of 2020);


In the matter of : Loxi Das @ Laxmi Das.


Mr. Navnil De,
Mr. Rajeshwar Chakraborty.

…For the Petitioner
Mr. Sudip Ghosh,
Mr. Bitasok Banerjee,
Mr. A. K. Dutta.

… For the State

This matter is taken up out of turn on mentioning of the

learned Advocate for the petitioner.

The petitioner has filed the instant application for bail under

Section 439 of the Code of Criminal Procedure in connection with

Chanditala Police Station Case No. 198 under Sections

498A/302/34 of the Indian Penal Code.

It is submitted that the petitioner is the mother in-law of the

victim lady and aged about 58 years and is languishing in jail since

last 148 days. The charge-sheet has been submitted and there is no

occasion to keep her in custody, more particularly, when her

husband has already been enlarged on bail.

Learned Advocate for the State opposes the prayer for bail. It is

submitted that the petitioner has played an active role in

commission of offence and, therefore, the application deserves to be


After hearing the respective submissions and on perusal of the

evidence of the minor victim boy recorded under Section 164 of the

Code of Criminal Procedure and the role attributable to her conduct

in commission of offence, we find that the petitioner stands on same

footing that of her husband.

Since the husband of the petitioner has already been enlarged

on bail by this Court on 4th January 2021 in CRM 10734 of 2020

and considering the age of the petitioner, we do not think that

further custody of the petitioner is required, more particularly, when

the charge-sheet has already been submitted.

The prayer for bail of the petitioner is allowed.

Accordingly, the petitioner shall be released on bail upon

furnishing a bond of Rs.10,000/- (Rupees Ten Thousand), 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 the condition that the petitioner

shall appear before the Trial Court on every date of hearing until

further orders.

In the event the petitioner fails to do so without any justifiable

cause, the Trial Court shall be at liberty to pass necessary order in

accordance with law without any further reference to this Court.

The application for bail, being CRM 4274 of 2021, is thus

disposed of.
