    CRIMINAL APPEAL NO.228 OF 2014
    (@ SPECIAL LEAVE PETITION (CRL.)NO.9823 OF 2013)

    SRI KRUSHNA CHANDRA PRATIHARY …APPELLANT(S)
    VERSUS
    STATE OF ODISHA & ANR. …RESPONDENT(S)

    O R D E R
    Heard learned counsel for the parties.
    Leave granted.

    Learned senior counsel appearing on behalf of the
    appellant states that the appellant is in custody for nearly
    seventeen months pending trial. Learned counsel has also brought to our notice that out of six accused, two were granted bail.

    Learned senior counsel appearing on behalf of the
    impleaded respondent has raised an apprehension about his claim for bail. However, the State counsel has fairly stated that nothing has been alleged against the present appellant. Taking note of all
    these aspects and also of the fact that there is no possibility of
    trial being concluded in the near future, we are inclined to
    consider the claim of the appellant. Therefore, the appellant is
    ordered to be released on bail to the satisfaction of the District
    and Sessions Judge, Puri in ST Case No.24-38 of 2013, Puri Town PS Case No.117 of 2012 arising out of G.R. Case No. 1726 of 2012. The District and Sessions Judge is free to impose appropriate condition(s) as he deems fit. The criminal appeal is disposed of.

  2. Mr. Anoop,
    You are right, what Advocate and Puri M.P. Sri Pinaki Mishra said is right but being a Member of Parliament of Puri Constituency Mr. Pinaki Mishra should give his prior attention to the law and order situation of Puri. Talking about the right of the accused person is a lame excuse to hide the mistake he did. There are so many competent advocates in Supreme Court to give their service to release accused persons on bail (in Guna Singhari murder case) why only Pinaki Mishra became the advocate of the accused person? You must carefully note that all the three (M.P., M.L.A. & deceased Councillor) are from one political party hence importance should be given to Srimati Saradhamani’s statement in yesterday’s press conference also, she is an illiterate house wife and mother of deceased person hence her prediction may be correct up to some extent but still I can not believe that Law Minister Maheswar Mohanty can play such dirty politics to defame his image in Puri locality and several question are arising after this press conference,

    1. Why Srimati saradhamani has opened her mouth after her arrest?

    2. Why she has not taken the shelter of High court till date to get justice?

    3. Is it an election propaganda?

    What ever may be the reason, it is sure that common citizens of Puri are going to suffer a lot owing to the worst condition of Law and Order in Puri.
