Penal Code read with Section 4 of Dowry Prohibition Act.
– And –
In re:- Aswini Maishal …. Petitioner.
Mr. Siladitya Sanyal,
Mr. Sujan Chatterjee … For the petitioner.
Mr. S.G.Mukherjee, P.P.,
Mrs. Amita Gaur …. For the State.
Heard the learned Advocates appearing on behalf of the parties.
Perused the case diary.
The petitioner is in custody for 148 days and he is the principal
accused person. Charge sheet has already been submitted.
On perusal of the materials in the case diary, we find that
according to the opinion of the Autopsy Surgeon as recorded in the Post
Mortem Report of the victim housewife, her death was due to chemical
poisoning, which was ante mortem and suicidal in nature.
Taking into consideration the above materials in the case diary,
amongst others, and also after considering the fact that since our
attention has not been by the learned Advocate for the State in support of
necessity of further custodial detention of the petitioner even after
submission of the charge sheet or that in the event, bail is granted in his
favour, he is likely to abscond, we are inclined to allow the petitioner’s
prayer for bail.
Accordingly, we allow his 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 whom
must be local, to the satisfaction of the learned Additional Chief Judicial
Magistrate, Contai, Purba Medinipur.
The application for bail is, thus, disposed of.
