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
Three teenage girls from Saskatoon were arrested after a woman was stabbed in the back and another assaulted, police said.
Just after 6 a.m. Saturday, police were called to a home in the 2000 block of 20th Street W. for a report of an assault, said Staff Sgt. Darryl Billett.
There, police found two women, 19 and 20, who had been attacked. The 19-year-old had been stabbed in the back and was treated in hospital for non-life-threatening injuries, Billett said. She has since been released. Neither of the two victims were identified.
Police said three girls, two aged 15 and a 16-year-old, were arrested and charged with aggravated assault in connection with the attacks. Their names cannot be published under the provisions of the Youth Criminal Justice Act.
The girls were also charged with possession of stolen property in relation to a half-ton truck that had been stolen prior to the assaults, Billett said.
One of the girls also faces charges of breaching court-ordered conditions of a prior release from custody, police said.
No other information was available.
