    We are very sorry to hear about this. Section 309 of the Penal Code sets out the fine and jail terms of the offence: Attempt to commit suicide 309. Whoever attempts to commit suicide, and does any act towards the commission of such offence, shall be punished with imprisonment for a term which may extend to one year, or with fine, or with both. However, you may wish to point out mitigating circumstances which may lead to a more lenient sentence.
