India: The 498A Survival Kit – A Guide To Surviving IPC 498A

Linked with Indira Jaising – India.

Indian Penal Code – Section 498A, IPC – Introduced in the Penal Code by Criminal Law (Second Amendment) Act of 1983 (Act No. 46 of 1983)

498A: HUSBAND OR RELATIVE OF HUSBAND OF A WOMAN SUBJECTING HER TO CRUELTY: Whoever, being the husband or the relative of the husband of a woman, subjects such woman to cruelty shall be punished with imprisonment for a term which may extend to three years and shall also be liable to fine.
Section 498A of the Indian Penal Code, is a criminal offence. It is a cognizable, non-bailable, and non-compoundable offence.

The lines above give the definition of the law known as section 498A Of the Indian Penal Code or IPC498A for short.

In reality, IPC 498A is a country-wide, legalized, multi-million dollar extortion racket. It is run  under the pretext of providing protection to women by a corrupt political establishment. The Indian Police force, the lower judiciary, Indian Feminazi NGOs  and the legal fraternity are the primary beneficiaries of this evil racket.
All that is necessary for the defeat of this evil,  is that victims of this racket choose to stand and fight.

A lot of the complaints filed under 498A are not worth the paper they are written on. Most of them appear to be  filed using  a template.

The Supreme Court (Srinivasulu Vs State Of AP-2007) has stated that:

Consequences of cruelty which are likely to drive a woman to commit suicide or to cause grave injury or danger to life, limb or health, whether mental or physical of the woman is required to be established in order to bring home the application of Section 498A IPC.”

Please understand the sentence above and try to prevent your case and your lives from ending up in the sewer known as the Indian criminal justice system. Use the judgments of Justice Dhingra and the standing orders of the Delhi and Hyderabad police Commissioners to do so.
