In Re: Vivekananda Ghosh @ Bibekananda Ghosh
… … Petitioner
Mr. Diptendu Banerjee .. Advocate
… … for the petitioner
Mr. Rudradipta Nandy .. Advocate
… … for the State
Heard the learned advocate appearing for both the parties.
It is submitted on behalf of the petitioner that he is the father-in-law of the victim-
housewife and that he has been falsely implicated in the instant case. It is further
submitted that the victim-housewife committed suicide due to depression.
Learned advocate for the State produces the case diary and opposes the prayer
for anticipatory bail.
Having considered the materials on record and bearing in mind the extent of
complicity of the petitioner in the alleged crime and in the light of the aforesaid submission
made on behalf of the petitioner with regard to cause of suicide of the victim, we are of the
opinion that custodial interrogation of the accused/petitioner may not be necessary in the
facts of the present case and he may be granted anticipatory bail.
Accordingly, we direct that in the event of arrest, the accused/petitioner, namely
Vivekananda Ghosh @ Bibekananda Ghosh, be released on bail upon furnishing a
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 he shall appear before the court below and pray for regular bail within a
fortnight from date.
The application for anticipatory bail is, thus, disposed of.
