In re:- Kanchan Hazra …. Petitioner.

-And-

Re: An application for bail under Section 439 Cr.P.C. affirmed on 22.6.2017 in connection
with Bauria Police Station Case No.181/2016 dated 20.10.2016 under Section 498A/304B/302/34
I.P.C.

Mr. Somnath Mukherjee,
Ms. Papiya Shaw … For the petitioner.

Mr. Bidyut Roy,
Ms. Rita Dutta …. For the State.

Heard the learned Advocates appearing on behalf of the

parties. Perused the case diary.

The petitioner is the mother-in-law of the victim housewife

and she is in custody for 255 days. It is true that trial has

commenced and out of thirteen witnesses, the examination of three

witnesses is complete.

However, going through the 164 statement of the son of

the victim although we find that there is specific allegation against

the husband but this petitioner has not been named, except there

are names of three others.

Having regard to the fact, as above and when no case is

made out from the side of the State showing that further custodial

detention of the petitioner is necessary or if she is released on bail,

she is likely to abscond, we allow her prayer for bail.

Let the petitioner be released on bail upon furnishing a

bond of Rs.10,000/- with two sureties of Rs.5,000/- each, one of
2

whom must be local, to the satisfaction of the learned Additional

Sessions Judge, 2nd Court, Uluberia, Howrah subject to the

condition that after release, the petitioner shall report to the

concerned police station in between 12.00 Noon to 2.00 p.m., once

in every week, until further orders.

It is also directed that after being released on bail, the

petitioner shall attend the trial court on each and every date so

fixed by such court and in case, she fails to appear in the court

below on any occasion without any justifiable reason, the trial court

shall have the liberty to cancel the bail granted to her and she be

taken into custody without any further reference to this Court.

The application for bail is, thus, disposed of.
