Sec.304 B of I.P.C. - there is no evidence that the deceased was treated with cruelty or harassment in connection with the demand of dowry “soon before her death” by the appellant

 After the alleged demand of gold karra two months  after  the
marriage, Sharanjit Kaur went to her house, again came back to  the  marital
house and again went to her father’s  house  and  again  came  back  to  the
marital house.  In our considered view, the alleged  demand  of  gold  karra
about two months after  the    marriage  cannot  be  said  to  constitute  a
proximate live link with the  death  of  deceased  Sharanjit  Kaur  and  the
conviction of the appellant under Section  304B  IPC  cannot  be  sustained.

Even though there is no evidence that the deceased  was  treated
with cruelty or harassment in connection with  the  demand  of  dowry  “soon
before her death” by the appellant, in our view, evidence  on  record  makes
out an offence  under  Section  498A  IPC.  So  far  as  the  sentence,  the
occurrence was of the year 1997.  The appellant is  having  three  grown  up
children. The appellant has already  undergone  sentence  for  a  period  of
about fifteen months.   In the facts and circumstances  of  the  case,   for
the conviction under Section 498A, she is sentenced to undergo  imprisonment

already undergone.
