National Family Harmony Society (NFHS), a non-governmental organisation promoting the cause of family harmony, has demanded strict implementation of the circular issued by Ministry of Home Affairs during October 2009 to all the State governments regarding the guidelines to be followed while arresting persons in case of dowry harassment cases. Speaking to presspersons here on Wednesday, M. Mahesh, General Secretary of NFHS, said that large numbers of dowry harassment cases were being misused and without verifying proper facts, and that relatives of the husband, including his parents and sisters, were being arrested by the police under 498A IPC.
