In the matter of: Narayan Pal

Mr. Sanjib Kr. Dan
… for the petitioner
Mr. Sudip Ghosh
Mr. Apurba Kr. Datta
… for the State

Petitioner submits that he is the father-in-law of the

victim and has been falsely implicated in the instant case which

was registered in retaliation to a matrimonial suit filed by the

husband against the victim-wife.

Learned counsel appearing for the State opposes the

prayer for bail.

We have considered the materials on record and bearing

in mind the nature of allegations in the light of the aforesaid

submissions on behalf of the petitioner and the fact that the

medical papers relating to miscarriage relate to an incident in

2015, we are of the opinion that custodial interrogation of the

petitioner may not be necessary in the facts of the case and

petitioner may be granted anticipatory bail.

Accordingly, we direct that in the event of arrest, the

petitioner shall be released on anticipatory bail upon furnishing

bond of Rs.10,000/-(Rupees Ten Thousand only) with two

sureties of like amount, 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, accordingly,


Urgent Photostat Certified copy of this order, if applied

for, be supplied expeditiously after complying with all necessary

legal formalities.
