…… for the State
Heard the learned advocates appearing for the petitioner and the State.
Petition is in custody for 112 days and it is submitted on behalf of the
petitioner that investigation is complete.
Learned lawyer for the State opposes the prayer for bail and submits that
the victim housewife committed suicide within one year of marriage. Petitioner
had an illicit relation with another lady.
Having considered the materials on record and bearing in mind the nature
of allegations we are of the opinion allegation of illicit relation may be assessed at
the appropriate stage of the proceeding in accordance with law.
However, in the facts of the circumstances of the case and the period of
detention suffered by the petitioner and as investigation is complete, we are
inclined to grant bail to the petitioner.

Rs. 10,000/- with two sureties of like amount each, one of whom must be local to
the satisfaction of the learned CJM, Uttar Dinajpur on condition that the
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
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 being CRM 2715 of 2020 is disposed of.
