498a – Police should do a better job in investigating.

Women, who make such remarks need to be taught yet another definition of law. “Prima Facie”  , which means on the face of it. This effectively means legally , the statement of the women is to be treated as a gospel truth and nothing but the truth . There is no requirement for any additional evidences , as per the law. Infact legally speaking if the police do not make an arrest , they arent following the law. The girl’s statement against her husband and family members is considered as evidence, even if it is false. The police are infact helpless , even if they know that the case if false. The offense is cognizable , which means they have to register the complaint and the statement from the girl is to be treated as prima facie evidence , effectively resulting in the arrest of the husband and his entire family.
