Delhi Court awards lenient sentence to man who severely injured his wife [Read Judgement]

A man has been sent to three-month imprisonment by Delhi Court after he pushed his wife down the staircase under the influence of alcohol and injured her severely. The court took a lenient view towards him saying he was sorry for the act he did with his wife.

The Delhi Court has already sentenced him three months and 12 days of imprisonment, which he has already spent during his trial behind bars for the offence of attempt to commit culpable homicide punishable under section 308 of the Indian Penal Code, 1860.

The husband has been found guilty under section 308 (Part II) of the Indian Penal Code, 1860, which attracts punishment in the form of imprisonment up to seven years.

Additional Sessions Judge Vivek Kumar Gulia said “Further, he appears to be remorseful. Moreover, the complainant and their daughter had already left the company of the convict. This court is of the view that a lenient view is required to be taken against the convict. The convict is sentenced to imprisonment for the period already undergone (3 months and 12 days) by him.

As per the prosecution FIR was registered by his wife on April 16th, 2016 against her husband for abusing her under the influence of liquor, and when she resisted his behavior, he kicked and punched her.

Before her daughter could rescue her, her husband pushed her off the stairs, due to which she suffered multiple fractures and injuries in her hands, face, and head.

The court, while holding him guilty, relied on the sole testimony of the victim saying she answered all the material questions "convincingly and no inconsistency, discrepancy or contradiction cropped up during her deposition.
