This Criminal Petition coming on for Orders, this day
the Court made the following:-

ORDER

The present petition has been filed by the learned

counsel for the petitioner under Section 439 of Cr.P.C. to

release the accused/petitioner on bail for the offence

punishable under Section 498A, 306 r/w 34 of the IPC in

Crime No.154/2018 of Hosakote police station.

2. I have heard the learned counsel appearing for the

petitioner and the learned High Court Government Pleader

appearing for the respondent-State.

3. It is the case of the prosecution that the daughter

of the complainant Vijayalakshmi was given in marriage to

the petitioner-accused about nine years back and out of

the said wedlock they got two children and petitioner-

accused used to come every day by consuming alcohol and

was creating galata and harassing the daughter of the

complainant and when the same was informed over the
-3-

phone to the complainant, they convinced the accused and

panchayath was also held before elders in this behalf.

When again the deceased has come to the house of the

complainant alleging the assault and ill-treatment by the

accused, again a panchayat was held and she was sent

back to the house of the accused and on 7.3.2018 at about

5.00 p.m. deceased committed suicide by hanging to the

fan in the bed room and as such a complaint was

registered.

4. It is the contention of the learned counsel for the

petitioner that the petitioner-accused is innocent and he

has not ill-treated and harassed. He was not absconding.

He further submitted that the alleged offences are not

punishable with death or imprisonment for life and no

such panchayath was held as alleged. Only with an

intention to harass the petitioner, a false complaint has

been lodged. He is ready to abide by the conditions

imposed by this Court and ready to offer the sureties.
-4-

5. The learned High Court Government Pleader

vehemently argued that the complaint and other material

clearly goes to show that there was an ill-treatment to the

daughter of the complainant and because of the ill-

treatment and harassment caused and due to the

abetment she committed suicide by hanging to the fan.

There is prima facie material against the petitioner-

accused. On these ground, he prays to dismiss the petition.

6. I have carefully and cautiously gone through the

contents of the complaint and other material. Though there

are allegations with regard to the ill-treatment and

harassment caused to the deceased, there is no specific

averments in the complaint and other material to show

that she has been abetted to commit suicide.

7. Keeping in view the said fact that when the said

offences are not punishable with death or imprisonment for

life, then under such circumstances, I feel that by imposing

certain stringent conditions, if the petitioner is enlarged on
-5-

bail, it is going to meet the objections raised by the High

Court Government Pleader.

8. Taking into consideration the said aspect, the

petition is allowed and the petitioner-accused is enlarged

on bail subject to the following conditions:

i) Petitioner shall execute a personal bond for
Rs.1,00,000/- (Rupees One Lakh only) with
two sureties for the likesum to the
satisfaction of the trial Court.

ii) He shall not tamper with the prosecution
evidence in any manner till the disposal of
the case.

iii) He shall attend the trial Court whenever
required.
