Laxmi Paul
Versus
The State of West Bengal

Mr. Kallol Mondal, Adv.

Mr. Krishna Ray, Adv.

Ms. A. Chel, Adv.

…for the petitioner
Mr. Rana Mukherjee, Adv.

Mr. A. Sen, Adv.

…for the State

It is submitted that the petitioner is in custody for one year and three months

and there is no progress in the trial of the case since the last rejection of the bail by this

Court.

Learned lawyer for the State opposes the prayer for bail.

We have considered the materials on record and we find that the victim

committed suicide within one year of marriage. Although the allegations are grave, we

note that in spite of protracted period of detention there is no progress in the trial since

the last rejection of bail by this Court. Hence, we are inclined in granting bail to the

petitioner, however, subject to strict condition.

Accordingly, the petitioner shall be released on bail upon furnishing bond of

Rs.10,000/-(Rupees Ten Thousand only) with two sureties of like amount, one of

whom shall be local, to the satisfaction of the learned Additional Chief Judicial

Magistrate, Barrackpore, North 24 Parganas, on condition that she shall not leave the

jurisdiction of Baranagar Police Station except attending court proceedings until

further orders and on further conditions that she shall appear before the trial court on

every date of hearing and shall not intimidate witnesses and/or 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 in accordance with law without further reference to

this court.

The application for bail is, thus, allowed.

(Ravi Krishan Kapur, J.) (Joymalya Bagchi, J.)
