the Indian Penal Code
In the matter of : Anowar Mondal Anr.
Mr. Nitish Bapari …for the Petitioners.
Mr. S. G. Mukherjee, Ld. PP,
Ms. Amita Gaur …for the State.
It is submitted on behalf of the petitioners that they are
in custody for 74 days and it is further submitted that they have
been falsely implicated in the instant case.
Learned counsel appearing for the State opposes the
prayer for bail.
We have considered the materials on record and we find
that on the date of the incident, there was a dispute between the
victim housewife and her husband, petitioner no.1 herein.
Subsequently she was found in burnt condition and died.
In view of the aforesaid fact and bearing in mind the
prima facie involvement of the petitioner no.1 – husband in the
alleged offence, we are not inclined to grant bail to the petitioner
The prayer for bail of petitioner no.1 is, accordingly,
However, keeping in mind the extent of complicity of
petitioner no.2, namely, Sukchand Mondal @ Suklal Mondal,
who is the brother-in-law of the victim housewife in the alleged
offence and the fact that investigation is complete and bearing in
mind the period of detention suffered by him, we are of the
opinion that his further detention is not necessary.
Accordingly, we direct that the petitioner no.2, namely,
Sukchand Mondal @ Suklal Mondal shall be released on bail
upon furnishing a bond of Rs.10,000/-(Rupees Ten Thousand
only) with two sureties of like amount each, one of whom shall
be local, to the satisfaction of the learned Additional Chief
Judicial Magistrate, Tehatta on condition that he shall appear
before the trial court on every date of hearing and shall not
intimidate witnesses nor tamper with evidence in any manner
In the event the petitioner no.2, namely, Sukchand
Mondal @ Suklal Mondal fails to appear before the trial court,
the trial court shall be at liberty to cancel his bail without
further reference to this Court.
The application for bail is partly allowed.
Urgent Photostat Certified copy of this order, if applied
for, be supplied expeditiously after complying with all necessary
