As they have not returned the cash and jewellery taken as dowry, the convicts will have to undergo imprisonment for another year and pay a fine of Rs. 5,000.
Ravishkumar, along with Prakash, is alleged to have harassed his wife, Shobha, of Bairanahalli village in Nelamangala, in a bid to get Rs. 3 lakh more as dowry from her parents.
Unable to bear the constant physical and mental torture, Shobha committed suicide at her husband's place on October 10, 1999.
The couple got married on July 11, 1999. A dowry of Rs. 50,000 in cash, 60 sovereigns of gold jewellery, and a site worth about Rs. 3 lakh was given to Ravishkumar at the time of marriage.
