In Re: – An application for anticipatory bail under Section 438 of the Code of Criminal Procedure filed on 04/01/2018 in connection with Uttarpara P.S. Case No. 903 of 2017 dated 30/10/2017 under Sections 498A/306/304B/34 of the Indian Penal Code.
And In the matter of: Kamalika Bakshi (Mukherjee) ….petitioner.
Mr. Sandipan Ganguly, Sr. Adv., Mr. A. Ghatak, Adv., Md. A. Ansari, Adv., Mr. Y. Deora, Adv.…for the petitioner.
Mr. S. Banerjee, Adv., Ms. P. Ghosh, Adv.…for the State.
It is submitted on behalf of the petitioner that petitioner is the married sister-in-law of the victim housewife and it is submitted that the petitioner stands on the same footing as the co-accused person, namely Krishnendu Bakshi has been enlarged on bail.
Learned counsel for the State opposes the prayer for anticipatory bail.
Having considered the materials in the case diary and bearing in mind the fact that petitioner is the married sister-in- law and the fact that the co-accused person, namely Krishnendu Bakshi has been enlarged on bail, we are inclined in granting anticipatory bail to the petitioner.
In the event of arrest, the petitioner shall be released on bail upon furnishing a Bond of Rs. 10,000/- with two sureties of like amount each to the satisfaction of the Arresting Officer and also subject to the conditions as laid down under Section 438(2) of the Code of Criminal Procedure, 1973.
The application for anticipatory bail is, thus, disposed of.
