Hon’ble Bachchoo Lal,J.
Heard learned counsel for the applicant, learned counsel for the complainant as well as learned A.G.A and perused the record.
Learned counsel for the applicant submits that the applicant is mother-in-law of the deceased. The applicant has falsely been implicated in the present case. There was no dispute of demand of dowry. The applicant has not harassed or tortured the deceased and has not compelled the deceased to commit suicide. The deceased herself consumed poison. It has further been submitted that there is general allegation against the applicant. No specific role has been assigned to the applicant. At the time of the alleged incident the applicant was not present at his house and she had gone to do the work in filed. The deceased has committed suicide herself. The applicant has no concern with the alleged incident. The applicant is aged about 55 years and she is suffering from several aliments. The case of the applicant is distinguishable from the case of the husband of the deceased. There is no criminal history of the applicant and is in jail since 3.9.2019.
Per contra, learned counsel for the complainant as well as learned A.G.A opposed the prayer for bail and argued that the deceased was harassed and tortured due to non fulfilment of demand of dowry. The deceased died less than two years of her marriage an unnatural death. The applicant has committed the alleged of offence, therefore, the applicant is not entitled 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.
