Misuse of IPC 498/A (Domestic violence Prev Act)
Indian Penal Code 498/A was enacted with a very good intention of protecting the wives from dowry related and other domestic violence. But it was shocking to know certain results a recent survey revealed. It seems this law is misused by some fraudulent women and their relatives to book non-bailable cases against poor men (husbands)...! It was more shocking to understand that about 56000 men commit suicides every year relating to this law. It seems only 2% of the cases booked are proven to be genuine. If laws which are framed for the betterment of the society are not observed and used in the proper way how dangerous they can be...?
