What should be my stand in court?
Hmmm… I find the question quite perplexing, when a man is facing a false 498a or DV (Domestic Violence) case or an unjustifiable demand for maintenance from wife: “what should be my stand in court?” How about: “I’m innocent! Let the law take its course.” Apparently for 80-95% of Indian husbands, that’s too much complication. They want to have a ‘stand’ which will achieve the following for them: If they are fearing IPC 498a, then anticipatory bail should be easy to get. (Note: after Jul 2014 SC judgment, it appears arrests have drastically come down so this concern should reduce) If they already have maintenance case filed on them, then they should be able to pay zero or very low maintenance. If wife is simply threatening at home, then they should be able to safeguard … [Read more...] about What should be my stand in court?

Learn how to use IPC sections 498a, 307, and 376 to create negotiating spaces!
http://www.thehindu.com/news/national/article1159868.ece Referring to news item above: I am not saying it's not abused. Just because it empowers women and gives them a negotiating space, [there are demands] that it be repealed. This is male chauvinism.” Justice Ganguly pointed out that Section 307 of the IPC was the most abused with instances of even a slap being construed as an attempt on one's life. As a SC judge, Justice A K Ganguly believes that IPC 498a gives women a negotiating space. The citizens would like to know further from the learned SC judge all the other sections of IPC which are meant to give negotiating space to citizens. He states that IPC 307 (attempt to murder) is most abused. I hope it is not because judiciary treats charges like “attempt to … [Read more...] about Learn how to use IPC sections 498a, 307, and 376 to create negotiating spaces!
