Heard the learned Counsels appearing on behalf of the parties.
It is submitted on behalf of the petitioner that she is the
mother-in-law of the victim housewife. She renews her prayer for
bail. She is in custody for about 153 days.
Learned Advocate appearing for the State opposes the prayer
We have considered the materials on record including the
statement of the minor child of the deceased recorded under Section
164 of the Code of Criminal Procedure. Primary allegation is against
the brother-in-law of the victim housewife who set the victim on fire.
Keeping in mind the extent of complicity of the petitioner in the
alleged crime and the period of detention suffered by her, we are
inclined in granting bail to the petitioner.
Accordingly, the petitioner shall 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
Additional Chief Judicial Magistrate, Bolpur, Birbhum subject to
condition that the petitioner shall appear before the trial court on

witnesses or tamper with evidence in any manner whatsoever.

without any justifiable cause, the trial Court shall be at liberty to
cancel her bail in accordance with law without further reference to
The application, being C.R.M.12268 of 2019, is disposed of.
