  • Not to be too tongue in cheek, but mostly, the legal system doesn't work when it comes to addressing these cases in India.

it doesn’t

Murder is illegal in India and a murderer is not entitled to inherit from their victim. That’s the law.

In many cases, the law is not enforced.

Law is a reflection of culture and, where the culture and the law is misaligned, the law is often ignored or otherwise perverted. Unfortunately, Indian culture remains highly mysogonistic and many crimes with female victims including murder and rape are simply not enforced.

Just like many laws in many countries that require genders, races, etc. to be treated equally are not enforced.

The law in India is sound. The culture needs to change. Having laws that reflect the culture a country wants rather than the culture they have impart of shifting the culture but it is insufficient on its own.
