In re:- Asto Bag …. Petitioner.
Mr. Arnab Chatterjee,
Mr. Soumya Basu Roy Chowdhuri … For the petitioner.
Mr. Saswata Gopal Mukherjee, P.P.,
Mrs. Amita Gaur …. For the State.
Heard the learned Advocates appearing on behalf of the parties.
Perused the case diary.
The petitioner is in custody for 630 days. Charge sheet has
already been submitted. Charge has also been framed and the trial has
already been commenced.
Upon consideration of the materials in the case diary, more
particularly the dying declaration of the victim housewife as also taking
into consideration the fact that trial has already been commenced, we do
not think that this is a fit case to grant bail to the petitioner.
Accordingly, such prayer is rejected and the application for bail
However, the learned court below is directed to expedite the trial.
