The petitioner is seeking bail in connection with a case relating to offences
punishable under Sections 498A/304B of the Indian Penal Code.
It is submitted on behalf of the petitioner that he is in custody for about 80 days
and that he has been falsely implicated in the instant case. It is further submitted that he
resides in Kolkata in connection with his employment and hardly played any role in the
matrimonial life of the couple.
Learned Counsel for the State produces the case diary and opposes the prayer
Having considered the materials in the case diary and bearing in the mind the
nature of allegations in the light of the aforesaid submissions made on behalf of the
petitioner and the period of detention suffered by him, we are of the opinion that further
detention of the accused/petitioner is not necessary.
Therefore, the accused/petitioner, namely Mantazul Sk., be released on bail
upon furnishing a bond of Rs.10,000/- (Rupees Ten thousand only), with two sureties of
like amount, one of whom must be local, to the satisfaction of the learned Additional Chief
Judicial Magistrate, Arambagh, Hooghly 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 nor 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.
