"GOOD PEOPLE DO NOT NEED LAWS TO TELL THEM TO ACT RESPONSIBLY, WHILE
BAD PEOPLE WILL FIND A WAY AROUND THE LAWS."– Plato
I met a quite a lot of beaurocrats and politicians about the misuse of the section 498a of the law. I was intrigued by the fact that 90% of the politicians remembered me and my cause when met them second time . On beaurocracy 90% of the people did not even bother to remember .
This important difference told me that beaurocracy is essentially interested in protecting their own interested while politicians interest is in ensuring they do not dissatisfy their voters . Many of their clashes with beaurocracy happens due to this .
Initially the politicians wanted to fob me off by saying that they will send letters to beaurocracy to act properly . I told that it was useless to do so as the beaurocracy and the lawyers have become fat on the bail cases.
It was a politician ponted out to me that you r not the only one who face the problem of needless arrest and it was him who pointed me out the National police commission Report III where in 63% of the arrests were needless . Somethinig needs to be done for them also.
the systems and lobbies need shock treatment they have got too much accostmed to picking up and jailing innocent people. The Legal system has got accostomed and become completely insensitive to plight of its innocent citizen .
This amendment has been in works since 2006 . There have lot of debates already happened .
The lawyers lobby in Delhi have started against CRPC 4.1 . Why becuase they make a far too much money out of bail proceedinigs.
I would have supported the lawyers lobby if they had raised and struck work agaiinst the delays in court.
Let us be honest litigants will not discomfitted with their strike becuase anyways all that happens in court is next Date
Save India family struck in front of Family courts on 17th January Demanding more judges . ( There is strenght of 4 today but only 2 are appointed and the leaves of existing judges are being approved even though there is pendency of cases , less staff to look into cases , Strange is it)

The Lawyers lobby are silent on this have never protested against the delays , never protested against there not being enough judges becuase they as a lobby are completely indifferent to the plight of citizens
Though there are good and excellent lawyers but as lobby Their stance of being concerned about citizens is completely hypocritical .
It is spoken hush hush that 20% of the settlement amount in courts is shared between the husbands lawyers and wifes lawyers and other parties
This is reason why the process is made and multiple laws on the same issues are being allowed by lawyers lobby in family situation becuase it can acts as pressure which is nothing but extortionist .
Yes a threat of jail do make husbands or their parents to settle cough up money but that goes completely contrary to priniciples of justice . Criminal law is not meant as an extortionist tool . Supreme Court iteself has decried the tendency of using the Criminal laws to settle civil cases and civil matters in many a matters The Great Indian lawyer is reluctant to fight on behalf of the husband and runs after settlement at the first even whiff .
The Fault of low conviction in dowry cases lie squarly with the police and the lawyers.
The Police for charge sheeting unnecessary frivolous cases .
Lawyers for unnecessary inciting to file criminal cases in civil matters
Public prosecutors for not telling police that they will not proceed unless evidences are present .
Dowry laws are not meant as tool of settlement in marital discord to those who bemaon that there will be less settlement .
The message from the representatives of people is clear
" IPC is not meant to be settled with money , neither is it the right of police to make arbitrary and general arrest in the hope that a few criminals will also get worried"
Very nice article. On one side the advocates wants that sec.41 of Cr.P.C. should not be amended and on other hand they want that advocates arrested in Chennai should be released. Double mouthed people.
this is an important topic to expose hypocracy of few lawyers
