3722 - a prima facie case of dowry death under section 304B IPC is made out, File No.4305/12, 08.07.2013

The Commission finds the explanation to the totally unsatisfactory. Recovery of dead body or corpus delicti is not necessary to establish the offence of dowry death or even murder. If the dead body is not recovered on that ground alone it cannot be said that offences under sections 302/304/304B is not made out. If the whereabout of the persons is not found or the body is not recovered it may indeed cast reflection on the investigation made by the police. Additional offence under section 201 IPC may also be made out.
