The applicant has not harassed or tortured the deceased and has not compelled the deceased to commit suicide. At the time of the alleged incident the applicant was living separate from the deceased and her husband. It has further been submitted that there is general allegation against the applicant. No specific role has been assigned to the applicant.The deceased has committed suicide herself. In postmortem report the cause of death of the deceased has been shown asphyxia due to thermal burn injuries. The deceased sustained accidental burn injuries while she was cooking food. There was no dying declaration of 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.
