… … for the State
The petitioner seeks anticipatory bail in connection with Dhubulia P.S.
Case No. 295 of 2018 dated 14.11.2018 under Sections 498A/304B/34 of
the Indian Penal Code.
The petitioner is the brother-in-law of the victim who apparently
committed suicide within a few months of her marriage.
The State refers to credible statements of neighbours to the effect
that the victim was ill-treated at the matrimonial home. However, there is
no material linking this petitioner to the incident which resulted in the
unnatural death of the victim.
Considering the material against the petitioner, there may not be any
need to take him into custody at this stage.
In the event of arrest, the petitioner will be granted bail upon
furnishing a bond of Rs. 10,000/- (Rupees ten thousand only), 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 petitioner is 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.
A certified copy of this order be immediately made available to the
petitioner, subject to compliance with all requisite formalities.
