Re: An application for bail under Section 439 Cr.P.C. affirmed on 14.6.2017 in connection
with Contai Women Police Station Case No.24 dated 12.4.2017 under
Sections 498A/304B/34 of the
Indian Penal Code read with
Section 3 and 4 of the Dowry Prohibition Act.

Mr. Navanal De,
Mrs. Ayantika Roy … For the petitioners.

Mr. Koushik Biswas …. For the State.

Heard the learned Advocates appearing on behalf of the

parties. Perused the case diary.

The petitioners are the parents-in-law of the victim

housewife and they are in custody for 54 days.

This is a case, where both the husband and wife jointly

committed suicide by pouring kerosene oil on their person and before

her death, the dying declaration of the victim housewife was

recorded.

We have gone through the same and find that following

disputes over some domestic issues with her husband and the

father-in-law, the victim housewife committed suicide by setting her

on fire.

Having regard to the facts, as above and considering the

extent of involvement of the petitioners in the commission of the

offence and when no case is made out from the side of the State

showing that further custodial detention of the petitioners is
2

necessary or if they are released on bail, they are likely to abscond,

we allow their prayer for bail.

Let the petitioners be released on bail upon furnishing bond

of Rs.10,000/- each with two sureties of Rs.5,000/- each for each of

the petitioners, one of whom must be local, to the satisfaction of the

learned Chief Judicial Magistrate, Purba Midnapore at Tamluk.

The application for bail is, thus, disposed of.
