Penal Code pending before the learned Additional Chief Judicial
Magistrate, Bongaon, North 24 Parganas, the petitioner has

It is submitted by Mr. Bhattacharjee, learned advocate

report under Section 173(2) of the Code of Criminal Procedure

Having considered the materials in the case diary, we are of
the view that curtailment of the petitioner’s liberty, on facts and in
the circumstances, is not necessary and that this is a fit and
proper case for making direction, as prayed for.
Accordingly, C.R.M. 2531 of 2017 stands allowed with the
direction that in the event of arrest, the petitioner shall be released
on bail upon furnishing bond of Rs.5,000/- (Rupees Five
Thousand) each, with two sureties of like amount each, one of
whom must be local, to the satisfaction of the Court below.
