Killer hubby gets 10 yr rigorous imprisonment

NAGPUR: District and additional sessions judge RG Asmar on Friday sentenced a former army man to 10 years rigorous imprisonment for abetting his wife’s suicide by demanding dowry. Rajesh Mate was convicted for offences under section 498A and 304-B of IPC and Dowry Prohibition Act for abetting wife Kanchan to commit suicide after constant harassment.

Additional public prosecutor Deepak Kolhe said the couple married on March 16, 2004, and used to stay at Nehru Nagar, near Surendra Nagar. Kanchan’s father transferred agricultural land to her name. However, the accused wanted this land to be transferred to his name, so he used to ill-treat and harass her.

On their third marriage anniversary, Rajesh under the influence of liquor once again harassed Kanchan. Fed up with the constant harassment, she consumed poison to end her life. The accused fled from the spot with gold jewellery, a mobile handset and Rs 12,000, totally worth Rs 1.56 lakh. On a complaint from the deceased’s brother Arvind Bante, Dhantoli police arrested Rajesh and produced him before the court.

The court relied on evidence of 10 prosecution witnesses to prove constant ill-treatment and harassment by the husband for transfer of land. Deceased Kanchan had earlier filed a complainant against Rajesh in Dhantoli police station and women’s cell over ill-treatment.
