sandeep Gupta (30) and his younger brother Mandeep were booked under sections 304B (dowry death) and 498A (cruelty) and provisions of the Dowry (Prohibition) Act, 1961 after the woman’s father alleged she had been murdered and there had been frequent disputes between Sandeep and her.
Sandeep, however, told police his wife Trupti had jumped from the balcony after an argument with him. “Sandeep claimed Trupti crossed the balcony railing and jumped down in a fit of rage,” said Janendra Tomar, in-charge of Crossings police outpost.
Trupti was taken to a nearby private hospital by Sandeep and Mandeep. Police said they had received a call on the 100 helpline from the society but were not present when Trupti was taken to the hospital around 9pm. Doctors at the hospital declared her brought dead.
Trupti and Sandeep were married for a little over two years and had been living in Orchid Tower of Paramount Symphony apartments. Mandeep was also living with them, police said. “Mandeep, who works as an assistant to a tax consultant in Ghaziabad, had been sharing the flat with the couple since the past two years,” a police officer said.
Trupti’s family filed a complaint against Sandeep and his brother at Vijay Nagar police station on Monday. “This is murder, not suicide. Sandeep and his brother killed Trupti and then flung her body from the balcony. There have been several instances in the past of dispute between Sandeep and Trupti,” alleged Pradeep Gupta, Trupti’s father.
“Sandeep was arrested along with his brother Mandeep. They have been booked for dowry death. But investigations are under way to determine if there was any other possible reason leading to her death,” said DSP Indrapal Singh, Vijay Nagar circle officer.
The body was sent for an autopsy and cops said further action will be taken on the basis of the report.
