SK Court No.26
CRM 6710 of 2017
In the matter of an application for bail under Section 439 of the
Code of Criminal Procedure filed on 11.07.2017 in connection
with Bishnupur Police Station Case No. 11 of 2017 dated
14.01.2017 under Sections 498A/304B/306/34 of the Indian
Penal Code and Sections 3 and 4 of the Dowry Prohibition Act.
In Re: Fulan Debi Das Anr. Petitioners.
Mr. Soumik Ganguli ……For the Petitioners.
Mr. Saswata Gopal Mukherjee, Ld. P.P.,
Mrs. Amita Gaur … For the State.
Heard the learned counsel appearing on behalf of the
parties. Perused the Case Diary.
The petitioners are the husband and the mother-in-law of
the victim/housewife. They are in custody for 190 days.
Investigation is completed and the case has been committed.
We find from the case diary that after the victim was
removed to the hospital, her statement was recorded by her
attending doctor, how she caught fire.
Now, going through the same, we find that this is a case
of committing suicide and she herself immolated her.
Having regard to above and considering the petitioners’
length of detention in custody and the progress of trial and when
no apprehension has been disclosed from the side of the State
that if the petitioners are released on bail, they are likely to
abscond or their further custodial detention is necessary even
after submission of charge-sheet, the prayer for bail is allowed.
Let the petitioners be released on bail upon furnishing
Bond of Rs. 10,000/- each, with two sureties of Rs. 5,000/-
each, one of whom must be local, to the satisfaction of the
Learned Additional Chief Judicial Magistrate, Bishnupur,
The instant application for bail is, thus, disposed of.
