ALEXANDER THOMAS, J.
B.A. No. 6164 of 2019
Dated this the 24th day of September, 2019
The subject crime in this case is Annexure-I Crime No.492/2019 of
Kunnamangalam Police Station which has been initially registered under
Sec.174 of the SectionCr.P.C. on account of the unnatural death of the victim lady
concerned. Later, the Police after investigation has altered the offence to
that as per Sec. 498A of the SectionIPC and have arrayed 2 petitioners herein as
the 2 accused therein. The 1st petitioner (A1) is the husband of the lady
victim. The 2nd petitioner (A2) herein is the mother of the A1.
2. The prosecution case in short is that after the marriage of the
abovesaid spouses, the petitioners have treated the lady with harassment
and cruelty and that when the lady became 3 months pregnant, the doctor
had advised her to take complete bed rest. In spite of that, the petitioners
compelled her to do various household works and has scolded her for silly
matters etc. and thus inflicted cruelty on her.
3. After hearing both sides and after careful evaluation of the facts
and circumstances of this case, this Court is inclined to take the view that
the custodial interrogation of the petitioners may not be really warranted
for effectuating the smooth and effective conduct of the investigation.
