Having considered the materials on record and bearing in mind the nature of
allegations and in view of the period of detention suffered by the petitioner and as
investigation is complete, we are of the opinion that further detention of the
accused/petitioner is not necessary.
Therefore, the accused/petitioner, namely Arijit Das, be released on bail upon
furnishing a bond of Rs.10,000/- (Rupees Ten thousand only), with two sureties of like
amount each, one of whom must be local, to the satisfaction of the learned Additional
Chief Judicial Magistrate, Serampore, Hooghly subject to condition that the said petitioner
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 he fails to appear before the trial court without justifiable cause, the
trial court shall be at liberty to cancel his bail automatically without reference to this court.
The application for bail, thus, stands allowed.
