Police should not involve in family matters

Police should restrict their activities to maintenance of law and order , traffic and crimes in the society. Police manpower should not be wasted and police attention should not be diverted from their main functions because of their present jurisdiction in family disputes. Taking into account the ever-increasing family disputes in the society such as disputes between lovers who allegedly agreed to marry and ever increasing disputes among married people, and especially considering the fact that interference of police in family matters invariably results in irrevocable spoiling of family life in many families, family disputes should be kept outside the jurisdiction of police. Government guidelines may be issued to the effect that police should not interfere in family matters including issues/problems BEFORE MARRIAGE and AFTER MARRIAGE, unless the issue/problem is murder or attempted murder.
