498a is a very weak law. There should be law for death sentence for husbands who torture their wives physically and mentally and also demand dowry and harrass and torture in laws of daughters. 498a of DV act are insuffient and weak. There should be a law providing death sentence for husbands in cases involving torture of wives.Even visitation Rights of husbands should be banned if they torture wives. My daughter was mentally tortured and child snatched away. I know law though I'm not a lawyer who will take husband's side. I run a Foreign Women PG accomodation and they get shocked when they hear this nonsense about husbands going scot free.There shouldn't be any trial in enlarged scope for 498a providing for death sentence to husbands without trial who behave like Nazis treating their wives like jews. Enlarged scope of 498a should also include free arms to women, 50% of husband's salary and 50% of his own as well his ancestral property. 498a is a very bad law because its very weak.
