In Re : An application for bail under Section 439 of the Code of
Criminal Procedure filed on 20.12.2017 in connection with Saktipur
P.S. Case No. 22/17 dated 18.02.2017 under Sections 498A/304B of
the Indian Penal Code.
In the matter of : Arun Pal Anr.
Mr. Pratip Kr. Chatterjee
… for the Petitioners
Mr. Anwar Hossain
Ms. Ratna Ghosh
Allowed … for the State
It is submitted on behalf of the petitioners that they are
in custody for 75 days and it is submitted that co-accused
persons have been granted bail.
Learned counsel appearing for the State opposes the
prayer for bail.
We have considered the materials on record and we
find that petitioners stand on the same footing as the co-
accused persons who have been granted bail. Hence, we are
inclined in granting bail to the petitioners.
Accordingly, we direct that the petitioners shall be
released on bail upon furnishing bond of Rs.10,000/-(Rupees
Ten Thousand only) each with two sureties of Rs.5,000/-
(Rupees Five Thousand) each, to the satisfaction of the learned
Chief Judicial Magistrate, Murshidabad at Berhampore on
condition that they shall appear before the trial court on every
date of hearing and shall not intimidate witnesses or tamper
with evidence in any manner whatsoever.
In the event the petitioners fail to appear before the
trial court, the trial court shall be at liberty to cancel their 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 legal formalities.
