Having considered the materials in the case diary and bearing
in mind the prima facie involvement of petitioner 2 in torturing the
victim and compelling her to commit suicide, we are not inclined to

Accordingly, the petitioner no.1 is directed to be released on
bail upon furnishing a Bond of Rs. 10,000/- with two sureties of like
amount each, one of whom must be local, to the satisfaction of the
Learned Additional Chief Judicial Magistrate, Khatra, Bankura subject
