The petitioner seeks anticipatory bail in connection with Malda P.S.

Case No. 446 of 2018 dated 21.10.2018 under Sections

498A/323/325/354/307 of the Indian Penal Code read with Sections 3/4

of the Dowry Prohibition Act.

The petitioner claims that a completely false charge has been brought

against him by the wife and the several attempts by the petitioner to

persuade the wife to return to the matrimonial home have failed. The

petitioner refers to a petition for restitution of conjugal rights.

However, the petitioner is willing to provide for the maintenance for

the petitioner’s minor daughter who is living with her mother.

The State produces the case diary and refers to the complaint.

Considering the material against the petitioner, there may not be any

need to take him into custody at this stage. Since the petitioner offers to

pay a sum of Rs. 4,000/- (Rupees four thousand) per month towards the

maintenance for his daughter, the petitioner should make the payment for

the month of January, 2019 by the 15th day of this month and continue to

make payments for the subsequent months in similar manner. In case of

any default, the wife will be entitled to seek cancellation. If any other

appropriate forum passes an order for alimony pendente lite or

maintenance or the like, the payments made in terms of this order will be

adjusted against the same.

Subject to the payment for the month of January, 2019 being first

made, 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.

3

A certified copy of this order be immediately made available to the

petitioner, subject to compliance with all requisite formalities.
