In the matter of: Altab Hassain @ Altaf Ali

Mr. S. Guha.

…for the petitioner.

Mr. Avishek Singha
…for the State.

It is submitted on behalf of the petitioner that there was a

matrimonial dispute between the niece of the petitioner and the

family members of the de facto complainant. A criminal case

was registered against them under Sections 498A, 376/506 IPC.

In retaliation, the instant case has been instituted against the


Learned counsel for the State opposes the prayer for

anticipatory bail.

We have considered the materials-on-record and in view of

the aforesaid submission relating to enmity by and between the

parties and the fact that victim had refused medical examination,

we are of the opinion that custodial interrogation of the petitioner

may not be necessary and he may be granted anticipatory bail.

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 and on further condition

that the petitioner shall meet the Officer-in-Charge of the

concerned Police Station once in a week until further orders.

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