17. On an analysis of the evidence, both oral and documentary, and on hearing the learned counsel for both sides at length, according to me the order of conviction and sentence passed against the appellants for commission of offences under Sections 498-A and 4 D.P. Act cannot be sustained in the absence of any cogent evidence regarding ‘torture’ or ‘harassment’ to the victim woman vis-a-vis demand of dowry and the same is to be set aside and the appeal is bound to succeed.
