Cannot grant bail merely because petitioner is woman: Karnataka High Court in case where woman was accused of killing husband

"The offence alleged is grave in nature. Merely because the petitioner is a woman is not a ground to enlarge her on bail," the Court said.

The Karnataka High Court recently refused to grant bail to a woman alleged to have stabbed her husband to death, while remarking that it cannot release the petitioner on bail merely because she is a woman. [Dilli Rani v. State]
