THIS PETITION COMING ON FOR ORDERS THIS DAY, THE
COURT MADE THE FOLLOWING:

ORDER

Heard learned counsel for the petitioner.

2. Learned HCGP has not filed statement of objections but

has orally opposed the petition.

3. Petition is filed under Section 439 of Cr.P.C.

Investigation is completed and charge sheet is laid against the

petitioner and two others under Sections 498A, 304B r/w.34 of

IPC and 3 and 4 of DP Act.

4. The case of the prosecution is that marriage between 5.

the petitioner and the deceased was performed on 9.6.2012.

She stayed with the petitioner for about 20 days and thereafter

went to her parents house for Ashada. On 30.6.2012 she came

back to the matrimonial house to write her examination. On

31.7.2012, after writing the examination, she is stated to have

committed suicide by hanging in the house of the petitioner.
3

5. Though there are allegations that the petitioner herein

was harassing and ill-treating the deceased making demand for

additional dowry, yet the statements produced along the with

charge sheet disclose that the deceased herself had reported to

her sister that her husband viz. the petitioner herein had

suffered a stroke and suppressing this fact, he had married her

and as such, she found it incompatible to live with the petitioner.

6. Having regard to the above facts and having regard to

the nature of allegations made against the petitioner, in my

view, custody of the petitioner is not required to be extended

any further. Allegations made against the petitioner are required

to be substantiated by the testimony of the witnesses who are

closely related to the deceased and hence, there cannot be any

apprehension of the petitioner tampering the evidence or

prevailing upon the material witnesses. In that view of the

matter, the petition deserves to be allowed.
4

7. Accordingly, the criminal petition is allowed.

a) Petitioner is ordered to be enlarged on bail on
furnishing a bond in a sum of Rs.2,00,000/-
(Rupees Two Lakh only) with two sureties for
the likesum to the satisfaction of the
jurisdictional court.

b) Petitioner shall appear before the court as and
when required.

c) Petitioner shall not threaten or allure the
prosecution witnesses in whatsoever manner.

d) Petitioner shall not get involved in similar
offences.

e) Petitioner shall not leave the territorial limits of
the Trial Court without prior permission of the
Trial Court.
