General and vague allegations have been made against the applicant. Neither he ever made any demand of additional dowry nor the deceased was subjected to cruelty or harassment by him. In fact, the deceased was insisting to go to her ‘maika’, which was refused by the husband of the deceased, due to which, she out of frustration committed suicide. Similarly circumstanced another co-accused- the wife of the applicant- Tahrunnisha has already been admitted to bail by this Court vide order dated 15.10.2019 in Criminal Misc. Bail Application No.42048 of 2019 (SectionTahrunnisha vs. State of U.P.). Copy of bail order has been produced by learned counsel for the applicant, the same is taken on record.
