Wife files dowry case & husband locked up ..2 years after Arneesh kumar !!

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 !

In-laws demand Rs 10L as dowry for jobless son

BHOPAL : A woman filed a case against her in-laws accusing them of harassing her for dowry of Rs 10 lakh on Tuesday. The couple got married just before 8 months, while after a few days of marriage she left her in laws home because of dowry harassment.

She married Engineer Chandresh Pal, resident of Gulmohar. She mentioned in her complaint that her marriage was solemnised in June 2015. After a few days of marriage, her husband, father-in-law Shubhash Chandra Pal and mother-in-law Usha started torturing her for dowry. They said that their son is an engineer and dowry of Rs 6 lakh was not enough for an engineer, and told Shalini to bring Rs 10 lakh more in dowry. Shalini mentioned that her husband is an engineer but he was jobless and also mentally disturbed. She was beaten by him and threatened of murder if she filed any case against his family.
