In re: Billal Sk @ Hazrat Bellal Anr. … Petitioners
Mr. Sandipan Ganguly. …… for the petitioners
Mr. Arun Kumar Maity, Ld. APP
Ms. Sukanya Bhattacharya. …. for the State
Heard the learned counsel appearing on behalf of the
respective parties. Perused the case diary.
The petitioner no.1 is in custody for 436 days. The petitioner
no.2 was arrested subsequent to submitting of the charge-sheet on
August 31, 2016.
Having heard the learned Advocate for the respective parties as
also considering the materials in the case diary including the
statements made by the victim lady at the time of her admission in
the hospital and her dying declaration, we are not inclined to allow
the prayer of the petitioner no.1, namely, Billal Sk @ Hazrat Bellal for
granting bail and the same is rejected.
However, upon consideration of the aforesaid materials
amongst others in the case diary and considering the age of the
petitioner no.2 (80 years, who is mother-in-law of the victim girl), we
allow the prayer for bail of the petitioner no.2, namely, Lalu Bewa @
Let the petitioner no.2, namely, Lalu Bewa @ Rajaba Bewa, be
released on bail upon furnishing a bond of Rs.10,000/- with two
sureties of Rs.5,000/- each, one of whom must be local, to the
satisfaction of the learned Chief Judicial Magistrate, Berhampore,
The application for bail is, thus, disposed of.
