CRM No.5862 of 2017
In the matter of an application for bail under Section 439 of the
Code of Criminal Procedure filed on 20.06.2017 in connection with
Hariharpara Police Station Case No.470 of 2012 dated 20.11.2012
under sections 498A/302/34 of the Indian Penal Code.
In Re:- Masud Mondal…. Petitioner(In Jail)
Ms.Benajir Hasna …. for the petitioner
Mr.Pradipta Ganguly… for the State.
Heard the learned advocates appearing on behalf of the
parties. Perused the case diary.
The petitioner is the husband of the victim-house. He was on
bail. Since on one occasion, he was absent in court, the learned
court cancelled his bail and issued warrant of arrest.
It is true that he surrendered in the court one and half years
after the issuance of warrant of arrest.
Now, considering the fact he was on bail and is in custody for
about 42 days, his prayer for bail stands allowed, but on stringent
Let the petitioner be released on bail upon furnishing a Bond
of Rs.20,000/-, with two sureties of Rs.10,000/- each, one of whom
must be local, to the satisfaction of the learned Chief Judicial
Magistrate, Berhampore, Murshidabad and on further condition that
after release, he shall not leave the Hariharpara Police Station
except for the purpose of attending the court-proceeding and shall
report to the Investigation Officer of the case thrice in every week
until further orders.
We make it clear that if the petitioner fails to make himself
available before the learned trial court, the learned trial court shall
have the liberty to cancel the bail granted to the petitioner and take
him into custody without any further reference to this Court.
Needless to mention that if such situation arises, then in that
case, before taking any step, the petitioner must be given a
reasonable opportunity of hearing.
Accordingly, this application for bail is disposed of.
