on 11th February 2018 and on 23rd July 2018, the deceased committed

suicide at her matrimonial house. According to the prosecution, although at

the time of fixing the marriage, there was no demand from the applicant

and his family members, however, subsequently, the applicant and other

accused started demanding ornaments and household articles from the

deceased. It is alleged that the complainant, who is the father of the

deceased had agreed to fulfill the said demands of the applicant’s family at

the time of marriage and gave ornaments and other articles. According to

the complainant, in March 2018, Kawaljeet Kaur (deceased) called her

father (complainant) and disclosed to him that the applicant and his family

members were assaulting her. It is alleged that the deceased disclosed that

the applicant was demanding money, as he had lost money in gambling and

had to repay Rs. 1,00,000/-. It is further stated by the complainant that he

went to the applicant’s house at Ulhasnagar and took his daughter to Delhi.

It appears that the applicant also went to Delhi and thereafter, both returned

back to Ulhasnagar. It is alleged by the complainant that before the

applicant and his daughter returned to Ulhasnagar, he handed over a sum of

Rs. 65,000/- to the applicant. According to the complainant, on 23 rd July

2018, between 3:24 a.m and 3:27 a.m, he received four missed calls from

his daughter and at about 3:29 a.m, all that was disclosed by the deceased

to the complainant was that the applicant was drinking and had lost money

in gambling and was asking her to bring money and on refusal, assaulted

her. It appears that pursuant thereto, there was a quarrel between the

other. At about 12:30 p.m, the deceased committed suicide by hanging

herself, after locking the door from inside.
