Magistrate, Serampore, Hooghly arising out of Dankuni P.S. Case No.

It has been alleged in the first information report that the
petitioner being the in-laws of the victim housewife had subjected her
to mental and physical torture and an illicit relation developed
between the petitioner and one Salma Begam.
Over such issue the victim was assaulted and finally on
28.8.2016 the petitioner came to the residence of the defacto
complainant where the victim was residing and instigated her to
commit suicide and consequentially the victim took poison and died.
It is submitted on behalf of the petitioner that the suicide
occurred at the parental home of the victim where she was residing
away from the petitioner for a considerable period of time.

defined under Section 107 of the Indian Penal Code. Investigation of
the instant case is in progress.
In view of the nature of allegations, I do not consider it prudent
to interdict the investigational process at this stage. In the event
investigation results in filing of police report against the petitioner, it
shall be open to him to agitate all issues as canvassed herein before
the learned Magistrate in accordance with law, if so advised.
With the aforesaid observation, the petition is disposed of.
