Mr. Imran Ali

..for the State
The petitioners seek anticipatory bail in connection
with Kotwali Police Station Case No. 378 of 2018, dated
11.6.2018 registered for investigation into offences
punishable under Sections 498A/323/307/325/406/34
of the Indian Penal Code, 1960.
These petitioners are the brother of the husband of
the victim and the brother’s wife.
The State says that the statement given by the victim
under Section 164 of the Code reveals that the husband
and wife had agreed to the divorce subject to the
streedhan articles of the wife being returned. However,
the streedhan articles have not been returned.
Since the present petitioners may not have any
direct control over the streedhan articles of the defacto
complainant, there may not be any need to take the
petitioners into custody.
Accordingly, in the event of arrest, the petitioners
will be granted bail upon furnishing security of
Rs.10,000/- (Rupees ten thousand only) each, with two
sureties of Rs.5,000/- (Rupees five thousand only) each,
one of whom must be local, to the satisfaction of the
Arresting Officer, subject to the conditions as laid down
in Section 438 (2) of the Code of Criminal Procedure,
1973. In addition, the petitioners will also report to the
Investigating Officer at such time and place as may be
specified by the concerned police officer.
The petition for anticipatory bail is allowed subject
to the conditions as indicated above.
A certified copy of this order be immediately made
available to the petitioners subject to compliance with
all requisite formalities.
