punishable under Sectionsection 498A read with Sectionsection 34 of the Indian Penal

also convicted for the offence punishable under Sectionsection 306 of the

Indian Penal Code by the Additional Sessions Judge, Nashik vide

Judgment and Order dated 22/2/2019 in Sessions Case No. 34 of 2018.

3 Perused the record and proceedings. It appears from the

record that Hemlata had immolated herself while she was residing with

her parents. On 18/6/2017 the applicants herein had been to the house

of P.W. 1 who happens to be the father of Hemlata. They had halted

there for a day. On the next day, the applicants and his 2 children aged

about 14 years and 12 years had left the house of P.W. 1. There was

quarrel between the couple. The record would indicate that the

applicant No. 1 was having illicit relation with another woman and he

had told her that he does not need her any more. The record would

also indicate that in the year 2015, Hemlata was suffering from

symptoms of schizophrenia and was under the treatment of Dr. Dhake as

well as Dr. Sule who happened to be psychiatrist. It prima facie appears

that Hemlata receded in the depression and therefore, she has

committed suicide.

4 It is in these circumstances that the substantive sentence

imposed upon the applicant deserves to be suspended during the

pendency of the appeal. Moreover, the applicant was on bail during the

pendency of the trial and has not committed breach of any condition

imposed upon him. Hence, following order is passed :

ORDER

Bond in the sum of Rs. 50,000/-each and one or more solvent sureties

(iii) Upon being enlarged on bail, the applicants shall report to the

Court of Sessions, Nashik once in six months on the date assigned by the

Court of Sessions, Nashik. Upon failure to attend any two consecutive

dates, the Sessions Court, Nashik shall make report to the High Court

and the prosecution is at liberty to move for cancellation of bail.

(iv) It is made clear that suspension of substantive sentence does

not amount to suspension of conviction.

5 The application is disposed of accordingly.
