taking into consideration the facts of the case,
nature of allegations, gravity of offences, role
attributed to the accused, without discussing the
evidence in detail, this Court is of the opinion
that this is a fit case to exercise the discretion
and enlarge the applicant on regular bail.

6. This Court has considered following aspects,

(a) the applicant is a lady accused and is in
jail since 19.02.2019;

(b) the investigation is concluded and the
chargesheet is filed;

(c) from the investigation papers and the
material placed on record including the
counter of chargesheet, it can be said that
at the most, the allegation of offence
punishable under Sections 498A r/w Section
120(B) of the Indian Penal Code as well as
under Section 201 of the Indian Penal Code is
made out against the present applicant.
However there is no allegation against the
applicant that she has committed the offence
punishable under Section 302 of the Indian
Penal Code.

Looking to the allegations leveled against
the applicant, I am inclined to consider the case
of the applicant.

7. This Court has also taken into consideration the
law laid down by the Hon’ble Apex Court in the
case of Sanjay Chandra Vs. Central Bureau of
Investigation, reported in [2012] 1 SCC 40.
