Evidence Act (Indian) [I of 1872]
306 of the Penal Code provides for punishment to the person only in the case
where a suicide is abetted and intended but unfortunately, there is no
provision in our laws to punish such a person whose cruel behaviour drags a
married woman to commit suicide but section 11 3A of the Indian Evidence Act
and section 498A of the Indian Penal Code provide punishment in such cases and
it is expected our Parliament will enact similar laws.
