Hon’ble Bachchoo Lal,J.
Heard learned counsel for the applicant, learned A.G.A and perused the record.
Learned counsel for the applicant submits that the applicant is father-in-law of the deceased. There was no dispute of demand of dowry. The applicant has not harassed or tortured the deceased. In postmortem report the cause of death of the deceased has been shown asphyxia as a result of antemortem hanging. It has further been submitted that there is general allegation against the applicant. No specific role has been assigned to the applicant.The deceased has committed suicide herself. The applicant has no concern with the alleged incident. The case of the applicant is distinguishable from the case of the husband of the deceased. It has further been submitted that co-accused Smt. Meena mother-in-law of the deceased has already been released on bail by another bench of this Court vide order dated 28.11.2019 in Criminal Misc. Bail Application No. 42604 of 2019, therefore the applicant is also entitled for bail. There is no criminal history of the applicant and is in jail since 26.4.2019.
Per contra, learned A.G.A has opposed the prayer for bail.
Considering the facts and circumstances of the case, without expressing any opinion on the merits of the case, I find it a fit case for bail.
