Court acquits man charged with setting his wife on fire

Court acquits man charged with setting his wife on fire

A Delhi court on Monday acquitted a man and his two family members of the charge of burning to death his wife in 2005 stating that the victim had said that she suffered injuries in an accidental fire. "The prosecution seeks to condemn its own witness (the victim) when it argues that the deceased

could not be said to be in a fit condition to record her statement before the SDM concerned," additional sessions judge JR Aryan said.

The court absolved Mahender Singh, husband of victim Lata, his brother Narender and their mother Nirmala Devi of the charge of dowry death and subjecting the woman to cruelty.

It lent credence to the dying declaration of the victim in which she, before succumbing to her injuries, had told the SDM that the fire was accidental and she was not burnt by either by her husband or by the in-laws.
