dear friend .. arrest is not mandatory after crpc 41 ammendment . and thats what usually honest IO will do .. he will not come to your house to arrest you .. but its girl family who create pressure on IO for arrest .. if girl family go to police after FIR is registered .. police will come to your house to arrest you .. best is to hide your self if fir is registered and apply for AB .. most probably case will go for mediation and you will get interim relief
i am going thro same situation ..

The offence u/s 498a is a non-bailable offence however it depends from place to place about making an arrest or not. Mostly in the entire states of the country, the police are not very serious about arresting the accused until and unless they get pressures from their higher ups/complainant's side. You cannot ask the police to not to arrest you under the said provisions of law instead to obtain an anticipatory bail and move around safely.
