In this case, State Vs. Vijay etc. (CNR No. DLCT01-001317-2014), the main fact is that, a newly wedded wife had committed suicide in her matrimonial home within one month of marriage because she was getting tortured by her husband and her in-laws. A suicide note was found and the charges were framed by the Court against the husband, mother-in-law, and brother-in-law of the deceased under Section 468A, 304B, 306, and 34 of Indian Penal Code, 1860. Additional Sessions Judge Charu Agarwal was hearing the plea and was of the view that, if a wife commits suicide after few days or months of marriage then the law raises presumption against the husband and husband’s family but it does not show the hyper sensitivity of the wife who did not give any time to manage this relationship.

The Court was of the view that, after a successful marriage, love, respect, mutual understanding and trust is needed between each other. After the marriage, the couple needs to understand each other and it takes months. In the initial stage of marriage most of the marriages don’t work well, be it love or arranged marriage and the couple needs to face various challenges. The solution to these problems is equally in the hands of both the husband and the wife, and the solution is only the couple's courage and calmness. The Court had noted that, those witnesses who had made allegations against the husband and in-laws regarding harassment due to demand of dowry and torture, had failed to prove the manner in which the deceased was harassed, abused, beaten and taunted.
Referring the suicide note the Court had said that the suicide note had only proved that there were some misunderstandings between the deceased and her husband and nothing else. In view of the above observation the Court had acquitted the husband and the in-laws of the deceased from all the charges and furnished a fresh bail bond of sum of Rs. 10000.
