In Re : Raju Bhowmik @ Raju Bhowmick …… petitioner

Mr. D. Sur
Ms. A. Dutta
…… for the petitioner

Mr. A. K. Maiti
Ms. T. Mitra
…… for the State

Heard the learned advocates appearing for the parties.

Petitioner is in custody for more than three years and it is

submitted that trial has not concluded as yet.

Learned lawyer for the State opposes the prayer for bail and

submits that the prayer for bail of the petitioner was rejected

earlier and date for recording evidence is fixed in the month of

Keeping in mind the protracted period of detention suffered

by the petitioner i.e. over three years and there is no likelihood of

the trail concluding in the near future, we are inclined to grant bail

to the petitioner.

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

ACJM, Jhargram, Paschim Medinipur on condition that the

petitioner shall appear before the trial court on every date of

hearing until further orders and shall not intimidate witnesses or

tamper with evidence in any manner whatsoever and on further

condition that the petitioner shall not leave the jurisdiction of

Sankrail P.S. except for attending the court proceeding and meet

the Officer-in-Charge, Sankrail P.S once in a week until further


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 5554 of 2019 is disposed of.
