In Re: Tapan Biswas
… … Petitioner
Mr. Arnab Chatterjee .. Advocate
Mr. Amanul Islam .. Advocate
Mr. Sourav Chatterjee .. Advocate
… … for the petitioner
Mrs. Sayanti Santra .. Advocate
… … for the State
Petitioner is in custody for about 210 days and renews his prayer for bail as
there is no progress in the matter before the court below since the last rejection of bail by
Learned Counsel for the State opposes the prayer for bail and submits that the
petitioner is the principal accused and co-accused persons are absconding.
We have considered the materials on record. Keeping in mind the period of
detention suffered by the petitioner and as there is no progress in the matter since the last
rejection of bail by this court, we are of the opinion that further detention of the
accused/petitioner is not necessary.
Therefore, the accused/petitioner, namely Tapan Biswas., be released on bail
upon furnishing bond of Rs.10,000/- (Rupees Ten thousand only), with two sureties of like
amount each, one of whom must be local, to the satisfaction of the learned Chief Judicial
Magistrate, Nadia at Krishnanagar subject to condition that the said petitioner 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 he fails to appear before the trial court without justifiable cause, the
trial court shall be at liberty to cancel his bail automatically without reference to this court.
The application for bail, thus, stands allowed.
