Ms. S. Bhattacharya,

…for the State.
Petitioner is in custody for 144 days and it is submitted

Learned counsel appearing on behalf of the State opposes
the prayer for bail and submits that her prayer was earlier
rejected earlier on 14.02.2018.
Learned counsel appearing on behalf of the defacto
complainant also opposes the prayer for bail.
We have considered the materials on record and bearing
in mind the extent of complicity of the petitioner and the fact
that co-accused Sadhan Majumdar has been enlarged on bail
who is similarly circumstanced with the petitioner after the last
rejection of bail by this Court, we are of the opinion that further
detention of the petitioner is not necessary and she may be
Let the petitioner be released on bail upon furnishing a
Bond of Rs. 10,000/- with two sureties of like amount, one of
whom must be local, to the satisfaction of the Learned Chief
Judicial Magistrate, Barasat subject to the condition that during
bail he shall appear before the learned trial court regularly till
disposal of the trial and he shall not intimidate witnesses or
tamper with evidence in any manner whatsoever.
In the event the petitioner fails to comply with the
conditions as enshrined hereinbefore, it is open to the trial court
to cancel the bail without any further reference to this Court.
The application for bail is, thus, disposed of.
