The High Court says no need for any arrests; grants bail

A 28-year-old, Yathish, committed suicide on March 21, allegedly unable to bear the harassment by his wife and her family members. The High Court has ordered that there will be no arrest of the wife, her parents and brother by granting them bail.

The accused in the case are C Synthia (Carien Sindya) the wife, A Christoper, Curie (in-laws) and Cyress Clinton, the brother-in-law. They are all residents of Maragondanahalli. They have been charged for abetment of suicide. Synthia and Yathish were married only seven months earlier. Allegedly, Yathish was ill-treated and mentally harassed by the four family members.

 

On the fateful day, Christopher had lodged a complaint against Yathish at the Avalahalli police station. He was called to the station for questioning. Shamed by it, Yathish committed suicide. The autopsy indicated that Yathish died due to “asphyxia as a result of hanging.”

The four accused approached the High Court for bail fearing their arrest in the case. The HC noted that the finding of the autopsy was consistent with suicidal death. It granted bail with the reasoning that “considering the overall circumstances of the case and the character of evidence which is required to be collected against the petitioner, in my view no prejudice would be caused to the prosecution if petitioners are enlarged on bail subject to conditions.”

The four were directed to appear before the investigating officer within 15 days. “The investigating officer shall interrogate the petitioners and shall enlarge them on bail on the same day,” the HC said. The bail conditions include bonds of Rs 1 lakh each and sureties.
