The petitioner is seeking bail in connection with a case relating to offences
punishable under Sections 498A/Section308/Section34/Section304 of the Indian Penal Code.
It is submitted on behalf of the petitioner that she is in custody for about 42 days
and that co-accused has been granted pre-arrest bail. It is further submitted that the child
had died accidentally due to choking.
Learned Counsel for the State produces the case diary and opposes the prayer
Having considered the materials on record and bearing in mind the nature of
allegations and in the light of the aforesaid submission made on behalf of the petitioner,
we are of the opinion that further detention of the accused/petitioner is not necessary.
Therefore, the accused/petitioner, namely Shipra Sharma @ Disha, 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, North 24-Parganas at Barasat 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
In the event she fails to appear before the trial court without justifiable cause,
the trial court shall be at liberty to cancel her bail automatically without reference to this
The application for bail, thus, stands allowed.
