SC modifies its verdict, do away with buffer against immediate arrests in dowry cases

Updated 14 Sep 2018 10:39 PM

The Supreme Court on Friday removed the buffer against immediate arrest in dowry harassment cases by modifying its earlier order to set up a committee to examine the complaints of married women before taking coercive action against the husband and the in-laws.

The top court said the direction to create family welfare committees in every district and the power conferred in them was "not in accord with the statutory framework".
