In Re: – An application for anticipatory bail under Section 438 of
the Code of Criminal Procedure filed on 19/10/2018 in

And

In the matter of: Basant Singha @ Basanta Singha
….petitioner.

Mr. Tirthankar Ghosh,
Mr. S. De,
Mr. S. Mukherjee
…for the petitioner.

Mr. Swapan Banerjee,
Ms. P. Ghosh
…for the State.

It is submitted on behalf of the petitioner that he is the

father-in-law of the victim housewife and the allegation of

attempted rape is not supported by materials particulars with

regard to the date of the incident.

The learned counsel appearing on behalf of the State

opposes the prayer for anticipatory bail and submits that the

victim committed suicide within five years of her marriage.

Having considered the materials in the case diary and

bearing in the mind the nature of allegations and the extent of

complicity of the petitioner i.e. the father-in-law of the victim

housewife and in view of the aforesaid submissions made on

behalf of the petitioner, we we are inclined to grant anticipatory

bail to the petitioner.

In the event of arrest, the petitioner shall be released on

bail upon furnishing a Bond of Rs. 10,000/- with two sureties of

like amount each to the satisfaction of the Arresting Officer and

also subject to the conditions as laid down under Section 438(2)

of the Code of Criminal Procedure, 1973 and on further

condition that he shall meet the investigating officer once in a
2

week until further orders.

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