In re: Kamalesh Roy @ Mahato. … Petitioner
Mr. Angshuman Chakraborty. …… for the petitioner
Mr. Saswato Gopal Mukherjee, Ld. PP,
Mrs. Amita Gaur. …. for the State
Heard the learned counsel appearing on behalf of the
respective parties. Perused the case diary.
The petitioner is in custody for 1270 days. Charge-sheet has
been submitted. Charge has already been framed and out of 25
prosecution witnesses, three have already been examined.
It is submitted by the learned Advocate appearing on behalf of
the petitioner that out of three charge-sheeted accused persons, bails
have been granted to two other accused persons. It is further
submitted by him that further custodial detention of the petitioner is
no longer required.
Our attention has been drawn by the learned Public
Prosecutor towards the statement made by the victim housewife on
March 20, 2014 to submit that according to that statement, her
husband was the person responsible to set her on fire pouring
kerosene on her body.
On perusal of the aforesaid materials in the case diary, we find
that the petitioner is the husband of the victim housewife and that
the co-accused persons, who have been granted bail, they are the
sister-in-law of the victim housewife and her husband.
On further perusal of the aforesaid materials in the case diary
and in particular the above statement of the victim housewife as also
taking into consideration that the trial has already been commenced,
we are not inclined to allow the prayer for bail of the petitioner in
This application for bail is dismissed accordingly.
