In Re: Rejabul Biswas ……… petitioner
Mr. Samrat Choudhury
…for the petitioner
Mr. Swapan Banerjee,
Ms. Purnima Ghosh
… for the State
It is submitted by the learned Counsel appearing for the petitioner that he is a distant relation of the
victim housewife and has been falsely implicated in the instant case.
Learned Counsel appearing for the State opposes the prayer for anticipatory bail.
We have considered the materials on record including statements
of the children of the victim recorded under Section 164 of the Code of
Criminal Procedure. Keeping in mind the extent of complicity of the
petitioner as transpiring from the aforesaid materials, we are inclined to
grant anticipatory bail to him.
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 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 on further condition that
he shall meet the investigating officer once in a week until further orders
and shall appear before the court below and pray for regular bail within a
period of four weeks from date.
This application for anticipatory bail is, thus, allowed.
