The petitioners seek anticipatory bail in connection with Murshidabad
P.S. Case No. 472 of 2018 dated 29.05.2018 under Sections 498A/302/34
of the Indian Penal Code and Sections 3/4 of the Dowry Prohibition Act.
The State produces the case diary which reveals that the present
petitioners may not have been residing with the victim in the usual course.
The records also indicate that the victim committed suicide and there are
statements that the victim had obtained loan from several persons.
Considering the material against the petitioners and the extent of
involvement of the petitioners in the unnatural death of the victim, there
may not be any need to take the petitioners into custody at this stage.
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 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.
