The petitioner is seeking bail in connection with a case relating to offences
punishable under Sections 498A/307/34 of the Indian Penal Code.
It is submitted on behalf of the petitioner that he is in custody for about 156 days
and that the victim-housewife committed suicide after fourteen years of marriage.
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 the fact that the statutory presumptions under Sections 113A 113B of
the Evidence Act are not attracted to the facts of the present case, we are of the opinion
that further detention of the accused/petitioner is not necessary.
Therefore, the accused/petitioner, namely Amrit Mandal @ Amrita Mandal @
Amit Mandal @ Amrit, 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 Additional Chief Judicial Magistrate, Lalbagh,
Murshidabad 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.
