In Re : Sumati Khetropal @ Kshetropal @ Khetrapal …… petitioner
Mr. Uday Sankar Chattopadhyaya,
Mr. Santanu Maji,
Ms. Snigdha Saha
…..for the petitioner
Mr. Rana Mukherjee, learned A.P.P.,
Ms. Debjani Sahu
….for the State
Having considered the materials on record and in view of the extent
of complicity of the petitioner i.e. mother-in-law of the victim housewife in
the alleged crime, we are inclined to grant bail to the petitioner.
Accordingly we direct that the petitioner shall be released on bail
upon furnishing a bond of Rs.10,000/- with two sureties of like amount
each, one of whom must be local, to the satisfaction of the learned Chief
Judicial Magistrate, Purba Bardhaman, subject to condition that he shall
appear before the trial court on every date of hearing until further orders
and shall not intimidate the witnesses and/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 is, accordingly, allowed.
