498A/306 Of The Indian Penal Code vs In The Matter Of: Subir Mondal on 8 February, 2018


C.R.M. 1190 of 2018

     08.02.2018 In the matter of : An application for anticipatory bail under Section 438 of
     Ct. No. 28 the  Code  of  Criminal  Procedure  filed  on  07.02.2018  in  connection  with
Karimpur  P.S.  Case  No.  12  of  2018  dated  18.01.2018  under  sections
498A/306 of the Indian Penal Code.

In the matter of: Subir Mondal
                                            … … petitioner.

Mr. Asit Kumar Biswas
  … … for the petitioner.

Mr. Sudip Ghosh,
Mr. Bitasok Banerjee
… … for the State.

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

inordinate  delay  in  lodging  the  first  information  report.  It  is  further

submitted  that  the  petitioner  was  a  member  of  CRPF  and  was  ordinarily

away  from  the  matrimonial  home  as  he  was  posted  at  his  place  of  work

and the incident occurred ten years after marriage.

 Learned  counsel  appearing  for  the  State  opposes  the  prayer  for

anticipatory bail and submits that the petitioner suspected the character of

his wife.

We  have  considered  the  materials  in  the  case  diary  and  we  find

that  the  first  information  report  was  not  lodged  at  the  first  instance  and

there was a delay of six months in instituting the instant proceeding. The

petitioner  was  a  member  of  CRPF  and  was  posted  at  his  place  of  work

away from the matrimonial home and the incident occurred ten years after

marriage. Hence, we are of the opinion that custodial interrogation of the

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

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,  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.

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