The petitioner is seeking bail in connection with a case relating to offences
punishable under Sections 498A/Section304B of the Indian Penal Code.
It is submitted on behalf of the petitioner that he is the husband of the victim. It is
further submitted that he is in custody for more than 150 days.
Learned Counsel for the State produces the case diary and opposes the prayer
Having considered the materials on record and bearing in mind the fact that the
viscera of the victim has not been received as yet and in view of the period of detention
suffered by the petitioner, we are of the opinion that further detention of the
accused/petitioner is not necessary.
Therefore, the accused/petitioner, namely Manas Das, be released on bail upon
furnishing a bond of Rs.10,000/- (Rupees Ten thousand only), with two sureties of like
amount each, one of whom must be local, to the satisfaction of the learned Additional
Chief Judicial Magistrate, Serampore, Hooghly subject to condition that the said petitioner
shall appear before the trial court on every date of hearing until further orders and shall
not intimidate witnesses or tamper with evidence in any manner whatsoever.
In the event he fails to appear before the trial court without justifiable cause, the
trial court shall be at liberty to cancel his bail automatically without reference to this court.
The application for bail, thus, stands allowed.
