Dr. G.M. Natarajan v. State, Supreme Court

A woman, harassed by her husband and in-laws for additional dowry, committed suicide by jumping into a well with her baby.  The trial court acquitted the accused because the prosecution did not prove the case.  The Court reversed, holiding that if the facts necessary to create a presumption of dowry-death are shown, the burden of proof shifts to the defendant and not the prosecution.
