Heard the learned advocate appearing for both the parties.
Petitioner no.1 is the stepson of the victim-housewife and petitioner no.2 is his
wife. It is submitted on behalf of the petitioners that they have been falsely implicated in
the instant case.
Learned advocate for the State opposes the prayer for anticipatory bail and
submits that the petitioners along with their father tortured the victim-housewife and
compelled her to undergo abortion. He further submits that due to such torture, she
We have considered the materials on record. Keeping in mind the prima facie
involvement of the petitioner no.1 along with his father in torturing the victim-housewife
which compelled her to commit suicide, we are not inclined in granting anticipatory bail to
the petitioner no.1 herein.
Accordingly, the prayer for anticipatory bail of the accused/petitioner no.1
namely, (1) Khurshid Khan is rejected.
However, in view of the extent of complicity of the petitioner no.2 viz. wife of
petitioner no.1 in the alleged crime and the possibility of false implication of the said
petitioner no.2 due to her relationship with the other accused persons, we are of the
opinion that custodial interrogation of the petitioner no.2 is not necessary in the facts of
the present case and she may be granted anticipatory bail.
Accordingly, we direct that in the event of arrest, the accused/petitioner no.2
namely (2) Pinki Khan @ Jasmina Khan, be released on bail upon furnishing bond of
Rs.10,000/- (Rupees Ten thousand only), with two sureties of like amount each, to the
satisfaction of the arresting officer and also be subject to the conditions as laid down
under Section 438(2) of the Code of Criminal Procedure, 1973 and on further condition
that she shall appear before the court below and pray for regular bail within four weeks
The application for anticipatory bail is, thus, disposed of.
