three months of the marriage, they started demanding

further dowry of Rs.5.00 lakhs, etc. Due to the ill treatment

and harassment, the deceased committed suicide in the

matrimonial home by strangulating herself.

3. The petitioners are none other than the sister and

brother of accused No.1. The allegations are omnibus in

were ill treating and harassing the deceased. What type of

harassment and ill treatment was given to her, has to be

established during the course of trial. Further added to that,

there is no allegation against the accused that they have ill

treated the deceased in such a way that it was sufficient for

her to commit suicide. The petitioners are the relatives of

accused No.1. There are serious allegations against accused

No.1, whereas casual allegations are made so far as the

petitioner No.2 is brother of accused No.1. Considering the

nature of the allegations made against the petitioners and as
