In Re:- An application for bail under Sectionsection 439 of the Code of
Criminal Procedure filed on 16.08.2019 in connection with
Patashpur Police Station Case No. 18/2019 dated 13.1.2019 for

In the matter of:-
Mr. Biswajit Manna
… for the petitioner
Mr. Anowar Hossain,
Ms. Sreyashee Biswas
…for the State
The petitioner seeks bail in connection with Patashpur Police
Station Case No. 18/2019 dated 13.1.2019 for alleged offence
punishable under Sections 498A/Section304B/Section34 of the Indian Penal
Code and under Sections 3/ Section4 of the Dowry Prohibition Act.
Learned advocate for the State raises objection against the
prayer for bail.
On perusal of the Case Diary, we do not find anything directly
attributable to this accused person. We are further informed that
husband is now on bail.
The accused petitioner is in custody for over 67 days. We do
not find any justification for further custodial interrogation in this
case. We are, therefore, inclined to release the petitioner on bail.
Accordingly, we grant bail to the petitioner upon furnishing a
bond of Rs.10,000/- (Rupees ten thousand only) with two sureties
of like amount each, one of whom must be local, to the satisfaction
of Learned Additional Chief Judicial Magistrate, Contai on
condition that petitioner shall appear before the trial court on
every date of hearing and shall not intimidate witnesses or tamper
with evidence in any manner whatsoever and shall not commit
similar offence in future, failure of any of such conditions, the
learned Court below shall be at liberty to cancel the bail without
any further reference to this Court.
C.R.M.7558 of 2019 stands disposed of.
A certified copy of this order be immediately made available to
the petitioner subject to compliance of all requisite formalities.
