Sri Rajesh Kumar Pandey and Khushboo Kumari, learned counsel jointly filed Vakalatnama on behalf of complainant, is taken on record.
Heard learned counsel for the applicant, learned counsel for the complainant as well as learned A.G.A. for the State and perused the record.
Learned counsel for the applicant submits that the FIR of the alleged incident has been lodged against 7 persons including the applicant. The applicant is not the family member of the husband of the deceased. He is said to be mediator of the marriage. He is not the beneficiary of the alleged demand of dowry. He has not harassed or tortured to the deceased and has no concern with the alleged incident. There is general allegation against the applicant. No specific role has been assigned to him. As per postmortem report the cause of death of the deceased could not be ascertained, therefore, viscera was preserved. In viscera report Aluminium Phosphate poison has been found to the deceased. There is no direct evidence against the applicant. He has falsely been implicated in the present case due to being mediator of the marriage. The applicant has no criminal history and is in jail since 8.9.2019.
Per contra; learned counsel for the complainant as well as learned A.G.A. have opposed the prayer for bail and argued that the marriage of the deceased was solemnized with co-accused Santosh on 2.6.2019 and the deceased died on 5.9.2019 within 3 months of her marriage. The deceased died an unnatural death. Poison has been found to her in viscera report. The deceased was harassed and tortured for non fulfillment of demand of dowry by the applicant and other co-accused, therefore, the applicant is not entitled 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.
