Here's an implementation:

def duplicate_line(app=wingapi.kArgApplication):
   """Duplicate the current line on the line that follows it"""

   editor = app.GetActiveEditor()
   doc = editor.GetDocument()
   start, end = editor.GetSelection()

   start_lineno = doc.GetLineNumberFromPosition(start)

   line_start = doc.GetLineStart(start_lineno)
   line_end = doc.GetLineEnd(start_lineno)
   line = doc.GetCharRange(line_start, line_end)

   doc.InsertChars(line_end, editor.GetEol() + line)
