In the matter of : Jhuma Bauri

Mr. S. Chakraborty,
Mr. Vivekananda Bauri,
Mr. B. Dutta …for the Petitioner.

Mr. S. G. Mukherjee, Ld. PP,
Ms. Amita Gaur …for the State.

It is submitted on behalf of the petitioner that she is in

custody for 82 days and that investigation is complete. It is

further submitted that she is the sister-in-law of the victim

housewife and did not play any role in the matrimonial life of the


Learned Public Prosecutor appearing for the State

opposes the prayer for bail and submits that the petitioner along

with others had subjected the victim to torture upon demands of

dowry and the victim suffered death due to manual


We have considered the materials on record and we find

that the torture arose over demand of a motorcycle presumably

for the accused husband who is in custody. Keeping in mind the

extend of complicity of the petitioner in the alleged crime and the

period of detention suffered by her and that investigation is

complete, we are of the opinion that further detention of the

petitioner may not be necessary.

Accordingly, we direct that the petitioner shall 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 shall be local, to the satisfaction of the learned

Additional Chief Judicial Magistrate, Raghunathpur on

condition that she shall appear before the trial court on every

date of hearing and shall not intimidate witnesses nor tamper

with evidence in any manner whatsoever.

In the event the petitioner fails to appear before the trial

court, the trial court shall be at liberty to cancel her bail without

further reference to this Court.

The application for bail is, accordingly, allowed.

Urgent Photostat Certified copy of this order, if applied

for, be supplied expeditiously after complying with all necessary

legal formalities.
