Heard learned counsel for the petitioner and learned Public
Prosecutor. Perused the material available on record.
Shri Shah learned counsel for the petitioner contends that
soon after her marriage, the deceased Smt.Murti eloped with one
Jetha Ram and owing to the said incident, her relations with her
and husband Bhagirath Ram became strained. Owing to this,
Smt.Murti committed suicide. In support of this contention, he
drew the Court’s attention to the statement of Smt.Mangi Devi,
mother of the deceased. He urges that there is no evidence worth
(2 of 2)
the name on record to show that the petitioner being the father in
law ever harassed or humiliated the deceased on account of
demand of dowry and prays that the petitioner deserves to be
enlarged on bail.
Learned Public Prosecutor vehemently opposes the
submissions advanced by the petitioner’s counsel.
Having regard to the entirety of facts and circumstances as
available on record and upon a consideration of the arguments
advanced at the Bar, this Court is of the opinion that the petitioner
deserves to be enlarged on bail.
Consequently, the bail application is allowed. It is ordered

connection with F.I.R. No.277/2016, P.S. Dhorimanna, District

appear before that Court on all dates of hearing and as and when
