Recently, the Kerala High Court ruled that when there is prima facie evidence of abetment as defined by Section 306 of the Indian Penal Code, instances of abetment of suicide cannot be invalidated simply because of a settlement between the parties. According to Justice A Badharudeen, instances of aiding and abetting suicide may only be dismissed on settlement grounds if the case's circumstances do not initially support the accusations. This comes after a couple filed a petition to have a lawsuit against them for allegedly encouraging the man's mother to commit suicide dismissed by the court. HC on Suicide: ‘Love Failure’ Doesn’t Constitute Abetment of Suicide, Rules Delhi High Court.
