Apprehending arrest in course of investigation of Purulia Sadar Police Station
Purulia (T) FIR No. 89 of 2017 dated 12.6.2017 under section 498A of the Indian Penal
Code, the petitioners have applied for anticipatory bail.
It is submitted on behalf of the petitioners that they have responded to the notice
issued by the investigating officer under section 41A of the Code of Criminal Procedure
We have heard learned advocates for the parties and perused the materials in the
case diary. Since the petitioners have complied with the aforesaid notice, we are of the
considered opinion that their custodial interrogation is not necessary for effective and
meaningful progress of investigation of the FIR and that they are entitled to direction as
prayed for in the application.
The application, thus, stands allowed with the direction that in the event of
arrest, the petitioners shall be released on bail upon furnishing bond of Rs.5000/-
(Rupees five thousand) each with two sureties of like amount each, one of whom must be
local to the satisfaction of the arresting officer and subject to condition as laid down in
sub-section (2) of section 438 of the Cr.P.C.
