In Re : Biswajit Mahapatra …. petitioner
Mr. Arup Kumar Bhowmick
….for the petitioner
Mr. S. G. Mukherjee, learned P.P.,
Mr. Partha Pratim Das
….. for the State
Petitioner is in custody for 123 days and renews his prayer for
Learned Counsel appearing for the State opposes the prayer
for bail and refers the statement of the deceased at page nos. 41 and
42 of the case diary.
We have considered the materials on record including the
aforesaid declaration of the deceased in the light of the statements of
her minor child with regard to the role of the petitioner in setting the
housewife on fire.
Accordingly, we are of the opinion that the petitioner does not
stand on the same footing with the co-accused persons who have
enlarged on bail and this is not a fit case to grant bail to him at this
The application for bail is, thus, rejected.
