In re: Shantanu Sasmal @ Santanu Sasmal @ Shasmal.

                                                                     ... Petitioner

                    Mr. Pravash Bhattacharjee.        ...... for the petitioner

                    Mrs. Pushpita Saha.                 .... for the State

Heard the learned counsel appearing on behalf of the parties.

Perused the case diary.

The petitioner is the husband. He is in custody for 124 days.

Investigation is over and charge-sheet has been submitted and out of

three chargesheeted accused persons, two are on bail.

The learned counsel for the State opposes the prayer for bail

and alleges that so far as the allegations are concerned, the

difference between the petitioner and the other co-accused persons is

that the petitioner had an illicit affair with a local lady. She in this

regard draws our attention to the statements of the neighbouring

people, which are at pages 12 and 13 of the case diary but there we

do not find the identity of that lady with whom she had an affairs.

We repeatedly asked her to show that with whom she had an illicit

affairs but she is unable to do that.


Having regard to above and considering the materials collected

during investigation and when no case is made out from the side of

the State showing that further custodial detention of the petitioner is

necessary even after submission of the charge-sheet or if he is

released on bail, he is likely to abscond, we allow his prayer for bail.

Let the petitioner be released on bail upon furnishing a bond of

Rs.10,000/- with two sureties of Rs.5,000/- each one of whom must

be local, to the satisfaction of the Learned Additional Chief Judicial

Magistrate, Kakdwip, South 24 Parganas.

The application for bail is, thus, disposed of.
