IMPORTANT : This message is of common interest, for all Indian States- if we do this exercise all over India we will make a quantum jump in tackling the menace of 498a(arrests by police could be avoided to a large extent, even without Anticipatory bails). So please read carefully

Here is some stuff which you have to use with conviction(they are not the panacea you are looking for, but they could be, if you use it well. The Hyderabad group has used these material and had avoided an arrest(See http://groups.yahoo.com/group/saveindianfamily/message/83251 and its threads), so take the help of the Delhi group and do it for yourselves, but you need to do some work too ok, here is the plan)

See the links below, mainly

1) Hyderabad Police Commissioner has issued a memo to all AP police stations based on the judgement(Joginder Kumar Vs State of UP) , there will be similar memo issued by Commissioner of Police to all Police stations in delhi, similarly in other states of India (since the judgement below has directed all the states to issue such a memo and most likely all the commissioner of police would have issued them around 2002 like in Hyderabad). So take some help from our delhi team and get the Similar memo for Delhi through Right to Information(RTI, similarly others can do for their states).

2) judgement(Joginder Kumar Vs State of UP- Powers Of The Police To Arrest )

3) judgement(Allahabad HC reiterating the judgement of Joginder Kumar Vs State of UP)

Hope you are in touch with the delhi team, if not ask someone to contact them tomorrow(Saturday) when they have their weekly meeting in Patiala House(Gate no.2, at the Lawns there, from 4PM to 7 or so). For phone numbers see http://www.savefamily.org/)

Hi All in the group,

I wish all the states do this RTI work and get the respective commissioner memo which follows the Judgement of Joginder Kumar Vs State of UP. These memos will help the local groups to avoid arrests of families accused of false 498a, if we do this all over India with at least some rate of success we would have made a quantum jump in tackling the menace of 498a.

1) Here is the link to the judgments and Hyderabad Commissioner Memo:

for complete details see http://ipc498a.wordpress.com/2008/03/29/hyd-comm-of-police-no-arrest-without-permission-of-dcp-in-498a-cases-2002/

There will be an equivalent of this order from the Delhi police commissioner, etc.(other State guys please put RTIs to fish out the respective Commissioner of Police memos, there is one in Mumbai which I am going to get soon), get that through RTI.
