Misuse of 498A by daughter-in-laws: Bijnor incident an eye-opener
Social media has proved its worth when Bijnor Police immediately arrested an erring daughter-in-law who was mercilessly trying to kill her aged mother-in-law after CCTV footage of the incident became viral on Facebook, Whatsapp etc.

This particular incident is an eye-opener for modifying provisions of section 498-A of Indian Penal Code (IPC) requiring stringent most provisions for false complaints made under the section, which may not be less than present punishment for husband's side in the IPC.

But there are peculiar situations when husband under sedition by wife disowns elderly family members at later stage of life after getting all their properties and assets transferred in their names. Many babas give strong doses of steroids mixed in so-called 'sacred ash (bhabhut)' or 'sacred water' to be given to husbands (and in-laws) by their wives (and daughter-in-laws) to keep them in control!

At times ignorantly in religious belief consumption of such 'sacred ash (bhabhut)' or 'sacred water' mixed with strong doses of steroids badly affects minds of those being made to consume at times even resulting in death.

Distributing any 'sacred ash (bhabhut)' or 'sacred water' for purpose of consumption should be immediately banned, and their distribution should attract severe most punishment under the law. Numerous such elements claiming knowledge of tantra through departed souls hold durbars to make fool of believers on day-to-day basis.

Even if theory may be held correct, how far is it justified to disturb departed souls after death of persons? Such elements instead create big tensions in the lives of others against whom they misuse their tantra-knowledge.

All such offences should attract sentence extending even to death-sentence by introducing new sections in Indian Penal Code (IPC), so as to be deterrent for wrong-doers.
