In the matter of : Lutfar Rahman Mondal @ Lutfar Mondal Ors.
Mr. Snehansu Majumder
… … for the petitioners
Mr. R. Jana
… … for the State
It is submitted on behalf of the petitioner that the victim suffered
from accidental poisoning and have been falsely implicated in the instant
Learned counsel appearing for the State opposes the prayer for
anticipatory bail and submits that petitioners had administered poison to
the victim who was hospitalized.
We have considered the materials on record and bearing in mind the
prima facie involvement of the petitioner nos. 1 and 2, that is, parents-in-
law of the victim housewife in administering poison in a health drink to
her, we are not inclined to grant anticipatory bail to them.
However, in view of the fact that petitioner nos. 3 and 4, married
sisters-in-law of the victim housewife and do not ordinarily reside at their
matrimonial home of the victim and adjudging the extent of their
complicity in the alleged crime in the light of the aforesaid circumstance
and as petitioner no. 5 had removed the victim for hospitalization, we are
inclined to grant anticipatory bail to them.
Accordingly, we direct in the event of arrest the petitioner nos. 3 to 5
shall be released on bail upon furnishing a bond of Rs. 10,000/- (Rupees
ten thousand only) each, with two sureties of like amount each, to the
satisfaction of the arresting officer and subject to the conditions as laid
down under Section 438(2) of the Code of Criminal Procedure, 1973 and on
further condition that the petitioner nos. 3 to 5 shall appear before the
Court below and pray for regular bail within four weeks from date.
This application for anticipatory bail is, thus, partly allowed.
