The petitioners are seeking bail in connection with a case relating to offences
punishable under Sections 498A/Section304B/Section34 of the Indian Penal Code.
It is submitted on behalf of the petitioners that they are in custody for about 60
days. It is further submitted that the principal accused i.e. the husband has been enlarged
Learned Counsel for the State produces the case diary and opposes the prayer
Having considered the materials on record and bearing in mind the general and
omnibus nature of allegations levelled against the petitioners and in view of the period of
detention suffered by them and as principal accused i.e. the husband of the victim-
housewife has been enlarged on bail, we are of the opinion that further detention of the
accused/petitioners is not necessary.
Therefore, the accused/petitioners, namely (1) Manuja Bibi (2) Sk. Illias, be
released on bail upon furnishing bond of Rs.10,000/- (Rupees Ten thousand only) each,
with two sureties of like amount each, one of whom must be local, to the satisfaction of
the learned Additional Chief Judicial Magistrate, Contai, Purba Medinipur subject to
condition that the said petitioners shall appear before the trial court on every date of
hearing until further orders and shall not intimidate witnesses or tamper with evidence in
any manner whatsoever.
In the event they fail to appear before the trial court without justifiable cause, the
trial court shall be at liberty to cancel their bail automatically without reference to this
The application for bail, thus, stands allowed.
