Post-498a- Getting a fair investigation done!

To get police to do a fair investigation is a very crucial step to have a chance of getting a B-report(clean chit) from the police(like in Prashant's case: ).

Do not think its rare so unworthy trying for, only if more and more people pursue and attain this, will the system as a whole get cleansed. So try it with all your might, if not a B-report the chargesheet will be full of investigative points favourable to you, which is good enough to get clean in court and then book the law miusers in court.

But approaching HC for getting fair investigation alone could be avoided if people are aware of some effective alternatives which were discussed in this forum some time back. The discussions earlier were about submitting evidences and investigation points(possible witnesses, facts, etc., which if investigated will be in favour of the accused) from the accused side.

The accused have to submit these evidences, etc. to the investigation officer(Copy to higher police officials, to keep up the pressure and to ensure a supervised process) and get an ackowledgement copy of these submissions.

The judgement mentioned in the post below(of Madhya Pradesh High Court about evidences provided by accused has to be incorporated in the chargesheet/final report the police submits to the court)also should be cited along with the evidences submitted by the accused for additonal pressure on the police to comply and do a fair investigation.

If and when the chargesheet is submitted to the court without incorporating the findings of such investigations(As pointed out by the submissions of accused), the accused should point out this descrepancy to the court/higher police officials and the court/higher police officials in turn can order the police to further investigate in the line of the submitted facts/investigation points by accused.

This procedure is desirable than a long drawn 482 proceeding(for just getting a fair investigation done) , which should be attempted only as a last refuge(after doing the above said procedures).

This should be our next action point since pre-498a scenario is now controllable with the delhi/hyderabad police circulars and the latest chennai HC guidelines(

Now we have to find that judgement, so that it can be attached to the submissions which an accused can give the police station, higher-ups, courts etc.

Lets make this system water tight from all sides possible.

The next step is to get the courts to conduct cases in a timely and effective manner, some study of the court system(processes involved : cradle to grave of a any case) is needed. After which we can volunteer as NGOs for implementing the findings of the study( to make the system and its processes optimum and effective). We had thought of video conferencing and confirmation of date by mobile/sms etc as some avenues of making the system effective- this is the need of the hour, since the pain after bail is of the futility and drudgery of courts!.

We need to do a System overhaul... if not we, who else?!, if not for our children... .

Section 482 can be used for purposes more than just quashing. 482 section is a
vast section which gives immense powers to the HC and many things can be done
through this section apart from quashing.

In a Petition u/s 482 for Fair Investigation and quashing filled by accused
husband the Madhya Pradesh High Court has ordered the Police to consider all the
doccuments provided by the accussed to the Police in his defense and to make all
these doccuments a part of the challan/charge sheet even though the
challan/charge sheet was already filled by the police without these doccuments.
The doccuments provided by the husband were Photographs of happy married life,
his earlier police complaints regarding threats of false cases, telephone
conversations of his wife, and many other bills and doccuments which proved his
innocence and also disproved the allegations by the wife..

This is a landmark case and all 498A guys should approach the Police and then
the high court demanding FAIR INVESTIGATION u/s 482. Demand for justice/ fair
investigation should be put up before the Police before they File the charge

NOWADAYS men are tortured in the hands of women by misusing newly formulated laws specially designed only for women. The law makers fully forgetting the constitutions article 14 which says all men and woman are equal before law or say equality before law. This article 14 giving equal strength to man and woman but formulating new law for women so for no law formulated by the law makers for men. Why?

A fine case of one Mr. Rathinasabapathy who was married with Rajeswari of Howrah at Pondicherry on 4th June 2003 started their life initially at Pondicherry latter after five months shifted to Bangalore where he was employed. The husband arranged job for his wife and he had given her all possible freedom which include to visit her parental house, to wear the dresses she feel convenient. But his all these freedoms and love showered towards the wife resulted in one fine day with hand cuffs of iron. Do you believe? YES THIS IS A TRUE STORY. The husband who once tried his best to keep his wife happy meted the cruelty by the same women. The husband arranged all physical mental pleasures for his wife but not fulfilled one demand which is affecting his parents, unmarried brother and sister. The wife demand for separate dwelling that too in such a place the language of which is a strange thing to the husband and leaving the old aged sick parents here all alone was not welcomed by the husband and which only resulted in iron hand cuffing like a herded criminal and lying in illegal custody for eight days.

The wife and her parents even not intimated him the child birth and somehow when he come to know the child birth he requested to send a snap of the child which was also not heard. For the new born the father send some gift which was also returned by the wife and her parents. Their cruelty reached at Himalayan peak when she lodged a complaint using the weapon of dowry and domestic violence act (DVA) and several other criminal section against husband and in-laws, the in-laws who never interfered her life. The question is if she really met cruelty by the hands of husband and his relatives why she had not opted to file a complaint in the jurisdiction police station which was only in walkable distance. She opted to file complaint in the Howrah police station and filed a divorce under section 13a and succeeded to get an expartee decree within 3 months of filing which is very impossible as per marriage law. The husband had not given time to file counter or for a counselling. When husband was attending for maintenance case and came out of the court he was arrested and handcuffed and remained in the custody for eight days and ninth day presented before the judicial magistrate and then kept one day in judicial custody and latter bailed out. The wife atlest shown curtsy by not opposing the anticipatory bail of in-laws.

The women how she forget the sweetness of togetherness, how she forget the sweet face of her husband which is now also in front of her in the form of child.

THE MEN WAS CRUSHED IN THE HANDS OF WOMEN. The men who is a M.Sc., M.Phil., earning sufficiently was now staring the sky with no hope for justice. His parents are weeping and sister, brother still in a stage of shock.

The reward paid by the wife to her husband is the only result of misusing of newly formulated laws. The court at Howrah which have no jurisdiction neither to try the suit for divorce nor for the criminal offence as the couple married at Pondicherry and last resided place at Bangalore, where both of them were employed and as such alleged offence held in Bangalore. So the decree which is passed by the Howrah Court is improper and the complaint also liable to be quashed. But these all will happen in future.

Wake and do something for men otherwise similar trouble tomorrow you also have to face. For this not only togetherness of men required but the togetherness of women also required.

NEVER MARRY IN A FAMILY WHICH HAS FILED A FALSE 498A CASE, I DID SUCH A MISTAKE AND REPENTING, NEVER DO THIS MISTAKE, 498a families are characterless families which have sexual perversions among them, avoid 498a families
