At the same time, Vismaya’s mother said that she was not satisfied with the sentence and that she was expecting life imprisonment. She said the accused would approach the apex court for maximum punishment.

The court ruled that the sentences should be served together. He was sentenced to 10 years imprisonment under section 304B, six years imprisonment in 306, a fine of Rs 2 lakh, two years imprisonment of 498A, a fine of Rs 50,000, six years imprisonment in three out of three prohibitions and one year imprisonment in four out of four dowry bans.

The sentence was passed by the Kollam Additional District Sessions Court. The court had yesterday found the accused guilty in the case.

As soon as the court convened this morning, the judge asked if the defendant had anything to say. The accused had said that he was innocent and that Visma had committed suicide. Defendant told the court that his father was unwell, had poor memory and was at risk of injury. Kiran Kumar also demanded commutation of the sentence.

At the same time, the prosecution said that there should be a verdict that sets an example for the society and there should be no sympathy. The social relevance of this case must be understood. The prosecution told the court that the court ruling should send a message to the community.

Punishment under section 304B should be given to the accused. This section is charged in the case of death following dowry torture. The maximum penalty under this section is imprisonment for a term not less than seven years or life imprisonment.

The prosecutor clarified that the case was not against the individual. Defendant was educated and a government official, but his wife was treated in an unnatural manner. The prosecution said that the maximum punishment should be given to the accused so that such crimes are not repeated tomorrow.

The prosecution argued that the girl was trampled to the ground in the name of dowry and that society would never accept this.

Nowhere in the world in a civilized society has a life sentence given to a suicidal urge. Dowry deaths all over the world are not given for life. It cannot be said that the country is looking into the case.
