In Re: Nemai Dhara Anr.
… … Petitioners
Mr. Navanil De .. Advocate
Ms. Ayantika Ray .. Advocate
… … for the petitioners
Mr. Saswata Gopal Mukherjee .. Ld. Public Prosecutor
Mrs. Amita Gaur .. Advocate
… … for the State
The petitioners are seeking bail in connection with a case relating to offences
punishable under Sections 498A/304B/34 of the Indian Penal Code read with Sections 3/4
of the Dowry Prohibition Act
Petitioner no.1 is in custody for 106 days and petitioner no.2 is in custody for 84
days and it is submitted that they have been falsely implicated in the instant case.
Learned advocate for the State opposes the prayer for bail and submits that the
victim committed suicide within five years of marriage.
Having considered the materials in the case diary and bearing in mind the
nature of allegations which are general and omnibus and keeping in mind the period of
detention suffered by the petitioners and the fact that investigation is complete, we are of
the opinion that further detention of the accused/petitioners is not necessary.
Therefore, the accused/petitioners, namely (1) Nemai Dhara (2) Shyamali
Dhara, be released on bail upon furnishing a bond 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 learned Additional Chief Judicial Magistrate, Contai, Purba Midnapore
subject to condition that the said petitioners shall appear before the trial court on every
date of hearing until further orders and shall not intimidate witnesses or tamper with
evidence in any manner whatsoever.
In the event they fail to appear before the trial court without justifiable cause, the
trial court shall be at liberty to cancel their bail automatically without reference to this
The application for bail, thus, stands allowed.
