Applicants are in jail since October, 2018.
General allegations are levelled against the
applicants in the FIR and in the papers of
charge­sheet. No specific role is attributed
against the applicants.

Learned counsel appearing for the applicants
has pointed out from the material placed on
record that prior to the date of marriage of
the applicant No.1 with the deceased, father
of the deceased filed an FIR being C.R.No­I­9
of 2016 with Sihor Police Station for the
offence punishable under Section 363 and 366

application under Section 439 of the Code of
Criminal Procedure, 1973 before the Sessions
Court in which it was specifically averred
that at the relevant point of time deceased
left her house voluntarily and had gone with
said accused Rakeshbhai Hirabhai.
In view of the aforesaid material, it is
contended by learned advocate for the
applicants that marriage of the deceased was
solemnized with applicant No.1 against her
will and therefore it appears that within a
period of 7 months from the date of marriage,
she had committed suicide.

Looking to the aforesaid peculiar facts and
circumstances of the present case, I am
inclined to consider the case of the
applicant No.1 – husband of the deceased
