Mr. Debasish Roy
Mr. Avik Ghatak
Mr. Rakesh Poddar … for the petitioners
Mr. S. G. Mukherjee, Ld. PP
Ms. Amita Gaur … for the State
The learned advocate on behalf of petitioners submits that the petitioners
are parents-in-law of the victim deceased. The learned advocate submits that
admittedly the petitioners used to live elsewhere, away from the couple who
stayed at a rented place. He submits that the petitioners are in custody for about
two months and a charge sheet has been submitted in this case.
The learned advocate appearing on behalf of State submits that although
there are statement of witnesses about torture by the present petitioners, the
statement of the landlord of the couple recorded under Section 164 of the Code
indicates that only the victim and her husband were staying in the rented house.
Considering the materials available in the case diary, the fact that a charge
sheet has already been submitted and in view of the length of custody of the
present petitioners, we are inclined to grant bail to the petitioners.
Let the petitioner be released on bail subject to satisfaction of learned
Additional Chief Judicial Magistrate, Kalna, Burdwan on furnishing of a bond of
Rs.10,000/- with two sureties of like amount, one of whom shall be local, on
condition that the petitioners shall appear before the learned court below on
every date of hearing and shall not intimidate the witnesses and tamper with
evidence in any manner whatsoever.
In the event, the petitioners violate any of the conditions as referred to
above, the learned court below shall at liberty to cancel their bail prayer without
any further reference to this Court.
The application for bail is accordingly allowed.
Urgent photostat certified copy of this order, if applied for, be given to the
parties after compliance of necessary formalities.
