In the matter of: Basudev Pal Anr.
Mr. Sk. Hossain Ali
…for the petitioners.
Mr. Anowar Hossain
Ms. Ratna Ghosh
…for the State.
The petitioners seek bail in connection with Kalna P.S.
Case No. 192/2018 dated 11/05/2018 under Sections
498A/304B/302/34 of the Indian Penal Code and 3/4 of D.P.
The petitioners are the parents-in-law of the victim who
suffered an unnatural death.
The husband of the victim is in custody.
The State produces the case diary and refers to the
general allegations of some of the neighbours to the effect that
the petitioners would torment and torture the victim in their
attempt to obtain more dowry.
However, there does not appear to be any material
immediately available which links the petitioners to the incident
that led to the unnatural death of the victim.
Accordingly, the petitioners are directed to be released on
bail upon furnishing bonds of Rs.10,000/- (Rupees Ten
Thousand only) each, with two sureties of like amount each, one
of whom must be local, to the satisfaction of the Additional Chief
Judicial Magistrate, Kalna, on condition that they shall not
intimidate the witnesses or tamper with the evidence in any
manner whatsoever and they shall appear before the trial court
on every date of hearing and in the event they fail to do so, the
trial court shall be at liberty to cancel their bail without further
reference to this Court.
The application for bail is, accordingly, allowed.
A certified copy of this order be immediately made
available to the petitioners, subject to compliance with all
