Astobala Bag & Ors vs Unknown on 11 March, 2019





C.R.M. 2795 of 2019

In Re:- An application for anticipatory bail under Section 438 of
the Code of Criminal Procedure filed on 07.03.2019 in connection
with Rajapur P. S. Case No.47 of 2018 dated 20.08.2018 under
Sections 498A/304B/306/34 of the Indian Penal Code.

In the matter of : Astobala Bag Ors.

… Petitioners.

Mr. Debojyoti Deb,
Mr. Abhisek Banerjee.

…for the Petitioners.

Mr. Swapan Banerjee,
Ms. Purnima Ghosh.

…..for the State.

Heard the learned Advocates appearing for the parties.

It is submitted on behalf of the petitioners that they are in-

laws of the victim housewife and have been falsely implicated in

the instant case. It is also submitted that the principal accused i.e.

the husband of the victim has been released on bail.

Learned Advocate appearing for the State opposes the prayer

for anticipatory bail and submits that the victim committed suicide

within four years of marriage due to torture meted out to her.

We have considered the materials on record. We find that no

overt act is attributed to the petitioners and the allegations levelled

against them are general and omnibus in nature. Principal

accused has also been released on bail.

In view of the aforesaid facts, we are inclined to grant

anticipatory bail to the petitioners.

Accordingly, we direct that in the event of arrest the

petitioners viz., Astobala Bag, Kabita Bag and Jogomaya Roy shall

be released on bail upon furnishing a bond of Rs.10,000/- 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 petitioners shall appear before the trial

court and pray for regular bail within a fortnight from date.

This application for anticipatory bail is, thus, disposed of.
