                                  ----------------------------------

4 24-08-2011 Heard learned counsel for the petitioner as well as

learned Additional Public Prosecutor for the state.

Learned counsel for the petitioner points out that the

case of the petitioner has already been committed to the court

of sessions and so, he seeks permission to make necessary

correction in the prayer portion of the bail petition.

Permission is accorded.

Let the prayer portion of the petition be corrected

during course of the day.

Petitioner is husband of the deceased whose marriage

had taken place four years ago but allegedly, she was

subjected to cruelty and harassment by the petitioner and his

other family members on account of non-fulfillment of demand

of dowry and subsequently, they killed the deceased and threw

the dead body near the river.

The contention of learned counsel for the petitioner is

that as a matter of fact, the deceased committed suicide out of

anger and frustration. It is pointed out by him that in the first

information report, it has specifically been mentioned by the

informant that on 27.04.2008, the deceased and petitioner had

attended a marriage ceremony of son of the informant and after

the marriage, the deceased was taken to her Sasural by the
-2-

petitioner but the deceased was not ready to leave her Mayaka

and the above-said act of the petitioner annoyed the deceased

and out of anger, she committed suicide. It is further contended

by him that after suicide, the petitioner due to fear psychosis,

threw the dead body of the deceased near a river.

Regard being had to the facts and circumstances of

the case as well as submission of the parties, particularly,

keeping in mind that sign of strangulation has been found on

the neck of the deceased, I do not feel it proper to release the

petitioner on bail.

Accordingly, prayer for bail of the petitioner in

connection with Sessions Trial No. 45 of 2011 arising out of

Kinjar P.S. Case No. 32 of 2008 is hereby rejected.

However, learned trial court is directed to expedite the

trial of the petitioner and conclude the same preferably within

one year from the date of receipt of this order and if the trial of

the petitioner is not concluded within the above-said period, the

petitioner may renew his prayer for bail.

Let the order be communicated to the court of

Additional Sessions Judge-I, Jehanabad for needful.
