Court No. - 48 Case :- CRIMINAL MISC. BAIL APPLICATION No. - 9402 of 2008 Petitioner :- Raj Kishore Sharma Respondent :- State Of U.P. Petitioner Counsel :- Mohd. Naushad Siddiqui Respondent Counsel :- Govt. Advocate Hon'ble Surendra Singh,J.
Applicant- Raj Kishore Sharma seeks bail in Case Crime No. 271 of 2007,
under Sections 304-B,498-A,201 IPC & 3/4 Dowry Prohibition Act, Police
Station Ali Nagar, District Chandauli.
Heard learned counsel for the applicant as well as learned A.G.A. and also

trial court is directed to make every endeavour to conclude the trial
expeditiously in consonance with the provisions of Section 309 Cr.P.C. Both
the parties are expected to cooperate with the proceedings and not to seek
The office is directed to send the copy of the order to the District Judge/Trial
Court immediately for the communication and necessary compliance.
