498 A

According to section 498A of the Indian Penal Code, anyone who subjects a woman to cruelty while they are the woman's husband or a relative of the husband is subject to a period of imprisonment that may last up to three years as well as a fine.

Cruelty against women in the context of marriage presented certain challenges in terms of bringing the accused to justice and establishing guilt. This was due to the fact that women suffer silently more often than not. Finding impartial witnesses is especially challenging because most violence against the wife takes place inside the four walls of the home, hidden from prying eyes.

Defending-498A

The Criminal Law (Second Amendment) Act of 1983 added Section 498A to the IPC. This part tries to stop married women from being tortured by their husbands or their family and to penalize them for harassing her in an effort to force dowry. Before 1983, the general provisions of the IPC that deal with assault, hurt, serious hurt, or homicide applied to harassment of a wife by her husband or her in-laws.

But everyone is now concerned about the rising occurrences of bride burning and the brutality against women, particularly young, just wed ladies. It was believed that the IPC's general provisions were insufficient to address atrocities against women.

To outline the fundamental crime of husbands' and husbands' relatives' abuse of women.

To implement policies that make investigations mandatory in certain circumstances of fatalities of women.

To amend the Evidence Act in a way that will facilitate the prosecution and conviction of those accused of violence against women.

All of this calls for the greatest lawyer, like Rohan Yemul in Mumbai.
