Woman Arrest Law in INDIA

An incident took place in Pune – a young girl was attacked by a man
posing as a plain clothes officer; he asked her 2 come 2 the police
station when she & her male friend didn’t have a driver’s license 2
show. He sent the boy off 2 get his license and asked the girl to
accompany him to the police station. Took her instead to an isolated
area where the horrendous crime was committed. The law [which most of
us are not aware of clearly states that between 6 pm and 6 am, a
woman has the right to REFUSE to go to the Police Station, even if an
arrest warrant has been issued against her. It is a procedural issue
that a woman can be arrested between 6am and 6pm, ONLY if she is
arrested by a woman officer & taken to an ALL WOMEN police station.
And if she is arrested by a male officer, it has to be proven that a
woman officer was on duty at the time of arrest.

Everyone in this country must know this.
