Its normal that the lawyers always ask the girls to file 498a and DV together even if there is no dowry involved.
Is it true that 498a is more a dowry related law and DV is only for domestic violance.
If there was a quarrel between husband and wife and if the wife only want to punish husband because of domestic violance then will the police arrest the husband only on DV
A Domestic violence is only for a protection order and the person is not arrested .Reliefs are provided in the form maintanence , custody protection order etc (SEC 18,19,20,21,22 of the DV act ) by the magistrate and after the court order if there is a breach of the protection order than the police can arrest w.r.t sec 31 of the DV act
or only in case if 498a the arrest is made to all members listed.
I would like to know on which IPC cases the in-laws gets arrested and in which cases they don't make an arrest?
Google and download IPC laws from the net and from that you will come to know which are Cognisable and non - cogniable offences
