In Re: Imajuddin Sk. Ors.
… … Petitioners
Mr. Arnab Saha .. Advocate
… … for the petitioners
Ms. Sonali Das .. Advocate
… … for the State
Heard the learned advocate appearing for both the parties.
It is submitted on behalf of the petitioners that they are the in-laws of the victim-
housewife. It is further submitted that the principal accused i.e. the husband of the victim
has been enlarged on bail. It is also submitted that there is delay in lodging the FIR.
Learned advocate appearing for the State produces the case diary and opposes
the prayer for anticipatory bail.
Having considered the materials on record and bearing in mind the nature of
injuries and as the principal accused i.e. the husband of the victim has been enlarged on
bail and as there is delay in lodging the FIR, 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) Imajuddin Sk., (2) Jakerun Bibi, (3) Sajida Bibi (4) Sabina Bibi, 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.
