CRL.P No. 610 of 2024

3. Heard the arguments of the learned counsel for the

petitioners and the learned HCGP for the respondent-State.

4. The case of the prosecution is that, on the compliant

of respondent No.2, the police registered FIR. It is alleged that

the petitioner after marriage started to harass physically and

mentally to bring dowry. After registering the case, the police

are making efforts to arrest the petitioners. Hence, they are

before this Court.

5. Considering the facts and circumstances that the

marriage was solemnized on 30.07.2023 and it is stated that

there was continuously harassment on her. But there is no

specific allegation in respect of what was the dowry amount

paid and what was the further demand made by the petitioners.

However, accused Nos.2 and 4 have already granted bail. When

the co-accused persons have already granted bail, these

petitioners are also entitled for bail on the ground of parity.

Accordingly, I proceed to pass the following

ORDER

Criminal petition is allowed. The respondent-Police

Station are directed to release the petitioners/accused Nos.1
