(Via Video Conference)
In Re:- An application for bail under section 438 of the
Code of Criminal Procedure in connection with Jalpaiguri
Women Police Station Case No. 144/2019 dated 07.11.2019
registered for investigation into offences punishable under
Sections 498A/304B/34 of the Indian Penal Code read with
Section 4 of the Dowry Prohibition Act.
In the matter of : Kalpana Roy
Ms. Jeenia Rudra
.. for the petitioner
Mr. Neguive Ahmed
..for the State
The petitioner undertakes to affirm and stamp the
petition as per the Rules within 48 hours of resumption of
normal functioning of the court. The petition is taken up
through video conference on the basis of such undertaking.
The petitioner is the mother-in-law of the deceased
victim. The prayer for bail of the husband of the victim has
been rejected earlier today.
Considering the extent of the petitioner’s involvement
with the incident that led to the unnatural death of the
victim, there may not be any need to take the petitioner
into custody at this stage as long as she cooperates with
the investigation and reports to the investigating officer as
and when called.
Accordingly, in the event of arrest, the petitioner will be
released on bail upon furnishing security of Rs.10,000/-
and personal release bond of equivalent value to the
satisfaction of the arresting officer. The petitioner must
comply with the provisions of Section 438(2) of the Code.
C.R.M. 3354 of 2020 is disposed of.
