NCW wastes taxpayer’s money – Shut it down

Leave a comment

See the below news,

Audit raps NCW for huge backlog, spendthrift ways

And the chairperson, Dr. Vyas cites, “lack of manpower” as excuse.

Now, already the existing short manpower is spending extra-money, one can only imagine the splurge with more “manpower”.

When will the NCW stop fooling the nation?

Already the uncalled for “Male-Hatred” that the NCW is spreading is contributing to 58000 husbands committing suicide every year and every 9 mins a married man succumbing to social injustices spearheaded by the NCW.

Not only that in the last 5 years (2004-2008) 160,00o innocent women (mothers, sisters and other female relatives of husbands) have been arrested, without trial or investigation, under the dubious Section 498A – totally unconstitutional law and subject to widespread misuse.

Has the NCW been created to spread injustices in the society?

Will this Govt. answer this question?

Police can no longer arrest arbitrarily

1 Comment

The much debated CrPC Amendment Bill 2008, which contained radical reforms in Section 41.1 of the Criminal Procedure Code in the area of powers of arrest by police after the third report of the National Police Commission raised serious concerns on unnecessary arrests by police and told that 60% of arrests by police are unnecessary and are accounting for 43.2% of jail expenditure.

The amended section says,

  1. The police cannot arrest anyone before sending him a NOTICE OF APPEARANCE and in case the accused fails to comply with the notice, the police have to record reasons of arrest in court diary.
  2. Also the accused have to be supplied with an FIR copy, a lawyer of his choice and a proper medical checkup.

In the year 2007, 68 lakh persons were arrested out of which 40 lakh were unnecessary as per the National Police Commission report.

And many other sensational reforms which was a direct hit on the illegitimate income of lobby lawyers and police who used to thrive on the fear of innocent people to go to jail and used to extort them.

As a result lawyers did a lot of protests and under pressure, the Govt, told that the Bill has yet not been notified.

However, that is not the truth. The CrPC Amendment Bill 2008 has been notified in the Gazette of India as per Chapter 9.22 of the Manual of Parliamentary affairs in Ministries as Act No. 5 of 2009 on the 9th January 2009.

This information has been extracted out of the Ministry of Law and Justice by a comprehensive RTI operation spanning months and involving a volley of communication between the RTI applicant, Ministry of Law and Justice and Ministry of Home Affairs.

Also any reports about the act being reconsidered or it yet not been notified/gazetted are thoroughly misleading since it is already an ACT and has been notified as per the RTI communication below.

Please read page no. 6 and 10 in the PDF in the link below.

Victimized Mother

Meet an old Mother. A victim of 498A and Domestic Violence Act

She is just one of the 120,645 women arrested in last 4 years under Women Protection Laws alone, without any credible evidence, investigation or trial.

Do you know that in 2006, 55425 married men committed suicide compared to 29869 married women?

Do you know that 98% Men have faced Domestic Violence at least once in 3 years

(Study conducted by SFF and My Nation)

Do you know that trauma suffered by victims of false/fabricated cases is 10 times more than DV Victims?

Do penalizing innocent women & men under false cases bring justice to genuinely abused women?

In order to address these burning questions, Save Family Foundation and associated NGOs invite you to join us against protest on misuse of women protection laws and demand gender neutrality of DV Act on the

2nd Anniversary of Domestic Violence Act (Black Day) at

Jantar Mantar, New Delhi on 26/10/08 from 11 to 1 PM

Fight against misuse of Women Protection Laws and conspiracy to destroy the Family System of India. Let us prevent India becoming a Father Less Society

Arrest guidelines in case of 498a(cognisable crimes)- Judgement -Joginder Kumar Vs State Of UP

Leave a comment

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.
