SB Court 29

Narahari Mondal Anr.


The State of West Bengal Anr.

Mr. Prabir Adhya
… For the petitioners

Mr. Pratick Bose,
…. For the State

The learned advocate appearing on behalf of the petitioners

submits that although this is an application for quashing of a proceeding

under sections 406, 498A and 34 of the Indian Penal Code and section 3

and 4 of the Dowry Prohibition Act, the petitioners would not like to press

for the same and would instead pray for an expeditious disposal of the


Let a copy of the application be served upon Mr. Pratick Bose,

learned advocate who is present in Court today and who ordinarily

appears on behalf of the State. His engagement may be regularised in

due course.

The learned counsel for the petitioners submits that in this case the

First Information Report was lodged on 01.11.2006 and a Charge Sheet

was submitted in the year 2007. He submits that although trial started

after some time and till about a year ago twelve out of fourteen witnesses

in the case were examined during trial, yet the proceeding is dragging on

and the rest of the witnesses could not be examined. He submits that

undue delay is being caused in the trial without any fault on the part of the

present petitioners. He further submits that the next date of hearing is

fixed on 07.02.2019.

I have heard the submissions of the learned advocates for the

petitioners and the State and perused the revisional application including

the copy of the order sheet annexed.

In the interest of justice, I direct the learned trial court to conclude

the trial as expeditiously as possible without granting any unnecessary

adjournment to any of the parties, preferably within six months from the

next date of hearing.

The revisional application is disposed of.

Urgent photostat certified copy of this order may be supplied to the

parties expeditiously, if applied for.

(Jay Sengupta, J.)
