Hon’ble Bachchoo Lal,J.
Heard learned counsel for the applicant, learned A.G.A. for the State and perused the record.
Learned counsel for the applicant submits that applicant is Nanad of the deceased. She has falsely been implicated in the present case. In postmortem report the cause of death has been shown asphyxia as a result of ante mortem hanging. It appears that the deceased has committed suicide herself. The applicant has no concern with the alleged incident. The applicant was residing separate from the deceased and her husband at 1216, near B.G.M. School, Shivaji Nagar, District Jhansi which is far away from the house of her parents. It has further been submitted that applicant is not the beneficiary of alleged demand of dowry. The marriage of applicant was solemnized about 20 years back from the alleged incident. The co-accused Govind Singh Kushwaha has already been released on bail by this court vide order dated 6.12.20-19 in Cr. Misc. Bail Application No. 54171 of 2019, therefore, applicant is also entitled for bail. There is no direct evidence against the applicant. The applicant has no criminal history and is in jail since 4.11.2019.
Per contra; learned A.G.A. has opposed the prayer for bail.
Considering the facts and circumstances of the case and without expressing any opinion on the merits of the case, I find it a fit case for bail.
Let the applicant Smt. Manju involved in Case Crime No. 281 of 2019, under Sectionsection 498A, Section304B IPC and Section 3/4 D.P. Act, P.S.
