A. Dear Sir,
It can be used to little extent or alternatively you get remanded the case to the Trial Court and lead defence evidence and get it marked by examining the concerned medical expert.

A. It would be better if you challenge the order on the basis of merits of the case. Prove that she was not subjected to harassment or any demand of dowry was made.

There is nothing in the case about the main ingredient of 304B IPC.. cruelty soon before death with the demand of dowry. but trial court convicted the husband on the medical ground.. ante mortem strangulation.. and doctor said in his testimony that these injuries showing in pm could not be by hanging.. although none injury is shown in PM except ligature mark (which was written in the form of abrasions and contusion 18X5 CM. thats so why the question was asked..
