This an e-mail forward I got. I never knew about such a provision in law till I read the mail. Requesting all of you to read it carefully. It is really important I feel.I am actually ashamed to put up this post. It exposes the uncivilized crooks of our nation. But for the better good of many I recommend you all to read this. Check out the Irony – They depict justice as a blind folded lady and here in our country the most heinous of crimes are directed against the Ladies of our Society.

An incident took place in Pune – a young girl was attacked by a man posing as a plain clothes officer; he asked her to come to the police station when she & her male friend didn’t have a driver’s license to show on a regular inspection. He sent the boy off to get his license and asked the girl to accompany him to the police station. The police man took her instead to an isolated area where the horrendous crime was committed. The law [which most of us are not aware of] clearly states that between 6 pm and 6 am, a woman has the right to REFUSE to go to the Police Station, even if an arrest warrant has been issued against her.

It is a procedural issue that a woman can be arrested between 6pm and 6am, ONLY if she is arrested by a woman officer & taken to an ALL WOMEN police station. And if she is arrested by a male officer, it has to be proven that a woman officer was on duty at the time of arrest.

It is good for us to know our rights !!
