MARGAO: First Additional Sessions Judge Edgar Fernandes on Friday rejected the anticipatory bail application moved by Samolibai Aroskar and her three sisters in connection with the case filed against them for abetting the suicide by Savio D’Mello at his residence in Benaulim.

Following a complaint by Savio’s sister Sairah Joslyn D’Mello, the police registered a case against Samolibai and her sisters Milan, Prafula and Manju, for harassing Savio to end his life and have also relied upon the suicide note left behind by the deceased.

Public Prosecutor Subhash Desai argued strongly against granting bail, pointing out that abetting suicide was a non-bailable offence and carried a ten-year imprisonment term, if convicted. Besides, he pointed out that the suicide was committed within five weeks of marriage.

He also said the suicide note mentioned the three Samolibai’s sisters and various demands the wife made, including gifting a plot of 300 sq mts to her sisters. “A precious life has been lost due to the lady in question,” he said.

Incidentally, this is the first case where a wife is charged with abetting her husband’s suicide, as generally it is the male who is charged with abetting the suicide of the wife.
