And

In re: Raju Dutta Anr. … Petitioners (In Jail)

Mr.Soumik Ganguli … for the petitioners

Mr.Partha Pratim Das … for the State.

Heard the learned advocates appearing on behalf of the parties. Perused

the case diary.

The petitioners are the husband and mother-in-law of the victim

housewife. They are in custody for 139 days. Investigation is over and charge

sheet has been submitted.

This is a case, where the victim housewife caught fire. Immediately,

thereafter, she was removed to the hospital and on the very next day of the

incident, her dying declaration was recorded in the injury report, where she

disclosed that she caught fire accidentally. Subsequently, about eight (8) days

after, her another dying declaration was recorded, where she disclosed that the

present petitioners are the persons, who set her on fire. Beside those two dying

declarations, no other implicating materials have been brought to our notice.

Having regard to the above and considering the petitioners’ length of

detention in custody and when no case is made out from the side of the State that

even after submission of the charge sheet, the petitioners’ custodial detention is
2

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

the prayer for bail of the petitioners stands allowed.

Let the petitioners be released on bail upon furnishing a 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 Chief Judicial

Magistrate, Bankura.

Accordingly, this application for bail is disposed of.
