In Re:- Chapala Biswas
Mr. Prabir Majumder
Mr. Snehansu Majumder .. for the petitioner
Mr. Avishek Sinha .. for the State
The petitioner seeks anticipatory bail in connection with
Hanskhali Police Station No. 386/2018 dated 1.11.2018 under Sections
498A/306/34 of the Indian Penal Code.
The petitioner submits that she is the mother-in-law of the victim
and the husband of the victim and other members of the matrimonial
family were arrested and subsequently enlarged on bail.
The victim appears to have ended her life by committing suicide.
The State refers to the case diary. Though there are certain
statements indicating some amount of torture upon the victim, the role
of the petitioner in the incident which led to the unnatural death of the
victim herein cannot be ascertained.
Considering the material available on record, there is no necessity
to take the petitioner into custody at this stage.
Accordingly, in the event of arrest, the petitioner will be granted
bail upon furnishing a bond of Rs.10,000/- (Rupees ten thousand only)
with two sureties of Rs.5,000/- (Rupees five thousand only) each to the
satisfaction of the arresting officer, subject to the conditions as laid
down in Section 438 (2) of the Code of Criminal Procedure, 1973. In
addition, the petitioner will also report to the investigating officer at
such time and place as may be specified by the concerned police officer,
till the investigation is completed.
CRM 354 of 2019 is allowed as above.
A certified copy of this order be immediately made available to the
petitioner subject to compliance with all requisite formalities.
