In Re: Tithi Mandal Anr.

… … Petitioners

Ms. Minoti Gomes .. Advocate
… … for the petitioners

Mr. Swapan Banerjee .. Advocate
Mr. Suman De .. Advocate
… … for the State

Heard the learned advocate appearing for both the parties.

It is submitted on behalf of the petitioners that petitioner no.1 is the married

sister-in-law of the victim-housewife and petitioner no.2 is her husband. It is further

submitted that they do not reside at the matrimonial home of the victim-housewife.

Learned advocate for the State opposes the prayer for anticipatory bail and

submits that the victim-housewife died due to strangulation within three months of


We have considered the materials on record. There is no material to show that

the petitioners were present at the matrimonial home on the fateful day. Keeping in mind

the extent of complicity of the petitioners particularly in the light of the submission that

they do not ordinarily reside in the matrimonial home of the victim-housewife who suffered

death due to strangulation, 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) Tithi Mandal (2) Sujit Mandal 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.

(Manojit Mandal, J.) (Joymalya Bagchi, J.)
