Rejecting discharge pleas of two money lenders, the Bombay High Court has said that continuous verbal and physical abuse and repeated demand for return of money amounts to abetment of suicide.
Justice A M Badar was recently hearing a petition filed by two licensed money lenders, seeking discharge from a case of abetment of suicide. The duo were accused of assaulting and intimidating Umesh Bomble, a city resident, and abetting his suicide in September 2014.
His wife Sunita had filed a complaint against the duo. While dismissing the discharge plea, the court noted that continuously attacking a family man, both verbally and physically, in presence of his family members at his home and at his work place amounts to “instigation and provocation” to commit suicide.Content
