Anti-dowry law makes it wife-biased, discriminatory,and poorly formulated. A complaint from your wife or her family member can land husband and his entire family in jail without any investigation.
"The power of the Executive to cast a man into prison without formulating any charge known to the law, and particularly to deny him the judgment of his peers, is in the highest degree odious and is the foundation of all totalitarian government whether Nazi or Communist."
- Winston Churchill
"The Superintendent of Railway Police (Howrah) has been asked to personally conduct an inquiry into the incident. The constable has been closed in the police lines. Action will be taken against him if he is found guilty," DGP (Railways) Dilip Mitra said.
Bishnu Basak, the injured passenger, said that after boarding the train at Samudragarh station, he was accosted by the constable who asked him why he had boarded the ladies compartment.
"I apologised to him saying I did not realise it was a ladies compartment as the train was leaving when I reached the platform and I was in a hurry. He then asked for my ticket. When I showed it to him, he snatched it and kicked me out of the moving train," Basak said.
Locals rushed him to a nearby hospital from where he was moved to the SSKM Hospital here late in the night. He was then shifted to the Sambhunath Pandit Hospital where he is now admitted.
Mitra visited Basak at the hospital during the day to inquire about the incident.
