The judgment included a three-year sentence under section 498 and a five-year sentence under section 306, accompanied by an additional six months of imprisonment without the option to pay a fine of Rs 5,000 for each section.

The verdict serves as a significant development in this case, offering closure and justice for the family of the deceased housewife.
