Liberty is given to Advocate for the petitioners to correct the cause-title
in the presence of an officer of this Court.
The petitioners seek anticipatory bail in connection with Shasan P.S.
Case No. 133 of 2018 dated 27.10.2018 under Sections 498A/302 of the
Indian Penal Code.
The petitioners are the relatives of the husband of the victim who
died of electrocution. The petitioners claim that the electrocution was by
accident, though the complaint makes out that the in-laws killed the victim
before giving it the impression of a case of electrocution.
The State produces the case diary and refers to the post-mortem
Considering the post-mortem report which indicates that the death
was due to anti-mortem electrocution, there may not be any need to take
the petitioners into custody. The husband remains arrested.
In the event of arrest, the petitioners will be granted bail upon
furnishing a bond 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 are directed to meet the
investigating officer at such time and place as may be specified by the
concerned police officer, till the investigation is completed.
The petition for anticipatory bail is allowed subject to the conditions
as indicated above.
Certified copies of this order be immediately made available to the
petitioners, subject to compliance with all requisite formalities.
