Pursuant to our earlier direction, Investigating Officer is personally present
before this court. His presence is noted and dispensed with.
Report is placed on record wherefrom it appears that some of the stridhan
articles have been recovered. Steps are being taken for recovery of the remaining articles.
Having considered the materials on record and bearing in mind the aforesaid
development in investigation, we are of the opinion that custodial interrogation of the
accused/petitioners may not be necessary in the facts of the present case and they may
be granted anticipatory bail.
Accordingly, we direct that in the event of arrest, the accused/petitioners namely
(1) Gour Sundar Jana @ Goutam, (2) Sutapa Jana, (3) Chinmoy Jana, (4) Swapan
Maity, (5) Krishna (Phuta) Maity, (6) Somen Maity (7) Tuk Tuki Mondal, 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 also be subject
to the conditions as laid down under Section 438(2) of the Code of Criminal Procedure,
1973 and on further condition that they shall appear before the court below and pray for
regular bail within four weeks from date.
The application for anticipatory bail is, thus, disposed of.
