In the matter of: an application for bail under Section 439 of the
Code of Criminal Procedure filed on 07.07.2017 in connection with
Uluberia Police Station Case No. 13 of 2015 dated 06.01.2015 under
Sections 498A/326/307/34 of the Indian Penal Code and Sections 3
and 4 of the Dowry Prohibition Act and adding Sections 302/304B of
the Indian Penal Code.


In re.: Munsura Bibi @ Sk. Munsura. …Petitioner

Mr. Sanjib Seth. ..for the petitioner

Mr. Partha Pratim Das. … for the State.

Heard the learned counsel appearing on behalf of the parties.

Perused the case diary.

The petitioner is the married sister-in-law of the victim

housewife. She is in custody for 51 days.

Opposing the prayer for bail, the learned counsel for the State

draws our attention to the statement of the sister of the victim, who

was present at the time of occurrence at the matrimonial home of the

victim, where the incident took place, which is at page 90 of the case


Going through the same, we find there is specific allegation by

the said witness that before her death, she was subjected to torture

by this petitioner along with others.

We also find that before her attending Doctor and soon before

her death, the victim made a statement and in such statement, she

implicated the present petitioner as one of the miscreants, who set

her on fire.

It is true that two other co-accused persons are on bail but

they are on statutory bail.

Having regard to the facts as above, we are of the opinion that

this is not at all a fit case for bail.

Accordingly, the application for bail is rejected.
