Mere harassment will not amount to abetment of suicide – Supreme Court

July 27, 2021

In the case of Shabbir Hussain v State of Madhya Pradesh, the Hon’ble Supreme court held that in order to bring a case within the provison of Section 306 IPC, there must be a case of suicide and in the commission of the said offence, the person who is said to have abetted the commission of suicide must have played an active role by an act of instigating or by doing a certain act to facilitate the commission of suicide. Mere harassment without any positive action on the part of the accused proximate to the time of occurrence which led to the suicide would not amount to an offence under Section 306 IPC
