No. 117 of 2019 dated 01.11.2019 under Sections 498A/Section306/Section506/Section34 of the Indian Penal

In Re: Arindam Roy Ors.
… … Petitioners
Mr. Arnab Saha .. Advocate
… … for the petitioners
Mr. Tanmay Kumar Ghosh .. Advocate
Mrs. Sujata Das .. Advocate
… … for the State
Heard the learned advocate appearing for both the parties.
It is submitted on behalf of the petitioners that they have been falsely implicated
in the instant case.
Learned advocate appearing for the State produces the case diary and opposes
the prayer for anticipatory bail.
We have considered the materials on record. It is a matter to be decided at the
appropriate stage of the proceeding whether the conduct of the petitioners amounts to an
offence under Section 306 of the Indian Penal Code. Keeping in mind the nature of
allegations, 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
Accordingly, we direct that in the event of arrest, the accused/petitioners,
namely (1) Arindam Roy, (2) Sikha Roy, (3) Mithu Mohanta (4) Sombhu Mohanta,
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.
