THIS BAIL APPLICATION HAVING COME UP FOR ADMISSION ON 15.11.2018,
THE COURT ON THE SAME DAY PASSED THE FOLLOWING:
B.A. No. 7410/2018 -2-

ORDER

The petitioners are accused Nos. 2 to 4 in Crime No. 2260 of 2018

of Kottarakkara Police Station, Kollam for offences punishable under

Sections 498A, 323 and 34 of IPC.

2. The case of the prosecution is as follows:

The marriage between the first accused and the de facto

complainant was solemnized on 21.08.2017 as per their religious rights

and customs. The first accused has taken 46 sovereigns of gold

ornaments and thereafter they demanded more dowry from the de facto

complainant. The first accused did not give the ornaments which are

kept in the locker and also used abusive words against the de facto

complainant. The third accused also abused her and the 4 th accused had

poured water on the floor so as to cause slipping to the de facto

complainant.

3. I have heard the learned counsel for the petitioners and the

learned Public Prosecutor.

4. The learned counsel for the petitioners argued that the

petitioners are innocent of the allegations levelled against the

petitioners. The case is essentially an outcome of matrimonial dispute.

Therefore, I find that it is just and proper to grant anticipatory bail to the
B.A. No. 7410/2018 -3-

petitioners.

In the result, this application is allowed and the SHO, Kottarakkara

is directed to enlarge the petitioners on bail in the event of their arrest

on execution of a bond for Rs.50,000/- (Rupees fifty thousand only)

each with two solvent sureties each for the like sum to the satisfaction

of the Investigating Officer.

ANNIE JOHN,
JUDGE.
