BSF personnel granted bail in his son’s suicide case
New Delhi, Jun 24 (PTI) The Delhi High Court has allowed the bail plea of a former BSF personnel, charged with abetment of suicide of his son, saying that his remarriage could not be held as a reason for the boy taking his own life.
Justice S N Dhingra dismissed the police’s plea, which opposed the bail on the ground that the decision of the accused Hanuman Singh, 51, to marry for the second time was the reason behind the suicide of his eldest son Jasbeer in 2008.
“There can be several reasons for committing suicide and weaker tolerance power is one of them. There has to be a very strong connect between the act of committing suicide and the man goading the victim to do it,” the judge observed.
