THIS BAIL APPLICATION HAVING COME UP FOR ADMISSION ON 06.02.2019,
THE COURT ON THE SAME DAY PASSED THE FOLLOWING:
Bail Appl..No. 523 of 2019 2

ORDER

This application is filed under Section 439 of the Cr.P.C.

2. The applicant herein is the 1 st accused in Crime No.757 of

2018 of the Guruvayur Police Station registered under Sections 498A

and 306 IPC.

3. On 15.12.2018, the wife of the applicant herein committed

suicide by hanging in the matrimonial home. Specific case of the

prosecution is that the applicant herein and his mother had subjected

the deceased to cruelty and harassment demanding dowry. They are

alleged to abetted the suicide of the lady.

4. The learned counsel appearing for the applicant submitted

that the applicant is innocent. According to the learned counsel, there

are no materials whatsoever, even of a prima facie nature, to establish

that the applicant or his mother had either an intention to aid or

instigate his wife to commit suicide. Finally, it is submitted that the

applicant has been in custody from 21.12.2018 and it is prayed that

he be granted bail.

Bail Appl..No. 523 of 2019 3

5. Heard the learned Public Prosecutor who strenuously

opposed the prayer. It is submitted that the applicant is a person with

criminal antecedents with involvement in not less than 4 crimes. He

would further urge that the father of the deceased in his statement

has clearly stated that even on the days prior to the commission of

suicide, the applicant herein subjected the lady to physical as well as

mental harassment.

6. I have considered the submissions advanced. It appears

from the case diary that the investigation has progressed to the final

stages. Though the applicant is a person having a propensity to

involve in crimes, he has not been found guilty by a court of law.

Furthermore, in view of the substantial progress achieved in the

investigation, his further detention in custody does not appear to be

necessary.

7. In the result, this application will stand allowed. The

applicant shall be released on bail on his executing a bond for

Rs.50,000/- (Rupees Fifty thousand only) with two solvent sureties

each for the like sum to the satisfaction of the court having

jurisdiction. The above order shall be subject to the following
Bail Appl..No. 523 of 2019 4

conditions:

1). The applicant shall appear before the Investigating
Officer on every Saturdays between 9 am and 11 am, for a
period of three months or until the final report is filed
whichever is earlier.

2). He shall not intimidate or attempt to influence the
witnesses; nor shall he tamper with the evidence.

3). He shall not commit any offence while he is on bail.

In case of violation of any of the above conditions, the jurisdictional
Court shall be empowered to consider the application for cancellation,
if any, and pass appropriate orders in accordance with the law.
