The petitioner seeks anticipatory bail in connection with Amherst

Street W.P.S. Case No. 11 of 2018 dated 03.08.2018 under Sections

498A/406/34 of the Indian Penal Code.

The State opposes the prayer on the basis of the statement of the

victim and the complaint.

The petitioner claims that the complaint was lodged several months

after the wife left the matrimonial home and even after filing of the

matrimonial suit in June, 2018.

Considering the material on record, there does not appear to be any

need to take the petitioner into custody at the moment as long as the

petitioner provides for maintenance for the wife. The petitioner will pay a

sum of Rs. 7,000/- (Rupees seven thousand) per month to the wife

beginning the September, 2018 by the 15 day of each month. In the event

of default in payment for any month, the de facto complaint and the State

will be entitled to seek cancellation of the bail.

If the wife is awarded any alimony pendente lite or maintenance or

the like by any other forum, the payments made in terms of this order will

be adjusted against the same.

Subject to the petitioner beginning to pay the maintenance, as

aforesaid, and continuing to do so, in the event of arrest, the petitioner will

be granted bail upon furnishing security 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.

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.
