No more Interpol Red Corner Notices in 498A

Interpol stops issuing notices
April 22nd, 2009


April 21: Interpol, which issues Red Corner notices to arrest criminals all over the world, has stopped issuing notices pertaining to Section 498(A) (dowry harassment) cases registered in India. There are about 3,000 requests for red corner notices from Indian government pending with Interpol.
The inspector-general of CID, Mr S. Umapathi, said there are as many as 120 cases from Andhra Pradesh pending with Interpol for the past eight months.
Sources in the CBI said Punjab tops the list with nearly 300 cases.
According to sources, there is no law pertaining to dowry harassment in US and other developed countries and hence the Interpol is in dilemma whether they can issue Red Corner notice based on the Indian law.
“The mater has been discussed with US embassy officials recently. However, there was no improvement in the status,” Mr Umapathi said. “There was no delay in other criminal cases,” he added.
The external affairs ministry had sent several representations to Interpol explaining the seriousness of the cases booked under Section 498 (A). However it failed to get any positive response from them.

Man pining for separated son commits suicide

In a tragic turn of events, a Canadian national of Indian origin committed suicide when he couldn't bear the separation from his child. It seems, in the present case the suicide victim, Syed Makdoom left behind a suicide message on his cellphone blaming his wife for this unfortunate situation and abetting his ordeal. He also has a personal blog - which sadly won't be updated any more - where he documents his personal life and plea for help. Unfortunately there is no systemic response for a man's plea for help.
May Peace be upon him.
