In Re: Usha Samanta Anr.
… … Petitioners.
Mr. Soumyajit Das Mahapatra,
… for the petitioners.
Mr. Narayan Prasad Agarwala,
Mr. Debabrata Dasgupta
… … for the State.
It is submitted on behalf of the petitioners that they are parents-in-law of
the victim housewife and they have been falsely implicated in the instant case.
Learned lawyer for the State opposes the prayer for anticipatory bail and
submits that the petitioner No.2 i.e. father-in-law of the victim housewife used to
give indecent proposal to her and petitioner No.1 i.e. mother-in-law of the victim
housewife prevented the children from meeting her.
We have considered the materials on record. We find that there is no
allegation with regard to indecent proposals by Petitioner No.2 to the de facto
complainant is bereft of material particulars as to date and time and the
allegation against Petitioner No.1 is also woefully vague. Under such
circumstances, we are inclined to grant anticipatory bail to the petitioners.
Accordingly, we direct that in the event of arrest, the petitioners 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 condition that the
petitioners shall appear before the court below and pray for regular bail within a
period of four weeks from date.
The application for anticipatory bail is, thus, disposed of.
