Attempt to commit suicide - offence under Section 55(a) of the Abkari Act and Section 309 IPC - HELD THAT:- There are no reason to deviate from the finding of conviction returned by the learned trial Court and confirmed by the High Court under the impugned judgment. At the same time, taking into consideration the overall aspect of the matter and the fact that 23 years have been rolled by this time from the date of incident and also noticing that there are no criminal antecedents against the appellant as indicated in Para 20 of the impugned judgment, while upholding conviction under Section 55(a), consider it appropriate to modify the sentence to simple imprisonment of one year and to pay a fine of Rs. 1,00,000/( Rupees One Lakh only), in default of payment of fine, to further undergo simple imprisonment of six months. Appeal disposed off.
