Law on arresting a woman

An incident took place in Pune - a young girl was
attacked by a man posing as a plain-clothes officer; he asked her to come to the
police station when she & her male friend did not have a driver's
license to show. He sent the boy off to 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 not be
arrested between 6pm and 6am, ONLY if she is arrested by a woman officer
& taken to an ALL WOMEN police station . Moreover, if a male
officer arrests her, it has to be proven that a woman officer was on duty at the
time of arrest. Please fwd this 2 as many girls you know. Also to boys coz
this can help them protect their wife, friends, sisters and mother. It is good
for us to know our rights................
