The petitioner is seeking bail in connection with a case relating to offences
punishable under Sections 498A/306/304B of the Indian Penal Code.
It is submitted on behalf of the petitioner that he is in custody for about 110 days
and investigation is complete. It is further submitted that he has been falsely implicated in
the instant case.
Learned Counsel for the State opposes the prayer for bail and submits that the
victim committed suicide within one year of marriage due to torture over demands of
Having considered the materials on record and bearing in mind the nature of
allegations and in view of the period of detention suffered by the petitioner and as
investigation is complete, we are of the opinion that further detention of the
accused/petitioner is not necessary.
Therefore, the accused/petitioner, namely Gautam Shil, be released on bail
upon furnishing a 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 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.
