ORDER

Petitioner is the accused in crime no.467/2018 of

Shornur police station. She allegedly committed an offence

punishable under Sec.498A of IPC. She seeks bail under

Sec.438 of Cr.P.C.

2. Prosecution case is as follows: A woman by

name Anjana committed suicide. She set herself ablaze on

13.5.2018 at her father’s house. She died 1½ months

thereafter. She was the daughter-in-law of the petitioner.

The petitioner had been harassing her daughter-in-law. The

former thereby committed an offence under Sec.498A of IPC.

3. Heard Sri.M.Sasindran, the learned counsel for

the petitioner and Sri.D.Chandrasenan, the learned public

prosecutor.

4. A young woman committed suicide. She set

herself ablaze on 13.5.2018 at her parental house. She died

1 ½ months after the said incident. Her mother-in-law is

indicted. The woman by name Anjana who committed

suicide gave a statement to the magistrate under Sec.164 of

Cr.P.C after the incident of her burning herself. I am shown

the copy of the said statement by the public prosecutor. It

appears to me prima facie that sufficient materials are not

available in the said statement against the petitioner. I

therefore allow the application.
