C.R.M. No.2817 of 2017
In re:- Siddhartha Dey …. Petitioner.
Re: An application for bail under Section 439 Cr.P.C. affirmed on 4.4.2017 in connection with
Habra Police Station Case No.1048/2016 dated 25.12.2016 under Section 302, 498A of the Indian Penal Code
and 3 4 of D.P. Act.
Ms. Sreyashee Biswas,
Mr. Debasis Bhattacharya … For the petitioner.
Mr. S.G. Mukherjee, P.P.,
Mrs. Amita Gaur …. For the State.
Heard the learned Advocates appearing on behalf of the parties.
Perused the case diary.
The petitioner is the husband, who is in custody for 103 days.
Investigation is over and charge sheet has been submitted and one of the
chargesheeted co-accused, is on bail.
The learned Counsel for the State, in her usual fairness, submits
that although this is a case, where the allegation against the petitioner
that he pushed the victim housewife from the terrace but in the injury
report, it is clearly noted that due to weakness of the limb, she fell down
We further find from the post mortem report that it was not
revealed whether the injuries are homicidal or not except that the same
was ante mortem in nature.
Having regard to above and considering the petitioner’s length of
detention in custody and when no case is made out from the side of the
State showing that further custodial detention of the petitioner is
necessary even after submission of the charge sheet or if he is released on
bail, he is likely to abscond, we allow his prayer for bail.
Let the petitioner be released on bail upon furnishing a bond of
Rs.10,000/- with two sureties of Rs.5,000/- each, one of whom must be
local, to the satisfaction of the learned Chief Judicial Magistrate, Barasat.
The application for bail is, thus, disposed of.
