Matrimonial Offences

Publishers

In a case where husband beats his wife badly to the extent that she was required to be admitted to the hospital. While releasing the husband on bail, is it possible for the Court to put the condition of paying medical expenses of wife as a additional condition for granting bail. If yes, can any case law be provided.

It is like asking the murderer to support the family of murdered man.

is the wife already receives maintenance from husband,- then it is ok.

otherwise husband already bears the hospitalisation charges.

Any how, the imposition of condition to pay for medical bills can be a good punishment.

Yes, Sir, In cr.p.c. in bail provision, there is no mention that what conditions the presiding officer can impose on a bail seeker.  It depends from case to case and courts have adopted almost all a similar method.  In matrimonial matters, in anticipatory bail, the courts some times ask the in-laws to return dowry articles before granting anticipatory bail.  Similarly, if prosecution and complainant raises the issue of medical bills, the court may sympathetically consider and ask the bail seeker to pay the same for getting bail.  There is no illegality if such condition is laid down.
