In Re: – An application for anticipatory bail under Section 438 of
the Code of Criminal Procedure filed on 01/02/2018 in
connection with Nabadwip P.S. Case No. 451 of 2017 dated
05/11/2017 under
Sections 498A/304B/109/34 of the Indian
Penal Code.


In the matter of: Purnima Panda @ Purnima Saha

Mr. A. Basu,
Mr. R. Chakraborty,
Ms. P. Basu,
Ms. S. Basu
…for the petitioner.

Mr. S. Banerjee,
Mr. S. De
…for the State.

It is submitted on behalf of the petitioner that the victim

committed suicide at her paternal home. It is further submitted

that the petitioner is the aunt-in-law of the victim and the couple

had married out of love.

Learned counsel for the State opposes the prayer for

anticipatory bail.

Having considered the materials in the case diary and

bearing in mind the extent of complicity of the petitioner in the

alleged crime and the fact that the victim committed suicide at

her parental home two and half months after she left the

matrimonial home, we are inclined to grant 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.
