In the matter of: Ripon Ali
Mr. Kallol Mondal, Adv.
Ms. A. Chel, Adv.
…for the petitioner
Z.N. Khan, Adv.
Ms. Debjani Sahu, Adv.
…for the State
The petitioner is in custody for 119 days and it is submitted that he has been
falsely implicated in the instant case.
Learned lawyer for the State opposes the prayer for bail.
We have considered the materials on record including the post mortem report
which shows that the victim died due to “ante mortem hanging” and in view of the
period of detention suffered by the petitioner and that the investigation is complete, we
are inclined in granting bail to the petitioner.
Accordingly, we direct that the petitioner shall be released on bail upon
furnishing a bond of Rs.10,000/-(Rupees Ten Thousand only) with two sureties of like
amount, one of whom shall be local, to the satisfaction of the learned Additional Chief
Judicial Magistrate, Malda at Chanchal, subject to the condition that he shall appear
before the trial court on every date of hearing and shall not intimidate witnesses or
tamper with evidence in any manner whatsoever.
In the event the petitioner fails to appear before the trial court, the trial court
shall be at liberty to cancel his bail in accordance with law without further reference to
The application for bail is, thus, allowed.
