In the matter of: Jogen Barman Ors.
Mr. Anirban Banerjee, Adv.
…for the petitioners
Mr. Swapan Banerjee, Adv.
Ms. P. Ghosh, Adv.
…for the State
It is submitted on behalf of the petitioners that the victim died due to accidental
drowning 10 years of her marriage.
Learned lawyer for the State opposes the prayer for bail.
Having considered the materials in the case diary and bearing in mind the nature
of allegations which appears to be general and omnibus and the fact that the victim died
due to drowning ten years after her marriage, we are of the opinion that the petitioners
may be granted anticipatory bail.
In the event of arrest, the petitioners shall be released on bail upon furnishing
bond of Rs.10,000/- (Rupees Ten Thousand only) each with two sureties of like amount
each to the satisfaction of the arresting officer 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, allowed.
Urgent photostat certified copy of this order, if applied for, be supplied
expeditiously after complying with all necessary legal formalities.
