In Re: Akash Bhunia @ Akas Sen
… … Petitioner
Mr. Santanu Maji .. Advocate
… … for the petitioner
Mr. Pradipta Ganguly .. Advocate
… … for the State
Petitioner undertakes to affirm and stamp the petition/application as per Rules
within 48 hours of resumption of normal functioning of the court. Subject to such
undertaking, the application is taken up for hearing through video conferencing.
Heard the learned advocates appearing for both the parties.
It is submitted on behalf of the petitioner that he is in custody since 19.10.2019.
It is further submitted that investigation is complete.
Learned advocate appearing for the State opposes the prayer for bail and prays
for time to produce the case diary.
Having considered the materials on record and bearing in mind the period of
detention suffered by the petitioner, we consider it prudent to release the petitioner on
interim bail in the present case however, subject to the following conditions.
Accordingly, the accused/petitioner namely, Akash Bhunia @ Akas Sen shall
be released on interim bail on executing a personal bond to the satisfaction of the
learned Chief Judicial Magistrate, Burdwan-in-charge subject to condition that the said
petitioner shall not intimidate witnesses or tamper with evidence in any manner
whatsoever and on further condition that he shall stay at his permanent residence and
shall not move out of his residence without the express permission of the Officer-in-
charge of the police station within whose jurisdiction he shall reside. Petitioner shall be
subjected to medical examination by the medical authorities attached to the correctional
home where he is presently lodged and shall be so released only upon issuance of a fit
certificate by the said authorities. The interim bail shall continue for a period of three
months or until further orders, whichever is earlier.
Let this matter appear for further hearing two months hence. Case diary be
produced on that day.
Learned Chief Judicial Magistrate, Burdwan-in-charge as well as all concerned
authorities shall act in terms of the copy downloaded from the official website of this court.
