5. The marriage between the petitioner and

deceased was performed on 29.05.2017. The

deceased committed suicide by hanging in the

bathroom of her matrimonial house on 17.04.2018.

The father of the deceased lodged a report before the

police alleging cruelty and dowry demand by the

petitioner herein as the immediate provocation to

resort to suicide. The post-mortem report indicates

that the deceased did not suffer any external injuries

over her body and an oblique ligature mark was found

around her neck. Based on this finding, it is certified

that the deceased died as a result of hanging. Though

there are allegations of dowry demand and cruelty,

the same requires to be substantiated during trial.

Material witnesses relied on by the prosecution are the

immediate relatives of the deceased. Therefore, there

cannot be any apprehension of the petitioner

tampering with the evidence or prevailing upon those

witnesses.

6. Therefore, taking into consideration all the

above facts and circumstances, in my view, the

custody of the petitioner is not required to be

extended by way of punishment. His presence can be

secured for the purpose of trial by imposing necessary

conditions. Hence, the following:-
