Learned counsel for the applicant submits that the applicant is mother-in-law of the deceased. The applicant has falsely been implicated in the present case. There was no dispute of demand of dowry. The applicant has not harassed or tortured to the deceased. It has further been submitted that there is general allegation against the applicant. No specific role has been assigned to the applicant. The applicant has not committed the alleged offence. There is no direct evidence against the applicant. In postmortem report the cause of death of the deceased could not be ascertained, therefore the viscera was preserved. In viscera report oregano cloro insecticide poison has been found to the deceased. The applicant has no concern with the alleged incident. The case of the applicant is distinguishable from the case of the husband of the deceased. It has further been submitted that co-accused Smt. Priyanka, devrani and Rai Kant Pandey @ Amit Pandey, devar of the deceased have already been released on bail by another bench of this Court vide orders dated 17.9.2019 and 26.11.2019 respectively, therefore the applicant is also entitled for bail.There is no criminal history of the applicant and is in jail since 27.7.2019.
