The Delhi High Court has refused to grant bail to Tilak, the accused in a case of dowry death involving his wife, stating the serious nature of the allegations and the broader societal implications of showing leniency.

The court highlighted that even in contemporary times, married women continue to suffer humiliation, abuse, and physical harm due to unmet dowry demands from their husbands and in-laws.

Justice Swarana Kanta Sharma, in her ruling, underscored the gravity of the case and dismissed the bail petition, emphasizing that the woman lost her life due to alleged torture over dowry. The victim's parents claimed repeated harassment, attributed to an extramarital affair and financial pressures from Tilak and his family.
