…… for the de facto complainant
Heard the learned advocates appearing for the petitioner
and the State.
Having considered the materials on record and bearing in
mind that nature of allegations in the light of the submission that
he has been falsely implicated in the instant case, we are of the
opinion further detention of the petitioner is not necessary,
however his movement requires to be restricted in order to instill
confidence in the mind of the de facto complainant and to
prevent commission of similar offence.
Accordingly, the petitioner 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 CJM, Purba Medinipur on condition that the 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 on further condition that the petitioner
shall not enter the jurisdiction of Panskura P.S until further
orders except for purpose of investigation and attending court
proceeding and shall provide address where he shall presently
reside to the investigating officer as well as to the court below
and shall report to the officer in charge of the concerned P.S
within whose jurisdiction he shall presently reside once in a week
until further orders.
In the event he fails to appear before the trial court without
justifiable cause, the trial court shall be at liberty to cancel his
bail automatically without reference to this court.
The application being CRM 902 of 2020 is disposed of.
