Plea not to harass men

KOCHI: The Purusha Vimochana Vedhi has urged the government not to harass men in the name of implementing the provisions of the Dowry Prohibition Act and the Domestic Violence Act.

Unnnikrishnan Nair, State president of the vedhi, said here that Clause 498 A in the Dowry Prohibition Act gave the wife the powers to lodge complaints against her husband for petty differences. He said that the police can arrest the husband and his relatives without conducting any investigations on the allegations.

The vedhi representatives said that there were also provisions in the Domestic Violence Act, which gives the wife the powers to lodge complaints against her husband over trivial issues.
