Criminal Procedure in connection with Khargram P.S. Case
No.96 of 2018 Dated 19.4.2018 under Sections 498A/304B/302
34 of the Indian Penal Code read with Sections 3 and 4 of the

In the matter of : Arshad @ Ashad Sk.
Mr. Kallol Mondal,
Mr. Krishan Ray,
Ms. Amrita Chel …for the Petitioner.
Mr. S.G. Mukherjee, Ld. PP,
Mr. Partha Pratim Das…for the State.
It is submitted on behalf of the petitioner that he is in
custody for 139 days and that other in-laws of the victim are on
regular bail. It is further submitted that the petitioner stands on
the same footing as the said accused persons who are on bail.
Learned counsel appearing for the State opposes the
prayer for bail.
Having considered the materials on record and bearing
in mind the extent of complicity of the petitioner in the alleged
crime and in view of the period of detention suffered by him, that
is, 139 days and that other co-accused persons who are
similarly circumstanced with the petitioner are on regular bail,
we are inclined to extend similar privilege to the petitioner also.
Accordingly, we direct that the petitioner 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, Kandi 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
In the event the petitioner 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, accordingly, allowed.
Urgent Photostat Certified copy of this order, if applied
for, be supplied expeditiously after complying with all necessary
