In Re: Sanjiv Kumar Thakur …… petitioner

Mr. Uday Sankar Chattopadhyay,
Mr. Santanu Maji,
Ms. Snigdha Saha,
Mr. Anubhuti Ganguly
…for the petitioner

Mr. Madhusudan Sur, learned A.P.P.,
Mr. Dipankar Paramanick
…. for the State

It is submitted by the learned Counsel appearing for the

petitioner that he is the brother-in-law of the victim housewife and

resided separately from the home where the couple resided. Co-

accused person Goutam Kumar Biswas has been granted pre-arrest


Learned Counsel appearing for the State submits that the victim

housewife suffered unnatural death within one year after her marriage.

Having considered the materials in the case diary and bearing in

mind the fact that the petitioner did not reside with the couple at the

matrimonial home and the extent of complicity of the petitioner in the

alleged crime, we are of the opinion that petitioner may be granted

anticipatory bail in the instant case.

Accordingly, we direct that 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, 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.

This application for anticipatory bail is, thus, disposed of.
