well you can contact Mr Ganguly from this website . he is from kolkata and can guide you as to the functioning of CAW cell in kolkata .
1. CAW cell has no existence in Kolkata.
2.In WB or in Kolkata to be specific if any complaint is lodged by wife, the Police is equipped to register FIR straightway and may not wait for causing necessary investigation.
3. Fortunately courts are conscious about misuse of 498A cases and in appropriate cases do apply its judicial mind to grant bail.
4. To minimize the effect to take some pre-emptive measures.
1. Lodge a well drafted police complaint u/s 498A against those who subjected you to cruelty giving location & time of the incidences faced by you,
2. Try to collect evidence in support of your such complaint,
3. Your husband & others named in the said complaint will be arrested if you can produce proper evidence in support of your complaint,
4. They will be prosecuted according to law,
5. Avoid lodging police complaint out of sheer vengeance on your husband &/or his family members without any supportive evidence since it may back fire later on.
1. Mr.Barman has already mentioned that CAW cell doe snot exist in Kolkata.
2. You should lodge a flawlessly drafted complaint against your husband. Get it drafted from a lawyer. If your complaint reveals violation of law by your husband and in-laws then they may be arrested and prosecuted according to law.
3. That police in India takes sides with those who have thick pockets is a well known fact. In the event that you are denied justice by police you may move to court.

if you are a victim of dowry harassment and if you have been subject to cruelty by your husband and in laws go ahead and file complaint under section 498A . in the alternative you can file domestic violence case and seek protection order from court . you can rely upon the voice recordings in support of your case .
you can contact MR Barman /Mr Ganguly from this website in case you desire to engage their services .
contact district legal aid service in your area for free advise and another legal work, due to women you can get all legal assistance free of cost and they will provide you a lawyer for fighting your case.

Since you are a victim of dowry harassment and domestic violence you may set the legal process in motion by filing a complaint related to dowry harassment and also a case for domestic violence in court. Court may issue an order granting protection to you. You may also seek maintenance from your husband. The voice recordings in your possession may help you in court.
Thank you is a very small word for expert guidance given by you all .. just one last question can I file DV case for protection and maintance and 498a case for harrasment and dowry demand together .

Ye, you can file all the cases simultaneously.
However the trial o 498A and DV case shall be held separately but may be in the same court.
yes you can file both 498A / DV case simultaneously . trial shall be held separately
