…for the State
It is submitted on behalf of the petitioners that a matrimonial suit is pending by and
between the parities and the instant criminal proceeding has been instituted in order to exert
pressure upon the petitioners.
Learned lawyer for the de-facto complainant submits that the petitioners subjected her
client to mental and physical pressure.
We have considered the materials on record and we find that the matrimonial suit is
pending by and between the parties. During the pendency of the said suit the instant case has been
registered. In view of the aforesaid fact and bearing in mind the nature of allegations, we are of the
opinion that though the custodial interrogation of the petitioners may not be necessary, the
petitioners require to cooperate with the process of investigation in accordance with law.
Accordingly, 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 on further condition that the petitioners shall meet the
Officer-in-Charge of the Charu Market Police Station once in a week until further orders.
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.
