Bombay HC ruled upholding the conviction of a man for culpable homicide

  • The Bombay High Court recently ruled that the refusal of a woman to make tea for her husband did not equate to extreme and sudden provocation, upholding a man's conviction for culpable homicide that does not amount to murder.

  • The man had inflicted a hammer wound on the head of his wife after she declined to make tea for him. She finally passed away because of the injuries.

  • Though upholding the conviction, the Court made some powerful remarks on our society's distorted inequality and disparity of husband-wife relationships.

  • Justice Revati Mohite Dere heard an appeal pursuant to Section 304 (guilty homicide not equal to murder) and 201 (causing loss of evidence) of the person convicted of the offence.
