Thought the Honourable Supreme court has categorically stated that Husbands (other others ) should NOT be arrested on the mere complaint of a woman (in cases where the punishment is less than 7 years), in the famous case of Arneesh Kumar Vs State, ( Arnesh Kumar vs State Of Bihar & Anr on 2 July, 2014 CRIMINAL APPEAL NO. 1277 OF 2014 (@SPECIAL LEAVE PETITION (CRL.) No.9127 of 2013)) ) there are umpteen cases where the husbands are arrested without court order and immediately following the wife’s complaint !!
Here is one such case from Tamil Nadu, where the husband is arrested by the police and there is NO mention of any court’s direction / order to arrest the husband
This happens day in and day out as husbands are subject to arrest and humiliation so that they can be milked high and dry !
