Sri Kedar Nath Mishra, Advocate pointed out that his name has wrongly been shown in the list as counsel for the complainant.
Heard learned counsel for the applicant, learned A.G.A for the State and perused the record.
Learned counsel for the applicant submits that the applicant is mother-in-law of the deceased. There was no dispute of demand of dowry. The applicant has not harassed or tortured the deceased. It has further been submitted that there is general allegation against the applicant. No specific role has been assigned to the applicant. In postmortem report the cause of death of the deceased could not be ascertained, therefore, the viscera was preserved. It has further been submitted that the applicant has no concern with the alleged incident. The case of the applicant is distinguishable from the case of the husband of the deceased. It has further been submitted that co-accused Narendra Kumar and Mathura Prasad @ Akhilesh have already been released on bail by another bench of this Court vide order dated 30.9.2019 in Criminal Misc. Bail Application Nos. 40757 of 2019 and 40776 of 2019 respectively, therefore, the applicant is also entitled for bail. There is no criminal history of the applicant and is in jail since 25.6.2015.
