In Re: Rajendra Sribastab Ors.
… … Petitioners
Mr. Suman De .. Advocate
… … for the petitioners
Ms. Sonali Bhar .. Advocate
… … for the State
Heard the learned advocate appearing for both the parties.
It is submitted on behalf of the petitioners that the allegation of physical assault
is out and out false and they have been falsely implicated in the instant case.
Report is placed on record wherefrom it appears that the medical papers are not
found available in the hospital.
We have considered the materials on record in the light of the aforesaid report.
In the absence of medical papers supporting the allegation of physical assault, we are of
the opinion that custodial interrogation of the accused/petitioners may not be necessary in
the facts of the present case and they may be granted anticipatory bail.
Accordingly, we direct that in the event of arrest, the accused/petitioners,
namely (1) Rajendra Sribastab, (2) Arbin Sribastab (3) Dipali Sribastab, be released
on bail upon furnishing a bond of Rs.10,000/- (Rupees Ten thousand only) each, 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 they shall appear before the court below and pray for
regular bail within four weeks from date and petitioner no.1 shall meet the Investigating
Officer once in a week until further orders.
The application for anticipatory bail is, thus, disposed of.
