I have came across numerous cases where an NRI or a citizen of another country is falsly accused of baseless 498a, 125 and other relavent cases. FIR & chargesheets are filed and the hardworking NRI gets pulled into this nuisance that he had never imagined. Cases go on forever with no end and relatives are forced to attend the court dates. Husbands are labeled as criminals, becomes helpless and in a miserable situation. As especially for those who lives in another country with limited sources to the indian legal system and connections. I am in the similar situation and looking for some advice. This incident took place in 2013 and I need some clarification on below mentioned questions. Thank you
1. Is it a common practice to issue look out circular at indian airports for the NRI victims in 498a related cases what is its validity period and is it possible to find out if an LOC has been issued and how can he avoid surprise arrest.
2. If an NRI is arrested while travelling in and ouf of the country does indian court have rights by law to impound a US Passport to prevent the accused from travelling abroad.
